AxION® 2 TOF MS: Offers a broad array of detection capabilities designed to simplify and streamline virtually any analytical workflow that requires full spectrum capability, speed, sensitivity, or dynamic range. It offers exceptional sensitivity, along with PerkinElmer’s patented TrapPulse™ capability, for use in environmental, forensic, metabolite identification, impurity profiling, food safety, nutraceutical, or product degradation analysis.
AxION® DSA: An innovative sample introduction technology that brings ease, productivity and enhanced performance to any lab and provides a robust alternative to front-end GC or LC systems. No up-front chromatographic separation, lengthy method development, and minimal sample preparation are needed when using AxION DSA. Analytical labs specializing in food, forensics, environmental, pharmaceutical and industrial research are utilizing the AxION DSA to significantly save analysis time.
DairyGuard™ Milk Powder Analyzer: The only detection system available that tests for unknown adulterants and known compounds in milk powder -- such as protein, moisture and fat content. It applies advanced algorithms for screening and performs the same fast measurements already routinely used for protein, moisture, and fat monitoring. This ability to perform non-targeted screening can significantly decrease brand risk and help ensure the quality and safety of milk powder.
TMA 4000: A high-sensitivity thermomechanical analyzer (TMA) ideal for measuring the coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE) in materials for the electronics and polymer industries. Its rugged, easy-to-use design employs electronics and a unique Archimedean float system to control the amount of force applied and to dampen any vibration in the environment for an accurate determination of CTE.
Titan MPS™ Microwave Sample Preparation System: A safe, simple, cost-effective microwave sample preparation system for pressure digestion of a broad range of samples. Its intuitive design offers a color touch-screen controller, top-loading system to access the 8 or 16 reusable vessels, PFA-coated stainless steel body and a wide range of pre-loaded digestion methods that make it easy to use, helping to increase lab productivity.
Flexar™ PDA Plus™ Detector: Brings the flexibility of modular design, the power of sensitivity and accuracy, and the fastest sampling speeds to the most optically advanced photo diode array (PDA) detector on the market for food and environmental applications. Its design encompasses the widest detection range of any PDA detector available and rivals or exceeds that of conventional UV detectors.
Flexar™ SQ 300 MS: Designed for high (and ultra-high) performance liquid chromatography applications, it is the ideal detection solution for analysts seeking a fast, accurate and powerful analytical system to make their labs and workflows more efficient and productive. It helps analysts to identify, confirm and quantify compounds with complete confidence and is the ultimate "molecular weight machine" -- featuring advanced design solutions in ion source and mass spectrometry technology.
