  • Celebrates 50th Anniversary of GC Innovation
  • Introduces New Application-based Solutions and Product Enhancements that Increase Speed and Productivity

ORLANDO, Fla. – PerkinElmer Inc. (NYSE: PKI ), a leading provider of drug discovery, life science research, and analytical solutions, today announced that it will showcase industry-leading products and solutions at the annual Pittsburgh Conference (PITTCON) at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida, Booth 4728.

Among the products being shown are two new gas chromatography (GC) systems: the PerkinElmer-Arnel™ TOGA (transformer oil and gas analyzer) system, integrated with PerkinElmer's TurboMatrix™ Headspace Sampler, for the analysis of transformer oil fault gases; and a system featuring the PerkinElmer TurboMatrix Headspace Trap for the analysis of off-flavor components in beer. Both systems provide enhanced analysis while meeting industry standards and specifications.

During the show, PerkinElmer will celebrate the 50th anniversary of its GC technology by highlighting many of the “firsts” that PerkinElmer has achieved in product innovation over the past five decades.

PerkinElmer's booth will also showcase significant enhancements to the company's ELAN® line of ICP-MS instrumentation. These include a simplified new design, an application-specific software package called Chromera™ that efficiently combines all components of a speciation measurement system, and ELAN Enhanced Security software for 21 CFR Part 11 compliance.

Another highlight is the LABWORKS™ LIMS Online Administrator, which provides secure browser-based access for reviewing test information, results and reports.

Peter B. Coggins, Ph.D., president of PerkinElmer LAS, is a featured speaker at the American Chemical Society/Centcom Ltd. 27th Annual Breakfast, held at PITTCON on March 1.

“We are constantly motivated by our customers to develop powerful, integrated solutions of software, instruments and service that meet their needs,” said Coggins. “PITTCON remains an important venue for connecting with customers and introducing market-driven solutions that will enhance their productivity and efficiency and accelerate their time to market for new products.”
