PerkinElmer Develops Clarus SQ 8 Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometer to Test Food Samples

A company focusing on enhancing health and safety of inhabitants and the surrounding environment, PerkinElmer has launched Clarus SQ 8 Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometer (GC/MS), creating a unique industry standard for stability and sensitivity.

SQ 8 GC/MS offers very-high sensitivity to precisely analyze samples with a signal to noise ratio of 800:1. This enables food and environmental testing labs the capability to identify minor levels of impurities and contaminants.

PerkinElmer’s Clarus SQ 8 GC/MS provides high-productivity and throughput by reducing the necessities for instrument calibration as well as minimizes the requirement for sample concentration and preparation, significantly improving the process flow. SQ 8 GC/MS offers precise results ensuring food and environmental testing labs to obey with the latest and developing regulatory specifications that enable acquiescence in food and environmental applications.

The company’s SQ 8 GC/MS requires less maintenance due to its innovative SMARTsource design that delivers regular and consistent output with increased yield. The features incorporated in Clarus SQ 8 GC/MS are further harmonized by the patented gas chromatography oven featuring rapid heating and cooling period for shorter times of investigative and injection-to-injection cycle. It also considerably decreases background noise, thereby offering superior-levels of confidence in testing food products consumed by humans. This is the most advanced instrumentation available at present representing long-lasting stability, high-precision, and sensitivity for consistent performance.

Dusty Tenney, Analytical Sciences and Laboratory Services’ President of PerkinElmer stated that the safety and quality of food products are the most important concern globally and analysis of contaminants and pesticide residues precisely is essential to ensure safety of environmental and human health. The company’s Clarus SQ 8 GC/MS offers customers the perfect tool to overcome hindrances prevailing in these markets, he added.
