PerkinElmer “For The Better” Tour Sheds Light on Innovative Scientific Solutions
News Sep 28, 2009
With the intent of arming attendees with cutting-edge information and support, the autumn programme kicks off in Lyon, France on October 15. The European seminars will take place in major cities across France, Spain, Italy, Germany and Austria, with additional dates planned later in the year. Further information about the tour and agendas are available at www.perkinelmer.com/forthebettertour.
Each “For the Better” seminar will offer a unique segment-specific agenda, developed by PerkinElmer’s regional specialists and delivered in local language. Guest industry speakers will join experts from PerkinElmer to explore current trends and issues affecting a range of sectors – from pharmaceutical, environmental analysis and food safety to polymers and chemical, energy and children's product safety.
The seminars will also demonstrate how solutions from PerkinElmer can be employed to improve productivity and performance through multiple techniques, including atomic and molecular spectroscopy, chromatography, mass spectrometry and thermal analysis.
Andy Attwood, vice president and general manager, Analytical Sciences and Laboratory Services, Europe, PerkinElmer, comments: “We can’t wait to hit the road with this autumn’s tour, which promises to be our most diverse yet. The seminars are a great opportunity for us to directly interact with customers and ensure that, with our help, they’ll stay one step ahead in this difficult economic climate. Whether the analytical challenge is in environmental, food safety, polymers, petrochemical or other areas, we’ll work to help our customers find a solution to almost any challenge.”
