PerkinElmer Advances Global Water Safety Awareness Through NexION™ 300 ICP-MS Webcast
Product News Apr 21, 2011
PerkinElmer, Inc., is supporting international non-governmental organization WaterAid with its environmental NexION webcast. With each download, PerkinElmer will donate $1 to the charity organization, whose mission is to transform lives in the world’s poorest communities by improving access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation.
By downloading the complimentary webcast, titled “The easiest and most cost-effective way to determine elements in environmental matrices by ICP-MS according to your regulations,” users can learn more about the role of the NexION 300 ICP-MS in ensuring compliance with European and U.S. environmental testing regulations.
The webcast highlights the most beneficial approach for these different matrices through the discussion of classic equation, collision cell and true reaction cell interference removal techniques. Featuring examples of novel and integrated technical solutions, the webcast comprehensively covers the latest solutions available to achieve the highest throughput in inorganic determinations.
“ICP-MS is the ideal analytical tool for detecting low level metal concentrations in drinking and river water. Meeting both E.U. and U.S. EPA method requirements, NexION 300’s unique UCT allows scientists to easily select the most efficient interference removal mode to protect human health. Our support of WaterAid demonstrates our continued commitment to achieve better water standards globally,” explained Mike McGettigan, vice president of marketing, Analytical Sciences & Laboratory Services, PerkinElmer.
He added, “PerkinElmer is an active corporate citizen creating better outcomes in our communities and contributing to the improvement of human and environmental health across the world. Through community involvement, product stewardship and responsible business practices, the Company is committed to making a difference.”
The NexION™ 300 Inductively Coupled Plasma-Mass Spectrometer (ICP-MS) advances and simplifies analysis of trace elements, helping address a range of global problems from air, water and food contamination to the integrity of pharmaceuticals and nutritional supplements.
Featuring patented Universal Cell Technology™ (UCT), the instrument is the only one of its kind with three modes of interference removal - standard, collision and dynamic reaction. Scientists can therefore choose the appropriate technique for their particular application, resulting in faster method development, higher capacity and more accurate results.
