PerkinElmer, Inc. has announced the extension of their OneSource Laboratory Services contract with Minerva Scientific, a specialist pharmaceutical testing laboratory based in Derbyshire, UK.

In order to maintain a competitive edge, independent testing laboratories are under increasing pressure to reduce project turnaround times. PerkinElmer has been providing Minerva Scientific solutions for maximizing instrument uptime since 2003.

Understanding the needs of analytical testing companies, OneSource Laboratory Services facilitates faster and higher sample throughput through multi-vendor instrument repair, maintenance and qualification. Minerva Scientific deploys a range of analytical instrumentation from ubiquitous Liquid Chromatography (LC), Gas Chromatography (GC) and Infrared (IR) systems to more specialized Liquid Chromatography /Mass Spectrometry (LC/MS) and LC/MS/MS systems to provide pharmaceutical product release testing, quality assurance (QA), stability testing and analytical method development. PerkinElmer has proven capabilities in providing complete asset management and has invested in maintenance solutions for a broad range of technologies, including mass spectrometry systems, optimizing instrument uptime while maintaining data quality and integrity.

Ian Brown, Technical Director, Minerva Scientific UK, noted: "Recognizing that the servicing of MS systems requires specialist skills, we rely on OneSource from PerkinElmer for this capability. They provide breakdown cover for our high demand MS systems, maximizing laboratory productivity."

Hansueli Goeldi, European Service Leader, PerkinElmer commented: "Standard instrumentation, as well as highly specialized MS systems are covered by OneSource Laboratory Services, and this has allowed Minerva Scientific to control costs and improve productivity through consolidation of equipment maintenance and qualification through one supplier."
