Seeking ways to enhance efficiency to achieve higher productivity is the focus for laboratories performing Gas Chromatography (GC) and Liquid Chromatography (LC) analyses. At the heart of this pursuit Chromatography Data System (CDS) software plays a key role, offering a myriad of functionalities designed to simplify and optimize chromatography processes. From data acquisition tools to …

Today’s scientific lab leaders face mounting pressures to innovate and boost productivity while navigating stringent regulations. With tighter deadlines and increased budget scrutiny there is little room for distractions.  that take away time that could be spent on higher value activities. At PerkinElmer, we focus on providing solutions that reduce or eliminate tedious tasks which …

Global Trends and Sustainability of Mining Rare Earth Elements

Traditional liquid battery configurations, such as lithium-ion batteries (LIBs), can generate high amounts of pressure due to the swelling of electrodes and gas generation. Low pressures are considered desirable for battery systems as the cell pressure is transferred to the module and pack frame. Large forces, derived from these pressures, can lead to deformation of …

The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic resonated across industries, economies, and individual lives. And that triggered a shift in how businesses – including laboratories – operated. Contract testing laboratories faced their share of challenges, including supply chain shortages, logistics issues, and safety concerns for their staff. Even in the pandemic’s aftermath, testing labs continue to …

Microplastics in Air: Tiny Pollutants, Huge Consequences

When we think of plastic pollution, we’re likely to conjure up images of plastic litter in oceans or rivers. But there’s another, less visible form of plastic pollution that’s been gaining attention in recent years: microplastics in air. These tiny plastic particles – small enough to be inhaled – have become pervasive in the atmosphere, …

Every year, we create about 8.3 billion metric tons of plastic waste, and nine million tons of it finds its way into our oceans, lakes, rivers, and streams – and with a lifespan of up to 450 years, that constitutes lasting damage, no matter how you look at it. Much of that damage comes by …

Wildfires: Unraveling the Aftermath of Destruction

While considered a natural part of the Earth’s ecological cycle, wildfires have become an increasingly concerning environmental issue in recent years. These intense and destructive infernos – fueled by a combination of climate change; human negligence, including discarded cigarettes and unattended campfires; equipment failures; natural occurrences such as lighting strikes; and various other factors – …

I fell in love with 3D printing very early on – even earlier than my coming to PerkinElmer in 2012. I had come up with a novel design to make dress shoes with excellent airflow ventilation so that they are very comfortable to wear for the whole day. They are designed for businesspeople, doctors, lawyers, …

Triple-quadrupole mass spectrometry (LC/MS/MS) systems have seen substantial growth both in their capabilities and utilization. But even the most advanced systems are not immune to the challenges posed by contamination. We usually think that the inside of a mass spectrometer is a “clean” environment. Although these instruments are designed to minimize chances for contaminant reaction, …
