    QSight Pesticides Analyzer Brochure

    Pesticides can adversely affect human health through the food we consume but can also leach into soil and groundwater and impact us through the environment. To keep up with a complex and constantly changing regulatory environment, your pesticide analysis solution needs to keep up with your burgeoning sample load.

  • Brochure

    Clarus 590 and 690 Brochure

    In today’s budget-constrained, yet highly competitive laboratory environments, the samples you’re being asked to analyze - whether food, pharmaceutical, petrochemical, or environmental - are increasingly difficult. But for some labs, having a dedicated GC for every application isn’t an option. For them, a GC that can do it all isn’t just a nice-to have, it’s a necessity.

    For laboratories analyzing everything from air quality to flavors and fragrances, thermal desorption offers a faster, easier, more cost-efficient way to prepare samples for GC or GC/MS analysis. Ideal for the trace-level measurement of volatile organic compounds (VOCs)—as well as most semi-volatile chemicals—thermal desorption lets you avoid time-consuming, manual, solvent-based sample preparation in favor of a simple, streamlined, automated approach. It also delivers the added benefits of superior throughput and enhanced sensitivity.

    Ozone Precursor System

    The analysis of C2 to C12 volatile organic ozone-precursor compounds can present a serious technical challenge to the analytical chemist. Low concentrations in the atmosphere coupled with the need to monitor frequently to assess diurnal variations means that a preconcentration step of the sample before analysis by thermal desorption is required. While the samples can be collected in the field and returned to the laboratory, remote, field-based analysis is desired which allows reduced data turnaround time, minimizes sample collection hardware and permits the presence or absence of VOCs to be correlated with meteorological data. In the field, low-molecular-weight C2 VOCs can be trapped on solid adsorbents if those adsorbents are cryogenically cooled.

    Analysis of Ginsenosides in Ginseng Root with the PerkinElmer Flexar FX-15 System Equipped with a PDA Detector

    Ginseng has been used as an herbal medicine in Asia for over two thousand years for its purported various health benefits, including antioxidant, anticarcinogenic, antiinflammatory, antihypertensive and anti-diabetic. The pharmacologically active compounds behind the claims of ginseng’s efficacy are ginsenosides; their underlying mechanism of action although not entirely elucidated appears to be similar to that of steroid hormones. There are a number of ginseng species, and each has its own set of ginsenosides.

    Analysis of Aflatoxins by UHPLC

    Aflatoxin B1 is considered to be the most genotoxic of the mycotoxins, and, when ingested by cows, is converted to aflatoxin M1 which has been shown to cause liver cancer in certain animals.

    Analysis of Mycotoxins in Multi-Grain and Corn Cereals

    Mycotoxins produced by fungi as toxic secondary metabolites, leave grains, maize and cereals particularly vulnerable. With this in mind, and considering that an estimated 25% of all crops show some signs of mycotoxin contamination, many countries have established regulatory guidelines for maximum mycotoxin limits in not only feed and grain, but also in processed food products.

    Residual Solvents in Pharmaceuticals by USP Chapter 467 Methodology

    The synthesis of active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) may require multiple reaction steps that produce undesirable reaction byproducts or utilize various solvents that have to be removed from the finished product. These solvents and byproducts may be measured with headspace gas chromatography for those volatile residual organic solvents according to the USP chapter 467 method. Method USP 467 classifies residual solvents into three classes according to toxicity; class 1 solvents are to be avoided unless there is strong justification, class 2 solvents are those that should be limited due to toxicity concerns.

    Cannabinoid Monitoring in Dried Cannabis Flowers

    This application describes an analytical method for the chromatographic separation and quantitative monitoring of seven primary cannabinoids, including THC and THC-A, in cannabis extracts by HPLC with PDA detection. Naturally occurring cannabinoids, the main biologically active component of the cannabis plant, form a complex group of closely related compounds, of which 113 are known and 70 are well described. Of these, the primary focus has been on ?9-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), as the primary active ingredient due to its pharmacological and toxicological characteristics, upon which strict legal limits have been enforced.

    Analysis of Volatile Organic Compounds in Air by Online TD-GC

    Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) have been identified as a major source of air pollution, and as such, have been regulated as a cause of both primary and secondary pollution, such as photochemistry smog. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) regulates 189 hazardous air pollutants under the Clean Air Act (CAA) of 1990, 51% of which are VOCs. The CAA offers further regulation and guidance for the monitoring of VOCs and ozone pollution in ambient air with a list of 57 ozone-precursor target analytes monitored under U.S. EPA’s Technical Assistance Document for Sampling and Analysis of Ozone Precursors, EPA/600-R-98/161 (1998)1, as well as the requirement of states to establish Photochemical Assessment Monitoring Stations (PAMS). This paper details an application for VOC monitoring with an extended target compound list utilizing a PerkinElmer TurboMatrix 300 TD and PerkinElmer Clarus® 580 GC. The application note demonstrates results with good repeatability, linearity and detection limits.

    Determination of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in Wallpapers Using ATD-GCMS

    Wallpaper is widely used throughout the world as an interior design choice that offers bright colors, rich designs and durability, all at an affordable price. Vinyl wallpaper has emerged as an especially durable choice over paper and non-woven varieties of wallpaper, however, its manufacturing poses many environmental concerns. When manufacturing wallpaper, a large amount of organic solvent is utilized in the treatment and printing processes. As a result, high levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can be present in the product, which pose an inhalation risk to humans. To identify potential levels of VOCs in wallpaper samples, a method was undertaken, targeting 35 volatile organic compounds using a PerkinElmer TurboMatrix™ 650 ATD and PerkinElmer Clarus® SQ8 GC/MS, with results and methodology introduced in this study.

    Analysis of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) in Air Using US EPA Method TO-17

    Optimized methods are needed for the analysis of toxic compounds in air to understand the impact to human health. People breathe approximately 20,000 liters of air a day so this concern is significant. EPA Method TO-17 is used to determine toxic compounds in air after they have been collected onto sorbent tubes. This application note demonstrates that the PerkinElmer TurboMatrix™ Thermal Desorber and the PerkinElmer Clarus® SQ 8 GC/MS will meet and exceed the criteria set forth in EPA method TO-17. Detailed instrument method parameters are presented, with precision, recovery, linearity and detection limit results.
