Endocrine disrupting chemicals can mimic or interfere with hormones and can negatively affect human and animal health. These compounds, which include chemicals found in plastics, flame retardants, pesticides, household products, pharmaceuticals and industrial chemicals, are slow to degrade and can accumulate in the environment. Researchers investigating these chemicals, including Bisphenol A (BPA), dioxins, perchlorate, PFAS, pesticides, phthalates, and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB), often utilize LC/MS/MS analytical techniques for a variety of matrices including food, water, soil and air.
Environmental Scientists require solutions which provide sensitivity, repeatability and robustness while incorporating sample handling which accelerates processing times. PerkinElmer provides our customers with a portfolio of technologies to support their work studying endocrine disrupters. The QSight® LC/MS/MS provides accurate, reliability results while the SP50 Online SPE System incorporates stay-clean technologies which can handle complex matrices with less down time, translating to more instrument uptime and productivity.
