Analyzing environmental pollutants can be challenging. With ever-changing regulations, emerging contaminants, analyzing challenging matrices, and increasingly stricter regulations limits, your laboratory testing capabilities must be agile. Well-established testing labs, start-up operations, governmental agencies, and compliance organizations are tasked with:

  • Maximizing throughput with optimal uptime
  • Maintaining compliance
  • Bringing instrumentation online quickly
  • Optimizing utilization

Our turnkey solutions – from analytical instrumentation, Consumables to Informatics to our unique OneSource service and support – help you meet new and evolving regulatory rules with stricter demands. Working with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and agencies in the European Union, China, and elsewhere, we’ve developed methods and monitored protocols for existing and emerging contaminants. Our technology and expertise help enable faster identification of harmful contaminants at a lower cost and with higher accuracy.

Innovation in Drinking Water

When water is a limited resource, ingenuity is essential. The highly regarded Orange County Water District (OCWD) is no stranger to being innovative to help sustainability in their community. OCWD takes the wastewater from the Orange County Sanitation District next door and treats it to drinking water standards. In fact, with the help of a PerkinElmer NexION® 2000 ICP-MS they test for 500 compounds, well beyond the required amount, and participates as one of the only certified public laboratories in the Unregulated Contaminant Monitoring Rule (UCMR) program.

Melissa Hill, Supervising Chemist at OCWD, shares her insights on the innovative drinking water resource management and treatment work occurring at OCWD and how the PerkinElmer team helps deliver clean drinking water to Orange County.

Water Analysis

PerkinElmer offers the most reliable technologies to detect low concentrations of contaminants in water. We bring you the systems with the stability to handle the diversity of water testing to help you overcome interferences of dirty matrices and detection limits required for water analyses while still responding quickly to time-sensitive samples. No matter how diverse or difficult your matrices, we’re the vital resource more labs count on.
