Researching Plastics in the Environment


Dr. Adam Porter of the University of Exeter has focused his research on understanding the fate of plastics in the environment. Using the Spotlight 400 FTIR System, his work is providing new insights on what happens to plastics when they spend time in the ocean. The Spotlight System offers the researchers a variety of analysis options, all within one system, which allows for efficient workflows within the laboratory and an understanding of microplastics in a detailed way. “Our collaboration with PerkinElmer really gives us confidence in our results” says Dr. Porter.
