PerkinElmer Launches New Gas Chromatography Line

Clarus 500 GC Redefines "Ease of Use" with Industry's Most Intuitive User Interface; New GC/MS is World's Fastest Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer

SHELTON, Conn. - PerkinElmer Instruments today announced the release of its new Clarus(TM) 500 Gas Chromatograph (GC) and Gas Chromatograph/Mass Spectrometer (GC/MS), offering a revolutionary approach to GC instrument control. An intuitive touch screen features real-time signal display and supports seven languages. The proven reliability of PerkinElmer's GCs delivers superior performance in both research and quality control environments.

"This innovative Clarus system was designed with the customer's current and evolving needs in mind," said Stephen P. DeFalco, president of PerkinElmer Instruments. "It allows users to interact with a GC in a much more intuitive way, reducing the learning curve, speeding routine interaction, and providing lower cost per analysis."

Unique features, such as a fast rotating autosampler tower, a PreVent(TM) pressure control system, and easy serviceability, enable the Clarus systems to deliver maximum GC productivity. Available in customizable configurations ranging from dedicated analyzers for petrochemical applications to powerful mass spectrometer units for environmental and forensics applications, the sleek Clarus 500 GC is extremely flexible.

For applications requiring mass spectrometer detection, the Clarus 500 GC can be coupled to the new Clarus 500 MS, the industry's fastest scanning and widest mass range quadrupole mass spectrometer, allowing users a greater scope of applications.

The Clarus 500 GC/MS features a wealth of innovative technology to provide the most complete characterization of samples. PerkinElmer's Selected Ion and Full Ion (SIFI) scanning technology and high scan speed increase system throughput and accuracy. The instrument also includes proven gold component technology for enhanced performance. State-of-the-art electronics process more scans across each peak, resulting in unmatched accuracy and precision and better overall spectral fidelity.

The PerkinElmer headspace and thermal desorption sample handling devices can also be integrated into the Clarus systems, providing a single vendor solution for applications such as beverage analysis, ambient air testing, environmental work, and more. For data management and reporting, PerkinElmer's award-winning data handling software makes managing data easier than ever. PerkinElmer also backs all its products with factory- trained field support in more than 129 countries worldwide.
