Keeping our food supply safe from farm to fork

We have the tools so you can know now.

Perkin Elmer understands the importance of keeping our food supply safe. Most standard procedures for monitoring the safety of the food supply involve collecting samples in the field, sending the samples to a laboratory and waiting days or longer to get results. By the time the analyses have been completed, valuable time and money have been lost. Our instruments allow analytical determinations to be made farther up the food supply chain than possible with laboratory-sized instruments. The Torion-T9 GC/MS is the world’s lightest and fastest GC/MS. The combination of the Torion T-9 with the CUSTODION sampling products allows you to collect and analyze samples all along the supply chain. This includes where the food is being grown, harvested, stored, transported or sold. In addition, Torion instrumentation provides lab quality results in minutes, not hours or days.  Torion can give you the following advantages for your food analyses:

  • Field-portable sampling and analysis for all food types
  • Fast sample collection and analysis: less than 10 minutes total time
  • Immediate results: no need to transport samples to lab and wait for days or weeks
  • Cost savings from immediate availability of time critical data on food acceptability

Safe, high quality beverages for your customers

Field analysis of raw materials or final product

Beverage production is in the billions of dollars annually around the globe. The quality and purity of these products is of utmost importance to producers and consumers. Large efforts are expended to analyze beverages of all kinds. Most standard procedures require samples to be collected and returned to the lab for analysis to be completed.

Our portable GC/MS instruments have been designed to minimize the number of samples that need to be collected and returned to the lab. All of our instruments have been designed to be person-portable and can be operated anywhere samples need to be collected. Whether you want to analyze raw materials or the final product, the Torion-T9 GC/MS can provide fast and efficient analyses to ensure your beverage products meet the required standards.

Key advantages for your beverage analyses:

  • Field-portable sampling and analysis for all beverage types
  • Fast sample collection and analysis: less than 10 minutes total time
  • Immediate results: no need to transport samples to lab and wait for days or weeks
  • Cost savings from immediate availability of time critical data on food acceptability
