Inc., a global leader focused on the health and safety of people and
the environment, will showcase two new hyphenated thermal analysis
solutions at the Materials
Research Society Meeting that are designed for the accurate
characterization and analysis of inorganic materials, polymers,
geological materials and oils. The TL-9000
Thermal Analyzer (STA) 8000 will be debuted at PerkinElmer booth
1100 from November 25- 30, 2012 in Boston.
The TL-9000 offers an innovative accessory that enables hyphenation which facilitates the collection of evolved gases from a thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) or STA and then transfers sequentially to both a Fourier Trnsform Infrared Spectrometer (FTIR) and Mass Spectrometer (MS) or Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometer (GCMS).

offers an innovative accessory that enables hyphenation which
facilitates the collection of evolved gases from a thermogravimetric
analysis (TGA) or STA and then transfers sequentially to both a Fourier
Transform Infrared Spectrometer (FTIR) and Mass Spectrometer (MS) or Gas
Chromatography/Mass Spectrometer (GCMS). The testing capability of this
solution is unique in that it combines the power of thermal analysis
with the specificity of separation and the sensitivity of detection
available in spectroscopic and chromatographic methods. The capability
of hyphenating the TGA or STA to an FTIR, MS, or GCMS, provides
scientists the ability to identify and study low levels of materials in
highly complex matrices such as oil contamination in soil, and trace
impurities in foods and leachable materials from pharmaceutical
packaging not previously possible.
Controlled by PerkinElmer's Pyris™ software, the new Simultaneous
Thermal Analyzer (STA) 8000 is a compact and rugged instrument that
delivers high performance thermal analysis and is used for compositional
analysis and kinetic studies. It enables high temperature thermal
analysis up to 1600° C, enabling the study of transitions in materials
as well as calibration with palladium standards for fuel cell, ceramics,
catalysis applications, coal and challenging academic research.
"For more than 50 years, PerkinElmer has been at the forefront of highly
precise and exceedingly sensitive thermal analysis," said Dusty Tenney,
president, Environmental, PerkinElmer. "Both the STA 8000 and the
TL-9000 offer increased specificity for enhanced materials
characterization. This specificity is essential for researchers in key
application areas to meet regulations across a variety of segments,
including environmental, food, consumer product and pharmaceutical
