WALTHAM, Mass. -- June 10, 2013

At the 2013 American Society for Mass Spectrometry Conference, PerkinElmer
Inc., a global leader focused on the health and safety of people and the
environment, introduced the AxION iQT gas chromatography tandem mass
spectrometer (GC/MS/MS). The AxION iQT system provides greater quantitative
capabilities to that of a triple quadrupole, while quickly identifying
compounds like a quadrupole time-of-flight (Q-TOF) at a rate of up to 500
compounds per second. The new mass spectrometer provides laboratories with
easier to use technology, faster results, and more specific, selective data
needed to make more accurate decisions faster.

“Global regulatory expansion is driving increased adoption of mass
spectrometry as the technology provides greater sample insights for many
industries,” said Dusty Tenney, president of Environmental Health,
PerkinElmer. “We’ve created a new category of mass spectrometry designed to be
faster, smarter, modular and easy to operate and maintain that combines
superior quantitative and identification performance into one instrument,
making this latest generation of technology both user and budget friendly.”

The Axion iQT GC/MS/MS solution is intuitive, enabling technicians who are not
mass spectrometry trained to run their analyses easily and with confidence.
The AxION iQT system is the first MS/MS technology that delivers automated
method development tools to users, includes advanced application-centric
software and provides easy maintenance due to its smart modular system. These
unique features make the AxION iQT system a one-of- a-kind, easy to use MS/MS
instrument that enables analytical labs to deliver highly specific and
sensitive MS/MS results, quickly and for virtually any application.

The new system can thoroughly characterize and easily quantify compounds for a
variety of applications, including the analysis of pesticides in food samples
to ensure food safety and authenticity, quantitation of non-derivatized
steroids, cholesterol and therapeutic drug monitoring in research
applications, analysis of drugs in forensic toxicology, and thorough analysis
of chemical compositions.

At the ASMS conference PerkinElmer will also announce a new collaboration with
CTC Analytics to provide AxION Sample Manager, a complete sample preparation
and analysis solution. The AxION Sample Manager is built around the
industry-leading CTC PAL technology and can be integrated with the AxION iQT
for automated sample preparation with unprecedented precision and
