Company: PerkinElmer, Inc.

Equipment Snapshot: This highly sensitive analytical instrument is designed for rapid identification and quantitation of pesticides, mycotoxins and emerging contaminants in complex food, cannabis and environmental testing applications. For cannabis analysis, the high sensitivity of the QSight 400 Series supports laboratories in meeting state and federal regulations. PerkinElmer has developed a single LC/MS/MS method that meets pesticide and mycotoxin regulatory requirements—at levels well below state action limits, including in California. Preliminary studies in cannabis extracts and edibles also demonstrate the ability of the QSight 400 Series to meet new federal regulations in Canada, which set action limits nearly 10 times lower than California’s stringent list.
