PerkinElmer acquired a line of dynamic mechanical analysis (DMA) tools from Triton Technology. The DMA instrument is used in the polymers, pharmaceuticals, and food industries for applications ranging from quality control to advanced research.
"This acquisition brings our customers a best-in-class thermal analysis tool that combines ease-of-use and flexibility with powerful performance," points out Robert F. Friel, president of PerkinElmer Life and Analytical Sciences. "The new DMA 8000 represents the type of novel, next-generation technology we are investing in to continually provide solutions to customers that enable them to advance the pace and precision of their research and testing."
Triton expects to use its freed-up resources to enhance the development of new technology for the QA/QC of polymeric materials, according to Glynn Van-de-Velde, director, Triton Technology.
