PerkinElmer Introduces New Gigahertz Photon Detection Module at Sensor + Test 2009

New Photon Detection Module Delivers Highest Dynamic Range and Very Low Noise for Demanding Fluorescence and Luminescence Applications

Today at Sensor + Test 2009, PerkinElmer, Inc., a global leader focused on improving the health and safety of people and the environment, announced the introduction of its new Gigahertz Photon Detection Module (GPDM) for Analytical and clinical diagnostic applications under low light level conditions.

The new module, the latest addition to PerkinElmer's Channel Photomultiplier family, offers the world's highest dynamic counting range between 1 cps and 1 Gcps in a single operating mode, coupled with extremely low noise performance. As a result of the new Gigahertz module's high dynamic range and high signal to noise (S/N), OEMs can perform fluorescence and luminescence measurements with a single detection system.

"PerkinElmer is pleased to introduce at Sensor + Test 2009 our new Gigahertz Photon Detection Module," said Michael Ersoni, vice president and general manager of PerkinElmer global detection business. "We are focused on aggressively expanding our range of photon detection offerings for low light level analytical and clinical diagnostic applications that ultimately help to ensure longer, fuller lives."
