Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc., Minneapolis, introduced new products, software and services for food safety, environmental quality and industrial applications.

For testing food and animal feeds, a new dioxin analyzer workflow, which incorporates the Thermo Scientific Triple Quadrupole TSQ 9000 GC-MS/MS system, enables detection of dioxins and "dioxin-like" polychlorinated biphenyls at lower levels now required by European Union regulations.

To monitor drinking water accessibility and meet the requirements of U.S. EPA method 557, new Thermo Scientific columns enable rapid separations of contaminants prior to analysis using ion chromatography-mass spectrometry (IC-MS).

For food safety and environmental scientists performing regulatory-compliant volatile organic compound (VOC) analysis, the new Thermo Scientific TriPlus 500 Gas Chromatography Headspace Autosampler provides a scalable, compact design capable of handling samples at high throughput.

For busy quality assurance and quality control laboratories performing frequent materials characterization, the Thermo Scientific Nicolet Summit FTIR, which features new hardware and software, accelerates analysis times and provides real-time feedback on sample quality for an improved user experience.
