PerkinElmer Collaborates with Rigaku to Enhance Elemental Analysis Offerings

PerkinElmer and Rigaku Americas' co-marketing agreement allows both companies to share information and provide customers with a single point of contact for PerkinElmers atomic spectroscopy solutions.


PerkinElmer, Inc. has announced a co-marketing agreement with Rigaku Americas. The co-marketing relationship allows both companies to share information and provide customers with a single point of contact for PerkinElmer’s atomic spectroscopy solutions, including atomic absorption spectrometers (AAS), inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometers (ICP-OES) and inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometers (ICP-MS), as well as Rigaku Americas’ bench-top suite of x-ray fluorescence (XRF) instruments.   
Both companies’ product offerings integrate well in several key market segments. The geochemical market regularly uses atomic spectroscopy and XRF for the determination of elements in minerals and soils for exploration, as well as quality, control of finished or semi-finished goods. The forensic market depends on both techniques for quantitative measurements and uses XRF because it can be non-destructive.  The base metals and alloys require both product lines for the quantification of metal content in metallurgical research and product quality control.
"Our relationship with Rigaku is a wonderful opportunity to provide analytical laboratories with a single source for information on atomic spectroscopy and XRF instrumentation," said Ian Shuttler, Ph.D., vice president, Inorganic Business Unit, Analytical Sciences, PerkinElmer. "We look forward to combining our resources with Rigaku.  Together, we will enhance the customer experience and provide new solutions that meet the evolving requirements in elemental analysis laboratories."
"Collaboration with PerkinElmer allows us to achieve closer and sustainable relationships with new customers as we will be able to better provide superior and timely solutions for their analytical needs," said Wes Hardenburg, CEO of Rigaku Americas Corporation. "Jointly, we can establish an infrastructure that enables a more profound understanding of market trends, so that we may anticipate instrumentation and application requirements and be first to market with complete solutions."
