PerkinElmer and TeakOrigin to offer new food analysis solutions

7th December 2017

PerkinElmer has announced a new collaboration with TeakOrigin, a developer of integrated technology and data platforms for the analysis of food authenticity and quality.

The companies are planning to create new technology that uses a single platform to analyse a number of food types for key indicators that determine authenticity, quality and freshness, leveraging molecular spectroscopy, ultraviolet-visible, mid/near infrared and Raman spectroscopy techniques.

PerkinElmer will contribute its cutting-edge molecular spectroscopy instrumentation and combine it with TeakOrigin's expertise in analytical chemistry, allowing them to create a solution that delivers fast, low-cost results, while remaining non-destructive to the food being tested. 

Initial research will take place at PerkinElmer's laboratory at its Waltham, Massachusetts headquarters, with pilot testing focusing on olive oil, honey and apples, ahead of plans to extend the analysis to many other foods.

Jim Corbett, executive vice-president and president for discovery and analytical solutions at
PerkinElmer, said: "Working with TeakOrigin, we look forward to addressing key underlying issues in the food system, leading to better and healthier food decisions for grocery retailers and consumers."
