PerkinElmer took part as an exhibitor in the Newborn Screening and Genetic Testing Symposium, held 10–13 September in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA. The symposium, sponsored by the Association of Public Health Laboratories, is a major global event for companies, organizations and advocacy groups involved with newborn screening.

We took the chance to showcase our new tandem mass spectrometry (MSMS) solutions designed to provide high throughput routine quantitation to laboratories.
