New science opens doors for future innovation
At Rentokil Initial we pride ourselves on our ability to innovate to provide the best possible products and services for our customers.
Our world-leading business is built upon the knowledge and expertise of our colleagues and our ability to provide industry-leading products and services such as Lumnia, PestConnect, RADAR, Premium Scenting, and Rapid Hygiene.
Now, after purchasing a new cutting-edge Gas Chromatography and Mass Spectrometry (GCMS) machine, our scientists are better equipped than ever to perform pioneering scientific research – from the moment the machine was first turned on, the Analytical Services Team was able to analyse a new potential rat lure product and develop a new method to analyse samples to help with a moth-mating disruption trial!
“The fact that we have a machine such as this in-house rather than having to pay an outside supplier also means we can do more detailed work, quicker and much more cost effectively.”
Based at the Power Centre in Crawley, UK, Analytical Services Manager, Sharon Keay, said: “Our new GCMS machine allows us to identify atoms and molecules at low concentrations in solid, liquid, and gas samples. It enables us to make more scientific claims to build customer confidence, increases our innovation capability through faster analysis turnaround times, and it provides a host of other benefits to increase our competitive advantage and enhance the quality of products and services Rentokil Initial offers.
The fact that we have a machine such as this in-house rather than having to pay an outside supplier also means we can do more detailed work, quicker and much more cost effectively.”
Here are just some of the areas our new GCMS machine can support:
- Development of low-active ingredient formulations
- Study pheromones given off from insects or volatiles
- Study insecticides
- Test the effectiveness of termiticides (termite control chemicals)
- Air VOC, particulate, and odour testing
