PHILADELPHIA and SHELTON, Conn., May 30 -- PerkinElmer Instruments has donated an extensive collection of historic analytical instruments to the Chemical Heritage Foundation (CHF), to be exhibited in the CHF's soon-to-be-constructed Eddleman Research Museum.
Including CHF's current holdings, the collection of more than 300 analytical instruments will be the largest and most comprehensive of its kind, CHF said.
"With the addition of the PerkinElmer Collection, we will bring together many of the instruments that made the scientific advances of the 20th century possible," said Arnold Thackray, president of CHF.
CHF will display selected instruments from the collection at its 20th anniversary event June 28 in Philadelphia. CHF said it will add instruments from the PerkinElmer Collection to its traveling exhibits, making these unique scientific tools available to a wide audience of educators and researchers.
