We use the GERSTEL MultiPurpose Sampler, with its huge range of unique accessories, to automate the processing of your samples.

This gives seamless integration with Agilent Technologies’ GC and GC-MS platforms and Syft Technologies' SIFT-MS instruments.
If you are involved in analytical R&D, you just don’t know where your research will lead, or what you may have to do tomorrow.

For sample preparation, automation may well be important to you and you will certainly benefit from the great flexibility the GERSTEL MultiFlex MPS gives you.
AutoPrep solutions, based upon the GERSTEL MPS are built with three things in mind: dependability, throughput and low consumable costs.

All have been tested in our laboratory and come with unlimited application support.
SIFT-MS joins GC-MS and LC-MS as one of the three essential tools that every analytical chemist should have.

SIFT-MS measures the concentrations of volatile substances (organic and inorganic) simply, directly and in real time.
The CF200 Robotic Centrifuge is capable, compact and integrates full with the GERSTEL MultiPurpose Sampler.

The CF200 can process up to six samples simultaneously for maximum productivity.
Anatune knows the importance of excellent support.

From your perspective, anything that stops you from working efficiently is a problem.

We aim to have a fix - whatever is getting in your way!

Our applications team have years of experience gained by working in analytical laboratories of all types.

They know the instruments we sell inside out and will find sensible solutions to to the analytical challenges you face.

Customer Support Engineer

I joined Anatune in March 2008.

My main area of responsibility is providing service support, although my background as an analytical chemist enables me to offer application support and training, when needed.

I am very happy to be working with a great team.

I graduated in 1992 with a degree in Chemistry from the University of Surrey. After University I joined BICC Cables based in Wrexham undertaking Polymer analysis. After BICC Cables I joined TES Bretby as a Chemical Analyst covering VOC/SVOC analysis by GC and GCMS.

Ray Perkins

Chief Executive Officer

I formed Anatune in February 1996.

Chemistry underpins just about everything that matters and in chemistry, you can only make progress if you can measure things properly.

Much of what our customers need to measure is “only just possible”. Anatune provides not only the instrumentation needed, but also excellent support that enables our customers to push the limits of what chemistry can do for us all.

In this context, my job is to build, maintain and support a great team of professional chemists, engineers and business people.

It is my responsibility to ensure that Anatune has a clear business strategy, that everyone here understands what they have to do to make our plans happen and why this matters.

I have a strong commitment to the personal and professional development of everyone that works here.

I feel honoured that so many great people are willing work with me!

Applications Chemist

I gained my first degree from the University of Surrey and during more than ten years working for Unilever Research, I completed my PhD at the University of Loughborough entitled “Determination of trace contaminants in food”. My work focused upon alternative extraction techniques, in particular stir bar sorptive extraction to examine taints and off-flavours in foods.

Before joining Anatune, I worked as a technical specialist for RSSL in Reading.

I have published papers, contributed chapters to several books and written a review on the topic of off-flavours and taints in food. I have also been a long-term customer of Anatune and have used GERSTEL instrumentation extensively.

Jonathan Dunscombe

Applications Chemist

Starting my career, I gained a Chemistry Degree at University of Cardiff.  Taking a pause from the scientific pathway, I trained as a science teacher.  Shortly after, realising that an industrial setting was where I wanted to go, I took up position as a lab technician with Severn Trent Services.

It is with this company that I stayed for six years gaining experience in multiple techniques and analyses across multiple chemistry based disciplines.  I also managed a team for two years learning what it takes to manage a functioning team coping with high throughput and short turnaround times.

During this time I gained experience using different GERSTEL MPS equipment; notably a dual rail headspace system and dual head ITSP solution.  My strengths lay within the water industry and it is through this experience that I hope to add to the Anatune team.

I joined in January 2017 as an Applications Chemist.  Before this I had many dealings with the Anatune team; this is where I experienced first-hand how experienced and enthusiastic the team are.  Being able to work with people spanning multiple industries is very exciting which also expands your knowledge of other disciplines.

Sinead Calnan

I joined Anatune in March 2017 as an Administrative Assistant.

I have a Science Degree from the National University of Ireland, Galway, where I majored in Zoology, so I am very excited to be working in a scientific environment.

I have had a variety of jobs over the years including teaching English as a foreign language, bank teller, working in a music store, DJ and trainee Ecologist.  Before joining Anatune I worked at PLOS in Cambridge, which is a not-for-profit, open-access publisher of scientific journals.  I gained some great administrative experience there, and also rediscovered my passion for science.

I have also managed to fit in quite a bit of travel over the years (one of my other great passions!).  I have backpacked around South East Asia and Africa, and spent time living and working in the US, Canada, Spain and South Korea.  It is always a joy to explore new places and cultures and it’s lovely to be able to swop lots of travel stories with the great team here at Anatune.

I’m happy to bring my experience to a new role and I hope to gain more skills and knowledge along the way.

Jamie Minaeian

I joined Anatune in September 2017 as an Applications Chemist.

I completed my PhD in September 2016 in Atmospheric Chemistry at the University of York. I gained experience of GC/MS and thermal desorption, along with atmospheric measurements of VOCs.  During my PhD, I was frequently sent out across the world to investigate atmospheric composition, in locations such as the Arctic Circle, Guam and the Falkland Islands.

Following on from this, I spent six months in New Zealand, working for Syft Technologies in Christchurch. Here, I gained experience with several aspects of the instrument, as well as troubleshooting and diagnostics and look forward to bringing this experience to our customers.
