Waters improves analytical technology with new product

Related tags High performance liquid chromatography

US company Waters Corporation will this week unveil its
next-generation liquid chromatograph, said to significantly improve
productivity in the lab by giving scientists chromatographic run
times up to nine times shorter than the fastest current HPLC

The company will start shipping the product, being launched at the lab science exhibition Pittcon, currently running in Chicago, Illinois, in the second quarter of this year.

The ACQUITY Ultra Performance LC System​ uses novel sub two-micron particles to speed up chromatographic run times and double peak capacity or resolution. It offers 'more information from a single run than anything today's HPLC systems can provide', claims the firm.

The product has a new, patented 1.7 micron hybrid particle chemistry matched with instrumentation hardware and software, which offers an advantage over HPLC systems equipped with standard five-micron particle chemistries.

Waters has also created a pressure-tolerant reversed-phase particle in the column to allow improvements to speed, sensitivity, and resolution of UPLC.This advanced packing material is a new second-generation of patented hybrid particle - particles that are made with both inorganic and organic elements - that improves efficiency, ruggedness, and peak shape.

UPLC separations can only occur if these novel particles are synthesized within a narrow particle size distribution. Waters has developed new sizing technologies that produce production-scale quantities of particles with an extremely tight particle size distribution.

Each ACQUITY UPLC Column also features an eCord that not only records the number of injections, observed back pressures and temperature of the column, but contains the column's unique Certificate of Analysis from its manufacturing and QC history, guaranteeing required traceability.
