Waters has launched new range of chromatography solutions
Singapore: BioSupplier company, Waters, has launched Waters ACQUITY Arc System, a quaternary liquid chromatograph that gives analytical laboratories running established LC methods a clear choice for replicating or improving their separations performance.
With this new addition to the ACQUITY product line, the new ACQUITY Arc System is specifically engineered to respond to the needs of analytical scientists by delivering a single LC platform that can enable them to efficiently transfer, adjust or improve their methods regardless of the LC platform on which they were developed. Waters intends to begin shipping the ACQUITY Arc system to customers at the end of June.
To date, scientists working with established methods haven't had an LC platform versatile enough to bridge the gap between HPLC and UPLC. With the introduction of the ACQUITY Arc System, and its enabling Arc Multi-flow path technology, scientists now have the ability to emulate the gradient dwell volume and mixing behavior of various LC systems. By selecting the appropriate fluidic path, the ACQUITY Arc System can easily emulate a variety of HPLC systems without alteration to the method's gradient table or provide UHPLC performance with the flip of a switch.
"Since the beginning, each addition to the ACQUITY family has been designed to allow a broader range of scientists to benefit from this family of products without compromising what they do," said Mr Ian King, vice president of Separation Science, Waters Division. "ACQUITY Arc continues this tradition by providing scientists with technology that is adaptable and robust enough to bridge the HPLC and UPLC performance gap while continuing to support validated assays."
