Waters unveils new mass spectrometry solution

Waters : 04 June, 2008  (New Product)
Waters has unveiled several new mass spectrometry innovations at the 56th American Society for Mass Spectrometry Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics, including the Waters Xevo TQ MS System, an advanced tandem quadrupole mass spectrometer.
The instrument allows scientists with varying levels of mass spectrometry (MS) expertise to quickly produce the highest quality data with confidence.

In addition, Waters is previewing its new TRIZAIC UPLC System with nanoTile technology, a new UltraPerformance LC separations platform for both large- and small-molecule applications that will deliver information-rich, high-sensitivity analyses when coupled to Waters SYNAPT High Definition MS (HDMS) and SYNAPT MS Systems. Other products announced include the VERIFYE High Definition Proteomics System, the nanoACQUITY UPLCSystem with 2D Technology, and the Atmospheric Solids Analysis Probe (ASAP).

'Mass spectrometry is a vital analytical tool for a wide variety of applications,” said Art Caputo, executive vice president and president of the Waters Division. 'Waters is meeting customers' needs by bringing to market technology that allows laboratories to be more efficient and productive and makes high-performance capabilities available to scientists in various disciplines.'

The Xevo TQ MS System introduced is an advanced tandem quadrupole Mass spectrometer designed to deliver unrivalled performance and functionality. The system uses innovative IntelliStart and ScanWave technologies to deliver versatility and advanced quantitative capability to a broader range of scientists. IntelliStart is new technology that simplifies instrument setup and time-intensive troubleshooting. The system automatically ensures the system is ready for use by performing mass calibration, setting MS resolution, generating compound-specific MS methods (SIR or MRM) and optimising API source conditions for specific analytical conditions plus much more.

The Xevo TQ MS System operating under MassLynx Software is equipped with a unique collision cell that can be operated in conventional T-Wave-enabled mode or in a new ScanWave-enabled mode. The ScanWave is an innovative use of T-Wave collision cell technology that improves duty cycle and significantly enhances the full scan capability to meet the demands of today's complex analyses. This allows scientists to more easily confirm the identities and structures of targeted analytes.

At ASMS, Waters is previewing its new TRIZAIC UPLC System with nanoTile Technology. The first iteration of this innovation is the new TRIZAIC UPLC System with nanoTile Technology designed to deliver exceptional sensitivity for limited-sample, direct-flow, nanoscale protein separations. For use with Waters SYNAPT HDMS and SYNAPT MS Systems, it combines novel microfluidic separation technology with Waters sub-two-micron column chemistries, solvent delivery and comprehensive data management for both large- and small-molecule applications. TRIZAIC represents a highly-intelligent, integrated systems approach to separation science - fuelled by the company's UPLC technology.

'TRIZAIC is a way for us to take the complexity out of characterizing proteins using nanoscale chromatographic separations. This proprietary technology is directed at those scientists who are looking for the enhanced resolution that direct-nanoflow UPLC brings to protein characterisation, sensitivity and reproducibility,' said Dr Patricia Young, senior product marketing manager, Waters Division. 'We expect this platform will significantly streamline the process of reproducibly identifying and characterising proteins.'
