Waters Brings Awarding-Winning UltraPerformance Convergence Chromatography To Analytica 2012

MUNICH, April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Waters Corporation (NYSE: WAT) is exhibiting its award-winning ACQUITY UPC(2)  System for the first time in Europe at the 23rd Analytica International Trade Fair for Laboratory Technology. A Gold Sponsor of this year's Analytica, Waters® ACQUITY UPC(2) System was selected for the Pittcon Editor's Gold Award for Best New Product at Pittcon 2012 in March. The ACQUITY UPC(2) System is a new category of separations science instrumentation that gives laboratories previously unavailable options for tackling tough analytical challenges. The instrument is now available for worldwide customer shipment.

Also new to Analytica are Waters NuGenesis® 8 featuring LE (Laboratory Execution) Technologies, a comprehensive data management and workflow solution that more effectively connects organizations' analytical laboratory data systems to their business information technology systems, and a new line of analytical standards and reagents consisting of an initial portfolio of more than 200 pre-formulated reference materials and reagents for the scientific laboratory.

"The introductions we're bringing to Analytica reflect strong customer demand for greater problem-solving capability, greater efficiency, and certifiable data quality. UPC(2), NuGenesis 8 and our new line of analytical standards and reagents make this year's Analytica one of the most exciting in years for us," said Art Caputo, President, Waters Division.

An Industry-First UltraPerformance Convergence Chromatography System

Waters ACQUITY UPC(2) System expands the boundaries of reverse phase liquid chromatography (LC) and of gas chromatography (GC) separations and offers a replacement option for normal phase chromatography applications. Employing the principle of UltraPerformance Convergence Chromatography™, Waters ACQUITY UPC(2) System is a novel analytical system that gives laboratories an indispensable tool for tackling tough-to-analyze compounds including hydrophobic and chiral compounds, lipids, thermally-labile samples and polymers.

"With ACQUITY UPC(2) we applied our expertise in ultraperformance chromatography to the traditional technique of SFC and emerged with a more universal laboratory tool with much broader applications there's a huge need for this kind of separating power today," said Harbaksh Sidhu, Program Director, ACQUITY UPC(2) Program, Waters Division. "When we show customers what UPC(2) can do, you can just see the lightbulbs going off. They start to understand it's not a specialty tool – but a tool they can weave into their workflow on a routine basis,a tool that complements traditional LC and GC techniques and a tool that increases productivity and opens up worlds of possibilities. It's a huge leap forward in separations science."

Compressed carbon dioxide, the primary mobile phase for UPC(2), offers numerous major advantages over liquid mobile phases or carrier gases that are used with LC and GC. For one, carbon dioxide alone, or combined with a co-solvent, is a low viscosity mobile phase that achieves higher diffusion rates and enhanced mass transfer than liquids used in HPLC. For another, when compared to GC, carbon dioxide alone is a mobile phase that allows separations to occur at a much lower temperature.

Scientists can routinely separate compounds that are less amenable to analysis by LC and GC including molecules having a wide range of polarities.
