Stocks in this article: WAT

Highlighting Waters technology introductions is Waters ® ACQUITY ® Advanced Polymer Chromatography™ (APC™) System, a system that defines a new category of chromatographic polymer analysis, yielding improved molecular weight information about polymeric species, faster than ever before.

Waters also announced it is expanding its laboratory informatics offerings, with the addition of Paradigm™ Scientific Search Software, a powerful information access platform. It takes search far beyond basic keywords by enabling users to perform object-based searches across both structured and unstructured data and across different data platforms.

In addition, Waters added Quality Control Reference Materials (QCRMs) and Certified Containers to the Analytical Standards and Reagents product group that was launched at last year's Pittcon.

"Pittcon has always been the best venue for us to unveil our latest technologies and share our vision for tomorrow. Today's product launches, particularly the ACQUITY Advanced Polymer Chromatography System, highlights how Waters' focused approach to driving innovation is improving laboratory capabilities and ensuring that our customers will be successful," said Art Caputo, President of Waters Division.

Waters Re-Ignites Innovation in the Chemical Materials Market with ACQUITY APC

Today, Waters ushered in the next era in polymer discovery with the introduction of the ACQUITY APC System. The system, which was developed in collaboration with The Dow Chemical Company, delivers dramatically improved polymer peak resolution, particularly for low molecular weight polymers and oligomers up to 20 times faster than traditional gel permeation chromatography (GPC).

The ACQUITY Advanced Polymer Chromatography (APC) System is comprised of an innovative, refractive index detector that has been optimized for low dispersion but with the low noise and drift performance required for accurate integration, even at low polymer concentrations.
