Waters Corporation (NYSE:WAT) today introduced two new Xevo ® mass spectrometers and expanded the ionKey/MS System at the 62 nd conference of the American Society of Mass Spectrometry (ASMS). The Waters® Xevo G2-XS mass spectrometer, a new high performance benchtop quadrupole time-of-flight (QTof TM) mass spectrometer, and the Xevo TQ-S micro, a new and compact benchtop tandem quadrupole mass spectrometer, take benchtop quantitative and qualitative applications to new levels.

Waters also announced the expansion of the ionKey/MS™ System to the SYNAPT ® G2-S, SYNAPT G2-S i, Xevo G2-S QTof and the newly-introduced Xevo G2-XS QTof micro mass spectrometer with new UPLC ® grade iKey TM chemistries.
Additionally, Waters unveiled Progenesis® QI for proteomics Version 2.0, the latest advance in proteomics data analysis software, availability of Omics LLC’s PetroOrg Petroleomics Software on the SYNAPT G2-Si for chemical composition characterization of petroleum and the exclusive rights to Prosolia's DESI (Desorption Electrospray Ionization) technology for clinical research applications for use with Waters' time-of-flight mass spectrometers.
Xevo G2-XS QTof Mass SpectrometerFeaturing the new XS Collision Cell, the Xevo ® G2-XS mass spectrometer stands alone among its peers in offering uncompromised analytical sensitivity and selectivity in a benchtop QTof mass spectrometer. Shipment of Xevo G2-XS QTof to customer laboratories is expected to begin at the end of the second quarter with MassLynx® software and in the fourth quarter under the UNIFI ® Scientific Information System. “The technology embodied in the Xevo G2-XS benefits laboratory analysis in a number of ways. Most importantly, laboratories now have a dependable option for performing qualitative and quantitative experiments for both known and unknown analytes with a benchtop QTof instrument,” said Brian Smith, Vice President – Mass Spectrometry Operations, Waters Division.
