In May of this year, Waters expanded the CORTECS family of columns with the introduction of a new line of 2.7 micron particle columns. Designed for analytical scientists who need to maximize performance on their existing LC systems, CORTECS 2.7 micron Columns operate at HPLC-optimized pressures while delivering high efficiencies, giving scientists the flexibility to use longer column lengths to improve resolution and higher flow rates to speed method analysis times. The CORTECS 2.7 micron columns are also scaleable to CORTECS 1.6 micron columns enabling scientists to future proof their methods while optimizing the performance their existing HPLC instruments.Since the R&D 100 award competition began, Waters has won eight R&D 100 awards, most recently for its Oasis ® 96-Well (micro) Elution Extraction Plate, XTERRA ® Columns, ACQUITY ® UPLC System and the ACQUITY UPC 2® System.
