Waters Corporation Brings Novel Separations and Ionization Technologies to High Resolution Mass Spectrometry at ASMS

Waters Corporation announced the introduction of new technologies and innovations for mass spectrometry, intended to give laboratories greater levels of detail for every analysis. The introductions include the new Waters® Vion IMS QTof Mass Spectrometer, a new bench-top tandem mass spectrometer featuring ion mobility and REIMS Research System with iKnife Sampling, combining direct-from-sample ionization with high-performance time-of-flight (ToF) mass spectrometry. Waters also expanded its family of solid phase extraction products with the first-of-its-kind Oasis PRiME HLB and added to its portfolio of protein separation columns with the ACQUITY UPLC® Glycoprotein BEH Amide Column for glycan analysis. Combining the benefits of high-resolution tandem mass spectrometry and ion mobility separation in a bench top instrument, the Waters® Vion IMS QTof Mass Spectrometer brings clarity and confidence to routine analyses. Ion mobility removes spectral interferences and generates collision cross-section (CCS) values for every ion, giving scientists more information than they can get from traditional LC-MS experiments. Waters intends to commence shipments of the Vion IMS QTof Mass Spectrometer in the second half of 2015. As routine analyses involve increasingly complex samples, scientists often rely on high-resolution mass spectrometry. However, increasing mass resolution alone does not always lead to better answers. By separating ions from one another based on their shape, mass and charge, ion mobility provides an additional dimension of separation. The selectivity of ion mobility refines spectra and allows the instrument to discriminate sample ions from chromatographically co-eluting compounds and background interferences - bringing clarity to every spectrum, and enabling the confident characterization of compounds. The UNIFI® Scientific Information System, Version 1.8, is a new release of the software with features intended to enhance laboratory productivity. Today's announcement coincides with the introduction of the Vion™ IMS QTof Mass Spectrometer which is the first Waters mass spectrometer to be fully supported on UNIFI. New features of this release of UNIFI software include: Support of the Vion IMS QTof MS System; native atmospheric pressure gas chromatography (APGC) control, time-of-flight (Tof) multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) support, support of collision cross section (CCS) data, and Tof quantitative and qualitative workflows providing a comprehensive, single software solution. Combining direct-from-sample ionization with high performance time-of-flight mass spectrometry and powerful, intuitive analytics, the Rapid Evaporative Ionization Mass Spectrometry™ (REIMS™) Research System with iKnife™ Sampling System eliminates the need for sample preparation and chromatographic separation, providing food, microbiology and tissue researchers with near-instantaneous data acquisition. Using Waters REIMS Research System with iKnife Sampling, researchers can quickly and easily differentiate samples from one another and confidently identify the differentiating features, allowing greater insight into the chemical and biological systems under investigation. In REIMS, direct, rapid heating of the samples leads to the formation of vapor that is rich in sample-specific chemical information. The vapor is taken directly into the mass spectrometer (Xevo® G2-XS QTof or SYNAPT® G2-Si HDMS) where the molecules are analyzed by time-of-flight mass spectrometry.

Waters Corporation Announces ERA Introduces New eDATA 2.0 Proficiency Testing Portal

Waters Corporation has announced that ERA, a Waters business, has introduced the new eDATA 2.0 proficiency testing, or PT, portal for environmental laboratories. The portal features new statistical analysis, data visualization and reporting tools that give environmental lab managers the ability to track results over time, flag potential issues and take preventive steps before corrective action becomes necessary.
