Waters Corporation Introduces the New ACQUITY Arc System

Waters Corporation announced that it has introduced the Waters ACQUITY Arc System, a quaternary liquid chromatograph that gives analytical laboratories running established LC methods a clear choice for replicating or improving their separations performance. With this new addition to the ACQUITY product line, the new ACQUITY Arc System is specifically engineered to respond to the needs of analytical scientists for a single LC platform that can enable them to efficiently transfer, adjust or improve their methods regardless of the LC platform on which they were developed. Waters intends to begin shipping the ACQUITY Arc system to customers at the end of June 2015. Waters ACQUITYArc System is a quaternary liquid chromatograph and a new addition to the ACQUITY product line. The new ACQUITY Arc System is specifically engineered to respond to the needs of analytical scientists for a single LC platform that can enable them to efficiently transfer, adjust or improve their analytical methods regardless of the LC platform on which they were developed. In addition to replicating established HPLC assays without altering the gradient table, the ACQUITY Arc System can enable improved chromatographic performance of methods by leveraging 2.5 - 2.7 micron particle column technologies, as well as support previously developed applications on 3 - 5 micron HPLC columns. Waters is offering a full complement of LC detectors for the ACQUITY Arc System, including photodiode array, UV/Vis, fluorescence, refractive index and evaporative light scattering. The system is also fully compatible with Waters mass detector, the ACQUITY QDa. In addition, the ACQUITY Arc System features novel Auto-Blend Plus Technology that enables the operator to program directly % organic and % pH gradients to significantly reduce human error and the manual labor associated with preparing buffered mobile phases. The ACQUITY Arc System is controlled through Waters informatics packages of Empower 2 or Empower 3 software.

Agilent Technologies Inc. and Waters Corporation Formalize Instrument Control Exchange

Agilent Technologies Inc. and Waters Corp. announced a formal agreement to exchange instrument controls to improve the productivity of customers who own software and instruments from both companies. The new agreement replaces earlier provisions under which Agilent implemented control of Waters instruments in the Agilent OpenLAB chromatography data system and Waters implemented control of Agilent liquid chromatography instruments in Waters Empower Software. The newly signed agreement defines terms and conditions on how the companies will exchange instrument control documentation and driver software and how they will provide developer and technical support to one another. It also spells out the escalation mechanisms for resolving technical issues for their mutual customers.
