Framingham, MA and Milford, MA — SCIEX a global leader in life science analytical technologies, announced an agreement with Waters Corporation to offer customers fully configured and interoperable Waters™ Ultra-Performance Liquid Chromatography (UPLC™) instruments as part of their purchase and deployment of SCIEX mass spectrometry (MS) systems.
The collaboration makes it easier for customers to choose the most suitable tools to address their analytical needs for both large and small molecules. Waters UPLC instruments feature low dispersion capabilities that can deliver increased MS sensitivity when low level analyte detection and quantification is required.
“We strive to provide the best products and services, and live by the mantra, ‘when customers talk, we listen,’” said Dom Gostick, Vice President & GM LCMS and CTO, at SCIEX. “Through this collaboration, we are broadening the variety of LC instruments available to our growing customer base.”
SCIEX and Waters developed instrument control drivers that have been fully tested to ensure compatibility and compliance. These proven drivers allow SCIEX OS software to directly control Waters ACQUITY™ UPLC I-Class PLUS Systems, as well as the H-Class PLUS, H-Class PLUS Bio and M-Class instruments. Customers will also benefit from the commitment of both vendors to deliver coordinated service and class-leading analytical performance. SCIEX will support the full customer relationship while Waters will provide direct UPLC service and support.
“Scientists will immediately benefit from ease of access to industry-leading UPLC systems,” said Jon Pratt, Senior Vice President, Waters Division. “This agreement provides for a smooth, integrated experience for customers with the coordinated support of Waters’ expertise and service."
