Located in the laboratory building of Beijing Zhendong Guangming Drug Research Institute, the new facility is over 400m2.

Waters Corporation  announce an agreement with the Chinese Pharmacopoeia Commission (ChP) to establish a Joint Open Laboratory. 

Scheduled to open before the end of 2014, the new Joint Open Laboratory will focus on in-depth research of pharmacopoeia standards, development of testing methods, methods validations and basic and advanced technical training of pharmacopoeia detection methods. Both the ChP and Waters® expect the laboratory to become one of the national technical support centers in the field of Chinese pharmaceutical standards.

"Waters is very excited about our new collaboration with the Chinese Pharmacopeia Commission," said Art Caputo, President of the Waters Division. "I am confident that this new Joint Open Laboratory will make positive contributions to assuring drug quality control in China, it will quickly become an international leader in the field of traditional Chinese pharmaceutical standards."

At the collaboration agreement signing ceremony in Beijing, Secretary General Zhang Wei of the ChP pointed out that "the ChP-Waters Joint Open Laboratory cooperation would become another milestone of the development of the ChP. This cooperation not only meets the needs of ChP’s own development, but also meets the demands of enhanced pharmacopoeia standards and improved public drug safety."

The laboratory will be outfitted with a full complement of Waters chromatography and mass spectrometry technologies, including (but not limited to) a range of ACQUITY UPLC® systems, ACQUITY UPC2® System, Xevo® tandem quadrupole and time-of-flight mass spectrometers, and a Natural Products Application Solution with UNIFI®.
