Waters PATROL UPLC Receives Product Innovation Leadership Award from Frost & Sullivan
News Nov 17, 2014
Waters Corporation has received the 2014 Product Innovation Award for PATROL UPLC® Process Analysis System from Frost & Sullivan in the Global Process Liquid Chromatography market.
Since it was first introduced in 2004, ACQUITY UltraPerformance Liquid Chromatography® (UPLC®) pioneered a new category of chromatographic performance with the commercialization of sub-2-μm (micron) particle columns engineered in tandem with advanced instrumentation and fluidics modules to deliver superior performance at higher pressures. In 2010, Waters expanded the scope of its UPLC technology to process environments by launching the PATROL UPLC Process Analysis System based on ACQUITY UPLC Technology.
Janani Balasundar, industry analyst at Frost & Sullivan, noted, "With a perfect mix of technological expertise and extensive market experience, Waters has helped its customers reap an abundance of benefits by optimizing process operations with strict conformity to existing regulatory standards. The PATROL UPLC Process Analysis System is most often used in applications in research and development, quality control, and process engineering."
Balasundar continues, saying, PATROL UPLC combines "a unique blend of functionally rich attributes, which includes speed of analysis, ability to generate calibration curves for quantitation of different analytes, and availability of an automated barcode reader; this distinguishes Waters Corporation’s systems in the market."
“On behalf of the employees of Waters, we are honored to receive this recognition from such a respected organization like Frost & Sullivan,” said Rohit Khanna, Vice President of Worldwide Marketing and Informatics for the Waters Division. “The PATROL UPLC Process Analysis System provides our customers, for the first time, the combination of automation and UPLC together for direct online connection to their processes with real-time UPLC analysis.”
