Waters Introduces New Arc High-Performance Liquid Chromatograph
Product News Jun 23, 2020
Waters Corporation has introduced the Waters™ Arc™ HPLC System, a new high-performance liquid chromatograph (HPLC) for routine testing in the pharmaceutical, food, academic and materials markets. A key target application is quality control laboratories performing batch release tests on small molecule pharmaceuticals.
The Arc HPLC System is for laboratories looking for a rugged, reliable and modern HPLC system that can run established HPLC methods regardless of the brand of liquid chromatograph on which they were originally developed, while preserving the chromatographic retention time reproducibility of those methods. The system offers ultra-low analyte carryover, injection precision and backpressure tolerance to 9,500 psi at 5.0 ml/min. It is designed to meet all the requirements of a top-of-the-line HPLC system in a cost-competitive package.
“We designed the Waters Arc HPLC System exclusively for QC laboratories knowing how important trustworthy test results are to help ensure the uninterrupted supply of safe and effective medicines,” said Robert Buco, PhD, Director, Separations Technology, Global Product Management, Waters Corporation. “Arc HPLC is for customers who are ready to modernize legacy instruments while preserving their specific QC methods. Waters makes it simple, providing a unique two-injection method transfer capability from any brand of HPLC instrument onto the Arc HPLC System.”
Most quality control methods in use today are HPLC methods. These methods have one common goal: to measure the concentration of any active ingredient and any known impurity and record the results of tests in compliance with regulatory and quality standards. As a state-of-the art workhorse instrument, this is what the Arc HPLC System routinely does.
The Arc HPLC runs on Waters’ compliant-ready, industry-leading Empower 3 Chromatography Data Software trusted by thousands of clients for whom data integrity is of paramount importance.
Waters expects the Arc HPLC System to be available for shipping worldwide in July.
