Waters Introduces the Xevo QTof Mass Spectrometer
Product News Jan 13, 2009
Waters Corporation has introduced its Waters® Xevo™ quadrupole time-of-flight (QTof) mass spectrometer (MS), an exact mass MS/MS benchtop instrument.
Aimed at transforming every stage of the analytical laboratory workflow, Xevo mass spectrometers are designed around the philosophy of Engineered Simplicity™ which combines instrument performance with simplicity of operation to enable scientists to convert data into business-critical knowledge faster.
“Businesses and independent labs demand that mass spectrometry obtain clear answers to complex problems and that instruments can be operated by a wide range of scientists,” said Brian Smith, Vice President, Mass Spectrometry Operations for the Waters Division. “Whilst the Xevo QTof offers an unparalleled combination of performance characteristics, it is the simplicity engineered into the Xevo QTof that challenges the notion that exact mass MS/MS has to be complex to deliver meaningful results.”
Paired with Waters ACQUITY® UltraPerformance Liquid Chromatography (UPLC®), the Xevo QTof MS, according to Waters, is the only commercially-available MS system to give scientists one-of-a-kind UPLC/MSE performance.
