Product News Aug 13, 2013
Waters Corporation has unveiled its new web-based Oasis® Method Development Tools designed to help customers reduce their sample preparation method development time as part of Waters Simple Prep™ campaign.
Based on the customers’ sample requirements, the Oasis Method Development Tools will recommend the optimized solid-phase extraction (SPE) protocol to develop robust methods with high recovery for liquid chromatography and mass spectrometry applications.
Oasis is the most widely used SPE sample preparation brand, used for a wide range of applications, including bioanalysis, clinical, food, and environmental,” said Michael Yelle, Vice President, Consumable Business Unit, for the Waters Division.
Yelle continued, “Developed in collaboration with Oasis customers, the New Oasis Method Development Tools significantly simplify the process of developing robust SPE methods. The tools help scientists to better understand the chemistry behind the SPE products so they can reduce sample preparation method development time to minutes, compared to the traditional hours and days.
The new Oasis Tool features basic and advanced capabilities. The Micro Sample Volume Tool optimizes the right sorbent and protocol for sample volumes from 25 to 300 µL, eliminating the evaporation and reconstitution steps and concentrating users compound of interest by 15x.
While the Maximum Selectivity Tool recommends ion-exchange and reversed-phase methods for aggressive sample cleanup in complex matrices.
The General Purpose Tool is ideal for screening across a broad range of compounds and molecules.
