Waters Showcase High Definition Mass Spectrometry System
Product News Mar 01, 2007
At Pittcon 2007, the Waters Corporation has announced the launch of a first-of- its-kind mass spectrometry system, the Synapt™ High Definition MS™ (HDMS) System, and a benchtop, ultra-compact, tandem-quadrupole, atmospheric pressure ionization mass detector called the Waters TQ Detector used in conjunction with Waters® ACQUITY™ UPLC® System.
The Synapt HDMS™ system employs new ion mobility technology and software to enable the analysis of sample ions differentiated by size, charge, shape and mass. This additional dimension of separations fidelity leads to improved specificity and sample definition, allowing scientists to extract more information about their samples, including the detection of previously unseen constituents.
A key feature of this new system is the patented Waters Triwave™ technology, a method for combining ion mobility based measurement and separations with high performance quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry. Operational control and data acquisition and processing are performed through Waters MassLynx™ Software.
Waters also showcased its tandem UPLC/MS/MS system solution, the ACQUITY TQD, allowing chromatographers to easily acquire UPLC/MS/MS data in routine analytical and open access settings.
This UPLC/MS/MS system features the new Waters TQD - a benchtop, ultra-compact, tandem-quadrupole, atmospheric pressure ionization (API) mass detector designed for routine UPLC/MS/MS analyses.
With IntelliStart™ technology to integrate the internal calibration fluidics and advanced diagnostics software, the system automatically tunes and calibrates the ACQUITY TQD System and conducts full UPLC/MS/MS performance checks.
