Waters Corporation (NYSE:WAT) has unveiled new instruments, software and product enhancements to drive drug discovery and development at the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) 2022 Annual Conference. The products include the new Xevo™ G3 quadrupole time-of-flight (QTof) mass spectrometerCONFIRM Sequence - a new oligonucleotide sequencing confirmation app for the waters_connect™ software platform and an electrospray ionization source for the high-resolution Waters™ SELECT SERIES™ Multi-Reflecting Time of Flight (MRT) mass spectrometer.


“Innovation in mass spectrometry progresses rapidly. Our product introductions at this year’s ASMS benefit scientists throughout the drug development cycle,” said Jon Pratt, Senior Vice President, Waters Corporation. “For researchers, this means enhanced capability to answer fundamental scientific questions. For the analytical scientist compiling analytical data for new drug filings, it means increased certainty and confidence in knowing precisely what’s in their samples and in what quantities.”

Waters Xevo G3 QTof – A Laboratory Workhorse

The new Xevo G3 QTof system is a high-performance, benchtop mass spectrometer for characterizing and quantifying molecules in applications such as biotherapeutics, forensics, metabolite identification, metabolomics and extractables and leachables. The Xevo G3 QTof system is up to 10X more sensitive than its class-leading predecessor at transmitting thermally fragile molecules and excels at measuring and characterizing denatured or native proteins, peptides and other biotherapeutics.


“Biopharmaceutical development and commercialization requires a deep understanding of product variation, their degradation pathways and the processes that make them,” said Dr. Andrew Mahan, Associate Director, Mass Spectrometry Group Leader, Cell Engineering and Early Development, Janssen. “The extended mass-to-charge ratio (m/z) range of the Xevo G3 QTof is going to be ideal for the analysis of multi-specifics and for native MS analyses.”


Waters engineered the Xevo G3 QTof system to reliably give scientists both reproducible and accurate qualitative and quantitative information about molecules in their samples whether in very small or very large amounts.

New Software App for Confirming Nucleic Acid Sequence of Biotherapeutics

The CONFIRM Sequence app on the waters_connect software platform helps scientists using a Waters LC-MS System to confirm the nucleic acid sequence of therapeutics and identify impurities that could compromise product safety and efficacy.


The CONFIRM Sequence app eliminates 50% of the time it takes for post-processing data review, accelerating characterization and development of nucleic acid therapeutics.iii


The new CONFIRM Sequence app is the first sequencing tool to integrate compliance-ready data acquisition, processing, and reporting - making it ideal for deployment in regulated development and Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) labs.

Coupling UPLC™ to Waters MRT SELECT SERIES Research Mass Spectrometer with ESI Source for Fast Molecular Characterization

The Waters SELECT SERIES MRT System is now compatible with UPLC-MS with an available electrospray ionization (ESI) source. Coupling the high resolution MRT System with the ESI source enables scientists to accurately resolve and measure low (<200 ppb) concentrations of sample analytes at UPLC acquisition speeds for metabolomics, metabolite identification or peptide mapping applications.


The superior performance of the SELECT SERIES MRT allows scientists to get the highest quality mass spectrometry data and information faster than any commercial mass spectrometer on the market today, giving scientists a much clearer picture of the structure of their molecules at the isotope level iv.
