Waters Corporation recently announced the introduction of the ACQUITY UPLC PLUS Series.
Three new ACQUITY UltraPerformance LC™ (UPLC™) Systems that build off of the success of Waters’ industry-leading ACQUITY UPLC separations platform.
Waters designed the new ACQUITY UPLC H-Class PLUS, H-Class PLUS Bio, and I-Class PLUS Systems. These are for unparalleled flexibility, performance, and ease-of-use. Academic, pharmaceutical, food, and chemical industry laboratories use ACQUITY UPLC. This is to meet their research, development and quality control objectives.
The ACQUITY UPLC H-Class PLUS and H-Class PLUS BioSystems are quaternary UPLC systems. Also, they are designed for high-resolution, high-sensitivity separations of complex samples with the flexibility and robustness to run all modes of chromatography namely:–
- ion exchange
- size exclusion
- hydrophilic interaction
- hydrophobic interaction
- reversed phase
Also, it is independent of the type or size chromatographic column particle the method specifies. In addition, these systems are especially well-suited as an inlet to mass spectrometry, for streamlined method development, and for routine analysis laboratories running HPLC, UHPLC or UPLC analytical methods.
Furthermore, the ACQUITY UPLC I-Class PLUS System is a binary UPLC system. It is designed to generate ultra-efficient, narrow peaks and to improve the sensitivity of optical detection or mass spectrometry. With industry-leading, ultra-low dispersion and delay volumes, it is an ideal system for laboratories seeking the highest chromatographic resolution and productivity possible in a UPLC system.
In addition, the ACQUITY UPLC H-Class PLUS, H-Class PLUS Bio, and I-Class PLUS replace the Waters ACQUITY UPLC H-Class, ACQUITY UPLC H-Class Bio and ACQUITY UPLC I-Class Systems in Waters product line. So, the foundational enhancements made to the ACQUITY UPLC PLUS Series will not affect the analytical results for well-established, validated LC methods developed with the ACQUITY UPLC H-Class, H-Class Bio and I-Class Systems.
Finally, for laboratories that wish to extend the lifecycle of their investment in previously-installed systems, Waters is offering ACQUITY UPLC PLUS Series Usability and Performance Enhancement Kits.
