Application Area: Pharmaceuticals
ACQUITY UPLC System

"This high end sophisticated product is best suited for existing HPLC methods and also for new methods in terms of speed without compromising resolution and sensitivity. A very good tool for impurity profiling and method development. In today's fast world where high productivity in terms of sample analysis is expected in less time this product is an apt answer. Not only it is faster but you can combine it with any detector either of Waters makes or of a different manufacturer which makes its applications even more wider which is a good value for money. And with Waters own "Empower" software it becomes easier to operate even for a novice person. A must have for each Analytical laboratory. "

Application Area: Separation And Molecular Weight
ACQUITY UPLC System

"The instrument works fine. However its Empower software is difficult to use unless you are very familiar with it and use it every day. For molecular weight measurement, the software cannot give numbers based on individual peaks and whole chromatograph at the same time. But the after sales service is excellent. "

Application Area: Residue Chemistry And E-Fate Metabolism Chemistry
ACQUITY UPLC System

"The system is functional and it meets its needs for large molecule analysis, but for residue studies it has its problems with carry over. Also when control by other software besides waters there are many communication issues. It is a useful tool and it is easy to work with, but I would recommend not using it for residue chemistry, unless someone has validated the method and you know the problems from the beginning. However it is very useful connected to a ToF Mass Spec for Proteomics I have seen great results for peptide ID it tends to handle buffers better than other systems. "

Application Area: Amino acid analysis with AcqTag application
ACQUITY UPLC System

"The sample derivatization method is easy to implement. The separation of amino acids with UPLC worked immediately without any method tuning or problems. The cleaning procedure of the UPLC after other analyses is quite demanding (takes one day), so maybe not be very applicable if the instrument is used also for other analyses or at least demands good planning of the instrument use. The eluents are quite expensive and according to label suitable for use for one month after opening. Thus method is quite expensive if analyses are done rarely."

"The waters Acquity UPLC is heavily utilized daily in my laboratory for bioanalytical assays of proteins and small molecule residuals. The resolution and sensitivity that can be achieved is worth the cost. The Empower software is easy to use after a slightly difficult learning period. At first the software seemed difficult (relative to Chemstation) but now that I am using it often I prefer Empower. One great benefit is the Acquity console that controls instrument and column and has easy access to column information and literature. This instrument is critical for our success."

"Waters' UPLC and LCMS systems with the Masslynx platform offer the most reliable and versatile systems in the world. In addition to their ruggedness, Waters as a company offers outstanding after the sale service. Engineers are well trained in all aspects of their instruments and are readily available to help. In my experience, first response takes no longer than 24 hrs and a solution is reached between 24 to 72 hrs. Their telephone support is remarkable, you no longer have to leave a message and someone has to get back to you to solve your issue. The person answering the call is the person who will help and solve your issue. They also have the capability to log into your computer system to fix any problems directly from Milford. I have experience with other vendors in the same area as we also have competitors LC/MS systems and compared side to side, Waters by far tops them all."

"Using the Acquity we are able to reduce analysis time and solvent usage/waste (and preparing less mobile phase takes less labtime as well). The Waters support is fantastic; their engineers 'know their stuff' and work to constantly improve the product. The resolution tends to be better with the UPLC (vs. HPLC), and I've found the instruments to be as robust as typical HPLCs. The columns will clog more easily, however I've found that a pre-column filter saves the column if there are large particulates in the sample."

Description

 

Waters ACQUITY UPLC - Dramatic Improvements in Speed, Sensitivity and Resolution

Whether you work in methods development or quality assurance, in drug discovery and development or testing for safety in food supplies, you seek a productivity edge. With the ACQUITY UPLC® System, now you can get more information in a single, short run than you've ever seen with HPLC.

Waters ACQUITY UPLC System
UltraPerformance LC® (UPLC®) technology starts with unique 1.7 μm small-particle chemistries. Chromatographers no longer need to choose between speed and resolution–with UPLC you get both.

Instrument Designed for Chemistry; Chemistry Designed for the Instrument
The ACQUITY UPLC System has been holistically designed to match the performance needs of our innovative column chemistries with robust hardware, easy-to-use software and specialized support services.

  • Small, pressure-tolerant particles
  • High-pressure fluidic modules
  • Minimized system volume
  • Negligible carryover
  • Reduced cycle times
  • Fast response detectors
  • Integrated system software and diagnostics

With UPLC you have the ability to work more efficiently with higher speed, sensitivity and resolution at a much wider range of linear velocities, flow rates and backpressures to obtain superior results.

The Waters ACQUITY UPLC System's high-pressure fluidics optimizes flow rates to make the most of small particle technology. The ACQUITY UPLC System's sample-handling design is designed to ensure exceptionally low carryover and reduced cycle time. And when interfaced with the Sample Organizer, it increases unattended sample capacity by ten times.

High-speed detectors, both optical and mass, contribute to increased sensitivity and help manage the heightened speed and resolution requirements of UPLC.

ACQUITY UPLC Systems are easily controlled, diagnosed, and monitored via a graphical system console interface. The console offers:

  • Quick and easy access to critical instrument parameters
  • Simple system start-up, elegant system status monitoring and predictive performance indicators to ensure maximum productivity
  • Data management capabilities that are supported by both MassLynx™ and Empower™ software
  • The ACQUITY UPLC System is also supported by Intelligent Device Management technology with our Connections® INSIGHTservice, providing instrument diagnostics.
