Waters Corporation has introduced the Alliance iS, a next-generation intelligent HPLC system, designed to reduce compliance risk by adding new levels of proactive error detection, troubleshooting, and ease of use. According to Waters, when combined with its compliance-ready Empower Chromatography software and eConnect™ HPLC columns, the Alliance iS HPLC system streamlines the task of making accurate and precise measurements by detecting and eliminating common errors by up to 40%. In doing so, the Alliance iS HPLC system helps QC laboratories meet quality, safety, compliance, and on-time product delivery goals.
Based on customer insights, the Alliance iS HPLC system is designed for the needs of the QC laboratory, and provides simplicity to routine measurements. With visual prompts and alerts delivered via an intuitive touchscreen interface, the system notifies the operator if an improper method is chosen for an application, when a sample vial is missing, when it’s time to refill a solvent bottle, or if it’s time for system maintenance. These are common conditions that when caught early enough, can eliminate system errors that would otherwise degrade the ability of scientists to get needed drugs to patients and ultimately cost a laboratory time and money.
The system also integrates with the cloud-native waters_connect™system monitoring software enabling real-time monitoring of the Alliance iS HPLC system and any other chromatography instruments controlled by Empower software. Laboratory managers can view the live status of their HPLC instrument fleet from anywhere and at any time to further improve equipment utilization and overall productivity.
