High accuracy and reliable LC-MSMS.
Application Area: Pesticide residues on leave and nuts
"It is very clear why so many laboratories are kitted out with Waters LC products: It is reliable, gives reproducible results, and processing data is a breeze which is important in a fast pace environment. We recently underwent an enormous international proficiency scheme and did exceptionally well. This can be attributed to the accuracy of the MS and stable LC quaternary pump system. After-sales is a problem for us as we are based in Sub Saharan Africa - we are therefore limited by Waters to make use of South African agents which has not always given us the standard which we would expect from Waters. The value for money cannot be over-emphasized. Yes, the instrument comes with quite a price tag, but with such reliability and stability, this is worth every cent."

I don't know how I would work without it.
Application Area:Pharmacology Toxicology
"Xevo TQD is an easy mass spectrometer coupled with a liquid chromatography system. It permits fast analysis, for example in screening drugs from urine sample or plasma extracts. It works with a software called masslynx making it easy to shift from one experiment to another, and to have complex calculus done at the very production of the tests analysis."

This instrument is robust and sensitive. Little downtime so samples aren’t delayed.
Application Area:Environmental waters
"This instrument is very sensitive and almost always is a suitable platform for the wide range of environmental samples we analyze. Low detection limits means we can reduce matrix interference by not performing spe on large quantities."

Our Waters instrument has greatly improved our laboratory and improved our TATS!!
Application Area:Pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamic drug detection
"The Waters Xevo-TQD is an magnificent instrument. The maintenance (daily, weekly, monthly etc) is very easy and most any technician will be capable of performing. The two induction ports on the front of the instrument make it simple to integrate new methodologies and sample testing parameters. The software, (MassLynx) is easier (in my opinion) to navigate through and distinguish peaks/background noise than other software such as Masshunter. The technical support is also outstanding. We ran an identical drug identification panel on an Agilent system, 101 analytes total, and the Agilent took 14 minutes per sample, the Waters 9 minutes. That is a substantial time difference especially when running full plates of 96 samples. Overall the Waters is a great instrument, easy to integrate, easy to calibrate and maintain and will make a great addition to your laboratory."

XEVO TQD - accessible, reliable and resilient!
Application Area:Food & Beverage
"The Xevo TQD is the first LCMS and indeed UPLC system in our laboratory. With our expertise lying in GCMS we required a robust and easy to use system for a variety of method applications. We have had the instrument for a little over a year now and the hardware has proven to be robust, and software enabled new users to both develop and tune methods with ease. We are able quantify new analytes of interest to a high degree of precision and repeatability scoring well on inter-laboratory studies and proficiency schemes for an accredited method we have developed. We switch between different methods and introduce varied sample types and continue to see great performance. I would recommend this product if you are looking to rapidly develop methods to produce data with a high degree of confidence. "

"This is a very good instrument with a good sensitivity. It is easy to use with Masslynx and full of new features like Radar(r) technology that allows to have a full scan at the same time as the MRMs. We are also very satisfied by the service from the Waters staff that is very efficient and qualified."
