NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – ESA Biosciences said today that it is collaborating with Waters to integrate its Corona CAD universal HPLC detector with Waters’ Empower 2 chromatography control and data analysis platform.
UK-based ESA said that many pharmaceutical scientists already combine a Empower 2 software-controlled LC system with the Corona CAD detector for a variety of applications including excipient and formulation characterization, impurity analysis, cleaning validation, and final product quality control. Jasmine Gruia-Gray, VP of life sciences marketing at ESA, added that the firm’s customers have asked for a direct interface of the two products.
The firms expect to complete the integration project in the third quarter of 2008. ESA said that it would provide the Empower 2 software driver free of charge to existing Corona CAD customers.
Further terms of the alliance were not disclosed.
