Waters Signs Mass Spec, Software, LC Purchase Deal with Indian CRO

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Waters will provide mass spectrometry equipment and training to the clinical research services company Lambda Therapeutics Research when Lambda lands service contracts, a Waters spokesman told GenomeWeb Daily News today.
 
The agreement  “paves the way” for Ahmedabad, India-based Lambda to purchase Waters’ Quattro Premier XE tandem quadrupole mass spectrometer, Acquity UPLC system, and MassLynx software for use in analyzing complex biological samples, Waters spokesman Jeff Tarmy said.
  
“The agreement enables Lambda to meet its international business goals by fulfilling its needs for innovative laboratory equipment, including mass spectrometry, liquid chromatography, and laboratory software solutions,” the company said in a statement yesterday.
 
Tarmy said the plan means that “the agreements are in place” for Lambda to buy the tools, training, and knowledge, and that a pathway has been set for Lambda to handle orders as they come in.
 
Lambda works as a clinical research services partner with pharmaceutical companies, and has facilities in Mumbai, Chennai, and in Warsaw, Poland.
 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
