Sciex, Waters Partner to Provide Interoperable LC-MS Systems

NEW YORK – Sciex and Waters said on Tuesday that they are partnering to offer customers Sciex mass spectrometry systems fully configured and interoperable with Waters liquid chromatography instruments.

The collaboration will make it easier for Sciex mass spec customers to configure their systems with Waters' UPLC instruments, which can provide increased mass spec sensitivity for the detection and quantification of low abundance analytes.

The two companies have developed instrument control drivers that allow Sciex's OS software to directly control Waters Acquity UPLC I-Class Plus Systems, as well as the H-Class Plus, H-Class Plus Bio, and M-Class instruments.

"We strive to provide the best products and services, and live by the mantra, 'when customers talk, we listen,'" Dom Gostick, VP and general manager of LC-MS and chief technology officer at Sciex, said in a statement. "Through this collaboration, we are broadening the variety of LC instruments available to our growing customer base."

"Scientists will immediately benefit from ease of access to industry-leading UPLC systems," said Jon Pratt, senior VP at Waters. "This agreement provides for a smooth, integrated experience for customers with the coordinated support of Waters’ expertise and service."
