Waters said the acquisition is part of a strategy to develop simpler, more streamlined mass spec workflows that will be accessible to non-expert users.

As part of the deal, Waters has also placed a Synapt G2-Si mass spec instrument at Purdue University to help advance research applications for DESI.

The company registered its Prelude LX-4 MD HPLC as a Class I medical device for general clinical use. 

While LC-MS/MS workflows using triple quadrupoles and, more recently, Q-TOF and Q-Exactive instruments, have typically dominated discussion of mass spec-based protein quantitation, MALDI mass spec has recently emerged as a potential alternative for such applications.
