New Product


Waters this week introduced a new UPLC analytical solution for the characterization of 2-AB labeled glycans from glycoproteins.

The solution combines new Acquity UPLC BEH Glycan columns with the Acquity UPLC system equipped with fluorescence detection.

In a statement, Waters said the solution is being introduced at the request of scientists who want to apply UPLC technology to the development and analysis of glycans derived from therapeutic proteins. Regulations from the US Food and Drug Administration require that companies developing and manufacturing therapeutic proteins be able to accurately characterize the glycan attached to those proteins in order to ensure efficacy and safety of a biopharmaceutical product.
