Waters' Xevo TQ-XS Mass Spectrometer and Symphony Data Pipeline

Waters has launched its new Xevo TQ-XS mass spectrometer and its Symphony Data Pipeline software. The new tandem quadropole mass spectrometry system uses the StepWave XS ion guide, incorporates the XDR Detector — a photomultiplier detection system — and a proprietary ionization source called UniSpray. The Symphony software automates the movement and transformation of large amounts of LC-MS data to speed up analytical workflows by automatically copying raw data files to a remote location while the column is conditioning, the company said.
