Waters Corporation (NYSE: WAT) introduced today two new mass spectrometers for its Xevo MS platform – the Xevo TQ-S and Xevo G2 QTof – that bring a step change in performance to benchtop mass spectrometry. The product introductions were made at the 58th annual meeting of the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS).
The Xevo TQ-S and Xevo G2 QTof are the newest members of the Xevo family of benchtop mass spectrometers first introduced in 2008 and are the most powerful mass spectrometers in their class. Combined with Waters® ACQUITY® UltraPerformance LC® (UPLC®) Systems these mass spectrometers offer scientists an unequalled combination of separations power with highest levels of sensitivity whether for compound identification, quantification, and screening, or for extracting the most information from the smallest sample volumes all in a single analysis.
Said Brian Smith, V.P. Mass Spectrometry Operations, Waters Division, "With today's announcements, Waters has firmly established its leadership position in high-performance mass spectrometry. The new features and innovations scientists will find in our new Xevo mass spectrometers, more than anything else, are intended to deliver results. As they have told us time and again, that's what really counts."
At a press conference today, Waters global Vice President of Worldwide Marketing, Dr. Rohit Khanna, remarked, "Our customers have told us they want high-quality, high-impact results faster, and with less effort. These new additions to our Xevo family of mass spectrometers mean we can deliver applications-specific UPLC/MS/MS systems that can help them achieve their scientific and business objectives and put answers to complex challenges within easy reach."
Waters expects to begin shipping the Xevo G2 QTof system in June and the Xevo TQ-S system in September.
