Waters Corporation has bagged 2012 Pittcon Editors’ Gold Award for the new Waters ACQUITY UPC2 System as the best new product at the 2012 Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy.
Employing the principle of UltraPerformance Convergence Chromatography (UPC2), ACQUITY UPC2 System expands the boundaries of reverse phase liquid chromatography (LC) and of gas chromatography (GC) separations and offers a replacement option for normal phase chromatography. ACQUITY UPC2 provides scientists with an indispensable new tool for tackling tough-to-analyse compounds including hydrophobic and chiral compounds, lipids, thermally-labile samples and polymers across a wide range of applications.
Art Caputo, President of the Waters Division said, “On behalf of all Waters employees worldwide, we graciously thank the Pittcon Editors for recognising the new ACQUITY UPC2 System and its promise as a new category of separation science. Since its founding 61 years ago, Pittcon has been one of the most important annual conferences where scientists can learn about the newest developments in laboratory science that can help them speed discovery, uncover new truths, and further the advancement of science. In 2004, the Pittcon Editors selected the ACQUITY UltraPerformance LC (UPLC) to receive their gold award for best in show. Since then, thousands of ACQUITY UPLC systems have been adopted by leading laboratories around the world
changing the landscape and impact of chromatography. We believe that ACQUITY UltraPerformance Convergence Chromatography holds that same potential by bridging the gap between LC and GC technologies — apparently leading scientific editors agree
