Waters' ACQUITY Arc LC system

  Waters' ACQUITY Arc LC system.

Waters’ ACQUITY Arc liquid chromatography (LC) system has received a 2016 New Product Innovation Award from market research and growth consulting firm Frost & Sullivan.

The ACQUITY Arc system gives drug development and quality control laboratories running routine, established LC methods a single LC platform for replicating or improving the performance of their separations methods regardless of the LC platform on which they were first developed.

Until its introduction in 2015, scientists working with established methods, and who wished to improve the performance of those methods, did not have a liquid chromatograph versatile enough to bridge the gap between high performance LC (HPLC) and UltraPerformance LC (UPLC). With the introduction of the ACQUITY Arc system, and its enabling Arc Multi-flow path technology, scientists can now emulate the gradient dwell volume and mixing behavior of liquid chromatographs from a variety of manufacturers without altering the method’s gradient table.

“In the regulated environment in which pharmaceutical companies operate, they are by nature conservative when it comes to adopting new technologies, and they prefer ‘tried and true’ methods especially when it comes to later stages of the drug development and commercialization process,” said Janani Balasundar, research analyst at Frost & Sullivan. “With the ACQUITY Arc System, Waters has given pharmaceutical companies the capability of introducing a single LC platform for their workflows for improving analytical method performance and thereby productivity while maintaining CGMP compliance.”

“On behalf of the ACQUITY Arc product team, we are thankful to Frost & Sullivan for this honor,” said Mike Yelle, vice president – separations, Waters Corporation. “The award recognizes the commercial success of the ACQUITY Arc System and the positive impact it is having on laboratories, in Asia and elsewhere, that are supporting business-critical analytical methods.”
