ACQUITY QDa Detector Increases Productivity

The new ACQUITY QDa Detector from Waters is compatible with ACQUITY UPLC, ACQUITY UPC2,  HPLC, supercritical fluid chromatography, and LC-based purification systems. The on/off feature fully automates sample analysis and eliminates sample-specific adjustments for certainty in sample results, from user to user and system to system. The ACQUITY QDa Detector complements optical detection by confirming the identity of compounds with mass spectral information. Additionally, the ACQUITY QDa Detector extends the limits of sample detection for a chromatographic separation by quantifying compounds having no UV response or that are present at levels not detectable and quantifiable by optical detection. The ACQUITY QDa Detector is available for separations systems running Empower 2 & 3 Chromatography Data System software.
