The solution eases the problem of analyte/metal surface interactions when analyzing organic acids, organophosphates, oligonucleotides, phosphopeptides, acidic glycans, and phospholipids by reverse-phase and hydrophilic interaction chromatography.

The Waters Acquity Premier Solution from Waters Corporation is a liquid chromatograph featuring Waters’ MaxPeak High Performance Surface technology, which works to improve analytical data quality and eliminate the need for passivation.

Used in combination with Acquity Premier Columns, the solution is formulated to ease the problem of analyte/metal surface interactions when analyzing organic acids, organophosphates, oligonucleotides, phosphopeptides, acidic glycans, and phospholipids by reversed phase and hydrophilic interaction chromatography. Additionally, the solution:

  • Increases analyte recovery with 10–100X improvement in detection sensitivity for low-level phosphorylated and carboxylated analytes, reducing the risk of unseen analytes going undetected
  • Produces sharper peak shapes and greater peak capacity for precise analyte identification and data interpretation
  • Provides greater reproducibility for separations prone to adsorptive losses
  • Simplifies the relocation of methods from site-to-site and from company-to-company
  • Offers ultra-performance liquid chromatography (UPLC) performance for the analysis of metal-sensitive and non-metal-sensitive analytes.

“The Acquity Premier Solution represents our biggest innovation in separation science since UPLC,” said Ian King, senior vice-president, Global Products, Waters Corporation, in a Feb. 10, 2021 press release. “Chromatography has an immeasurable impact on the development of novel therapeutics and treatments for innumerable diseases. The result of decades of separations science know-how along with the combined efforts of our materials scientists, chemists, and engineers, Acquity Premier addresses a long-standing problem that has held back scientific progress long enough. We firmly believe it will redefine the value that separations science brings to scientific achievement.”
