Date:6/3/2009

PHILADELPHIA, June 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Waters Corporation (NYSE: WAT) announced today that the American Society for Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) presented Prof. Alison Ashcroft of the University of Leeds with the first Ron Hites Award for Outstanding Research Publication in the Journal of the American Society of Mass Spectrometry (JASMS). Prof. Ashcroft's paper titled, Monitoring Copopulated Conformational States During Protein Folding Events Using Electrospray Ionization-Ion Mobility Spectrometry-Mass Spectrometry appeared in the December 2007 issue of JASMS and was co-authored by Waters scientists Kevin Giles and Robert Bateman along with University of Leeds researchers David Smith and Professor Sheena Radford. Prof. Ashcroft's team acquired the research data for the publication on a Waters(R) SYNAPT High Definition MS(TM) (HDMS(TM)) System. She is Manager of the Mass Spectrometry Facility in the Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology at the University of Leeds.

ASMS judged the publication on the basis of its "innovative aspects, technical quality, likely stimulation of future research, likely impact on future applications, and the quality of the presentation."

Prof. Ashcroft received the Award and $2,000 cash stipend at a ceremony on Wednesday, June 3, in Philadelphia at the 57th ASMS Conference on Mass Spectrometry and Allied Topics.

The Award is named in honor of Professor Ronald A. Hites of Indiana University who spearheaded the creation of JASMS in 1988 while President of ASMS. JASMS is devoted to the publication of research papers covering all aspects of mass spectrometry from all fields of science including chemistry, physics, geology, environmental, biological, health and life sciences.

Prof. Ashcroft's laboratory was one of the first scientific laboratories
