MILFORD, Mass., Dec. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Waters Corporation (WAT:NYSE) announced today that its ACQUITY® QDa™ Detector was ranked among the top innovations of 2013 by The Analytical Scientist magazine.
Introduced on October 7, 2013, the ACQUITY QDa Detector is a small, easy-to-use and affordable mass detector that brings high-quality mass spectral information to chromatographic separations. Mass spectral information greatly enhances chemical compound identification, something that is very important to laboratories doing method development, sample profiling, chemical synthesis and purification. The ACQUITY QDa Detector gives analytical chemists the freedom to get mass spectral information on their own, for all their samples - just like photodiode array data – at the push of a button.
"On behalf of all Waters employees, I want to thank The Analytical Scientist magazine for recognizing the new ACQUITY QDa Detector with a 2013 Innovation of the Year Award," said Art Caputo, President, Waters Division. "The development of the ACQUITY QDa Detector is the realization of a vision that started 20 years ago when we foresaw a day when chromatography and mass spectrometry technologies could be blended together to give every analytical scientist access to mass spectral data regardless of their previous experience with mass spectrometry."
According to the magazine's web site, The Analytical Scientist award winners "enhance sample preparation, separation, identification, quantification, analysis, or a combination of these, and will contribute to progress in basic science and analysis that helps make our wo
