Frost & Sullivan and Strategic Directions International Magazine Identify

Waters Mass Spectrometers as Technology Leaders

MILFORD, Mass., Aug. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Waters Corporation (NYSE: WAT) today announced that Waters(R) SYNAPT(TM) High Definition MS(TM) (HDMS(TM)) System was recognized by Frost & Sullivan for a Product Innovation of the Year award, and Strategic Directions International's Instrument Business Outlook (IBO) selected the Xevo(TM) TQ MS System as the Best New Product at the 2008 American Society of Mass Spectrometry (ASMS) annual meeting.

"We are appreciative of the due diligence from both Frost & Sullivan and IBO, and are honored by their respective recognition in evaluating Waters SYNAPT HDMS and Xevo TQ MS," said Brian W. Smith, Vice President, Mass Spectrometry Operations, for the Waters Division. "Waters mass spectrometry is experiencing significant momentum in the marketplace. Our scientists have developed novel innovations and the beneficiaries have been our customers who are realizing new levels of success in reaching their own goals and achievements."

In 2006, Waters introduced the SYNAPT HDMS System, the first mass spectrometry (MS) system to leverage high-efficiency ion mobility-based measurements and to advance research in proteomics, structural biology and small molecule experiments. "This unique combination of technologies allow scientists to differentiate samples by their size, shape, and charge, as well as mass, which has enabled the separation, detection, and characterization of components not possible with conventional mass spectrometry," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst, Lakshman Koundinya.

The Xevo TQ MS System, an advanced tandem quadrupole mass spectrometer designed to deliver unrivalled performance and functionality, uses innovative IntelliStart(TM) and ScanWave(TM) technologies to deliver versatility and advanced quantitative capability to a broader range of scientists. "The Xevo's novel collision cell design enables it to operate in T-Wave(TM) mode or in Waters' more recently developed ScanWave mode. T-Wave has the effect of significantly improving the fast scanning abilities of tandem MS," wrote IBO. "Perhaps the more interesting capability is the ScanWave mode of the collision cell, which helps Xevo to significantly increase the signal intensity of both parent and product ion spectra."
