Waters Introduces the ACQUITY QDa Detector, Bringing Push-Button Mass Detection to Chromatography

Oct 31 2013

The ACQUITY QDa Detector is the culmination of Waters’ 30 years experience in mass spectrometry resulting in an instrument with 37 new patents that address the ease of use, size and affordability questions that our customers have been asking.

The ACQUITY QDa Detector addresses the barriers of complexity, size and cost that have hindered the adoption of mass spectrometry for everyday use. It is purposefully designed for analytical scientists who need mass spectral data without the complexity of a mass spectrometer. With the on/off simplicity that analytical scientists have long wanted from mass spectrometry, the ACQUITY QDa Detector fully automates sample analysis and eliminates sample-specific adjustments for certainty in sample results, from user to user and system to system. Robust and reliable enough for routine use, the ACQUITY QDa Detector generates the high quality mass spectral data expected of a single quadrupole mass spectrometer in a mass detector no bigger than a familiar photodiode array (PDA) detector.  

The ACQUITY QDa Detector complements optical detection, such as the PDA detector, 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.  By simplifying laboratory workflows, the detector enhances the value of every analysis and increases productivity by eliminating the need to run additional assays or turn to time-consuming alternative techniques in order to establish with certainty the levels and identity of specific sample compounds.

Come and learn how the ACQUITY QDa Detector will benefit your lab. Register for our  seminar to be held in Elstree, Hertfordshire on 27th November 2013.
