The first-of-its-kind Waters™ SELECT SERIES Cyclic™ IMS seamlessly integrates cyclic ion mobility (cIM) technology into a high performance research-grade time-of-flight mass spectrometer providing limitless experimental potential. Combining novel IMS capability with significantly improved mass spectrometry (MS) performance and enabling software, this platform allows leading researchers to unlock the potential in scientific discovery.
The SYNAPT™ XS is a new highly flexible, high resolution mass spectrometer for R&D labs focused on discovery applications which need the greatest variety of analytical strategies to tackle inherently challenging questions. By providing high-levels of flexibility through inlets and acquisition modes, the SYNAPT XS delivers greater freedom of analytical choice to support scientific creativity and technical success for any application.
Waters’ full portfolio of MS innovations will be on display in
“The introduction of the Cyclic IMS and SYNAPT XS systems is an exciting
manifestation of our increased R&D investments at Waters, particularly
in mass spectrometry technologies,” said Chris O’Connell, Chairman and
New SELECT SERIES Cyclic IMS
Ion mobility mass spectrometry is a proven technique to rapidly obtain information for structural elucidation and significantly enhances system peak capacity. Waters is a champion of this technology and leads the way in instrument research and development. The SELECT SERIES Cyclic IMS takes ion mobility separations to a new level by replacing the traditional linear ion mobility region with a novel compact cyclic ion guide. Ions traverse around the ion guide and with every pass, greater ion mobility resolution is achieved. The innovative cyclic device provides scalable, high-resolution ion mobility separations and introduces the unique ability to perform ion mobility/ion mobility and IMSn experiments, extending the benefits of routine ion mobility.
“The improvements in ion mobility resolving power combined with the
flexibility of the instrument which allows IMSn experiments,
to select sub populations for further study, will be transformative for
our work,” said Dr.
The Journal Analytical Chemistry documented the effectiveness and power of the cyclic IMS instrument in a recent article titled: A Cyclic Ion Mobility – Mass Spectrometry System.
New Research-Grade SYNAPT XS System
The SYNAPT XS is the newest iteration in the SYNAPT family of research grade mass spectrometers. The SYNAPT family is known and acclaimed for both its flexibility and its unique T-Wave IMS configuration, which significantly extends the power of high-resolution analysis. IMS capability on the SYNAPT increases the extent and confidence with which a scientist can profile complex mixtures and characterize complex molecules, and dramatically enhances sample definition.
The inherent power of SYNAPT is enhanced in the new SYNAPT XS with new technology building blocks that provide increased sensitivity for challenging compounds while further improving the levels of analytical robustness at far superior mass resolution than previous models. In addition, complementary modes of operation that increase analytical peak capacity providing ‘clean and clear’ fragmentation data provide a truly unique investigative toolbox for the interrogation of complex mixtures.
“Focused on discovery and characterization applications, the new SYNAPT
XS provides enhanced levels of sensitivity and mass resolution combined
with highly reproducible CCS measurements” said
BioAccord LC-MS System for Biopharmaceutical Applications
The BioAccord LC-MS System for Biopharmaceuticals continues to address critical needs of biopharmaceutical customers by expanding access to high-resolution time-of-flight mass spectrometry capabilities to more scientists.
“Rollout of the BioAccord System continues to excite our
biopharmaceutical customers as they contend with increasing complexity
of their molecules and business models,” said
Waters Presentations at ASMS 2019
Waters’ scientists will present more than 70 oral presentations and posters at ASMS many of which demonstrate the capability of ion mobility mass spectrometry for characterizing intact proteins, protein complexes, peptide mixtures, saponins, oligonucleotides, and lubricant oils.
