Waters now offers a full range of LC-MS/MS IVD medical devices for
"Waters was a pioneer in the use of LC-MS as medical devices over a
decade ago," said
Using LC-MS technology, clinical laboratories perform qualitative and quantitative analyses of patients' samples to aid clinicians in many ways. Over recent years, the scope of use for IVD LC-MS instrument systems in the clinical environment has widened and the number of tests that can be developed and validated by diagnostic laboratory service providers has grown rapidly. Liquid chromatography separates analytes and interferences within a given sample, while mass spectrometry technology is used for detection and quantification of those analytes. LC-MS technology is also commonly used in forensic toxicology testing.
IVD medical devices are designed to optimize clinical laboratory
workflows. The systems now available in
- ACQUITY UPLC I-Class/Xevo TQD IVD System, which is a rugged, robust, and reliable LC-MS clinical analyzer for routine quantitative analysis
- ACQUITY UPLC I-Class/Xevo TQ-S micro IVD System, which offers high LC-MS performance from a compact instrument design with rapid, reliable, and reproducible quantitative data
- ACQUITY UPLC I-Class/Xevo TQ-S IVD System, which enables accurate quantitative sensitivity for LC-MS analysis of samples with complex matrices or low concentrations that are commonly encountered in clinical laboratories
Waters’ LC-MS IVD instrument systems have previously been listed with
