ATLANTA, GA: The 2016 Pittsburgh Conference on Analytical Chemistry and Applied Spectroscopy observed new line of product releases from Waters Corporation. The latest product offerings include a range of differential scanning calorimeters and new CORTECS column chemistries.

Claiming TA Instruments' position as the technology and global leader in thermal analysis, Waters also reported approximately four years of work based savings by biopharmaceutical laboratories industry-wide through its GlycoWorks RapiFluor-MS N-Glycan Kit in the first year of its availability.

“Innovation is the engine that drives Waters," said Christopher J. O'Connell, President and CEO, Waters Corporation. "From the days of Jim Waters, our commitment to innovation has been deeply engrained in the organization's make-up. For decades, the organization's central focus has been to innovate and push the boundaries of analytical science to develop and support the technologies that enable our customers around the globe to be successful. Seeing the comprehensive product portfolio from Waters and TA Instruments here at Pittcon underscores the company's innovation leadership,” he added.

Featuring enhanced sensing technologies the latest range of Differential Scanning Calorimeters (DSC) by Waters viz. Discovery DSC 2500, DSC 250, and DSC 25 offers novel performance in baseline flatness, sensitivity, resolution, and reproducibility. The calorimeters utilize exclusive TA Fusion Cell that integrates features of the Q-Series and first generation Discovery DSC, patented Tzero technology, and new proprietary manufacturing processes. Further, each DSC accompanies app style interface that runs on powerful new TRIOS software aiding automated calibration and verification routines.

"DSC is the anchor of a thermal analysis laboratory," said Terry Kelly, President, TA Instruments. "In terms of performance and ease-of-use the new Discovery Series DSC is so advanced, that upgrading to one of our powerful new systems will bring scientists lasting benefits," he explained.

Waters also introduced two new LC column chemistries, the Waters CORTECS C8 and CORTECS Phenyl analytical columns. The columns are grounded on Waters proven solid-core particle technology expanding chromatographic separation space while maximizing speed, resolution and sensitivity of small molecule HPLC, UHPLC or UPLC separations.
