The Waters Arc HPLC system is a new high-performance liquid chromatograph (HPLC) for routine testing in the pharmaceutical, food, academic and materials markets. A key target application is quality control laboratories performing batch release tests on small molecule pharmaceuticals. Waters has also announced the availability of Waters Empower BC LAC/E with SecureSync, its newly enhanced data back-up and recovery solution, purpose-built for organisations with distributed laboratory environments.
The Arc HPLC system is aimed at laboratories looking for a rugged, reliable and modern HPLC system that can run established HPLC methods regardless of the brand of liquid chromatograph on which they were originally developed, while preserving the chromatographic retention time reproducibility of those methods. The system offers ultra-low analyte carryover, superb injection precision and backpressure tolerance to 9 500psi at 5.0l/min. It is designed to meet all the requirements of a top-of-the-line HPLC system in a cost-competitive package that takes routine testing to the next level.
Most quality control methods in use today are HPLC methods. These methods have one common goal: to measure the concentration of any active ingredient and any known impurity in a finished product and record the results of tests in compliance with regulatory and quality standards. As a state-of-the art workhorse instrument, this is what the Arc HPLC system routinely does.
The Arc HPLC runs on Waters’ compliant-ready, industry-leading Empower 3 chromatography data software, trusted by thousands of clients for whom data integrity is of paramount importance.
