Obtaining the most chromatographic information per run for compounds with a poor or no UV/Vis response is an issue facing scientists worldwide. In response to this challenge, Waters Corporation today announced the introduction of a new Evaporative Light Scattering Detector (ELSD), engineered and optimized for use with the company's ground-breaking ACQUITY Ultra Performance LC™ System. This solution allows scientists to evaluate more UV/Vis transparent molecules such as sugars, triglycerides, and phospholipids as well as certain antibiotics, and natural products in one analytical run thereby enhancing scientific productivity.

The new ELSD was designed to combine the speed, sensitivity and resolution of the company's ACQUITY UPLC™ System with advanced light scattering detection technology. This synergy enhances the quality of information generated in each chromatographic run. Method developers, researchers, mass spectrometrists and chromatographers can now take advantage of this new dimension in performance yielded by ACQUITY UPLC technology to expand upon both the variety of chemical structures they can evaluate, as well as the quality of information obtained from their analyses.

According to Mary Ellen Goffredo, Director of Product Marketing, "The Waters ACQUITY UPLC ELSD is an essential element for anyone seeking a productivity edge in the laboratory."

Versatile and programmable, the detector can be controlled by world-class informatics platforms- MassLynx™ and Empower™ Software. This new detector is also stackable, optimizing bench space. For dependable results, it also has precise temperature control during the nebulization and evaporation processes allowing for the measurement of temperature-sensitive molecules while maintaining low-dispersion characteristics.
