Waters Corporation today announced that Thar Technologies, a leader in supercritical fluid chromatography (SFC) , has selected Waters as its exclusive supplier of single quad mass spectrometers. Thar has agreed to sell and/or recommend Waters® Micromass® ZQ™ Mass Spectrometer in combination with its own proprietary line of SuperDiscovery SFC systems into the pharmaceutical and industrial markets. Today's agreement leverages the analytical instrument expertise of Waters with Thar's strong market presence and unique understanding of CO2-based instrumentation for SFC.

The agreement calls for the two companies to jointly develop software creating a highly integrated SFC-MS instrument. This instrument will have Thar's SuperDiscovery system control capabilities embedded into Waters MassLynx™ mass spectrometry data software. Thar can now offer a broader and more specialized chromatography product line to its current pharmaceutical and nutraceutical customers.

Dr. Rohit Khanna , Vice President, Worldwide Marketing at Waters, said, "The decision by Thar validates Waters leadership position in single quad mass spectrometry. We look forward to partnering with Thar and working with them to meet the demands of the growing SFC-MS market."

Harbaksh Sidhu , President, Instruments Division, at Thar Technologies, said, "After extensive research into the needs of our current and prospective clients, it became clear that we needed to work with Waters because of their commitment to MS technology and an unmatched level of sales and technical support that only they can provide."

The two companies will leverage each other's expertise to deliver total system solutions to the SFC market.
