Full Spectrum Molecular Imaging and REIMS Research System with iKnife Sampling Receive Analytical Scientist Magazine Innovation Awards


Waters Corporation (NYSE:WAT) announced today that its Full Spectrum Molecular Imaging System and its REIMS Research System with iKnife Sampling placed first and second among top innovations of 2015 as judged by The Analytical Scientist magazine.

Using Waters REIMS Research System with iKnife Sampling, researchers can quickly and easily differentiate samples from one another and confidently identify differentiating features, allowing greater insight into the chemical and biological systems under investigation. With this system, direct, rapid heating of the samples leads to the formation of vapor that is rich in sample-specific chemical information. The vapor is taken directly into the mass spectrometer where the molecules are analyzed by time-of-flight mass spectrometry.

"On behalf of all Waters employees, I want to thank The Analytical Scientist magazine for these awards," said Art Caputo, President, Waters Division. "As proud as we are of this recognition, our focus continues to be on helping scientists reach their research goals, whether it’s ensuring the safety of our food supplies or bringing life-saving medicines to patients."

An independent panel of judges awarded top honors to the two new mass spectrometry-based systems, both of which were introduced in 2015.


The Waters Full Spectrum Molecular Imaging System

The first such system to combine three technologies: matrix assisted laser desorption ionization (MALDI) imaging, desorption electrospray ionization (DESI) imaging and ion mobility, the Full Spectrum Molecular Imaging System delivers multi-layered, information-rich data from a single sample. Providing more comprehensive, detailed information than from any one imaging technique alone, the Full Spectrum Molecular Imaging System extracts the maximum amount of information from a minimal amount of sample, and allows research scientists to definitively and objectively interpret molecular distribution information.

“It has the potential to make imaging techniques truly useful,” one reviewer wrote.


Rapid Evaporative Ionization Mass Spectrometry™ (REIMS™) Research System with iKnife™ Sampling

Combining direct-from-sample ionization with high performance time-of-flight mass spectrometry and powerful, intuitive analytics, the Rapid Evaporative Ionization Mass Spectrometry™ (REIMS™) Research System with iKnife™ Sampling provides food, microbiology and tissue researchers with near-instantaneous data acquisition.

Removing the need for sample preparation and chromatographic separation, the system has the potential to make a huge impact on the time and money required to analyze large numbers of samples by mass spectrometry. When combined with multivariate statistical analysis, research scientists can quickly and easily differentiate samples from one another and confidently identify the differentiating features, allowing greater insight into chemical and biological systems.

One judge wrote, “This is a potential game-changer in terms of real-time sampling and practical analysis.”

Waters products have been recognized by The Analytical Scientist magazine for innovation before. In 2013, the inaugural year of the award competition, the Waters® ACQUITY® QDa® Detector ranked among the innovation winners.


About The Analytical Scientist Magazine

The ability to separate, identify and quantify the chemical components of materials— analytical chemistry—has an enormous impact on our lives; on the food we eat, our environment, energy supply, and the medicines we take. The Analytical Scientist integrates all aspects of the topic, from advances in science and technology to first-hand accounts from the labs that test athlete’s samples; and from progress in business and policy to advice for career development and job satisfaction.

The Analytical Scientist launched in January 2013. It encompasses a print magazine, a global website optimized for tablets and smart phones, and an iPad app. The Analytical Scientist can also be found on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
