The Waters ACQUITY Arc System Receives 2016 Frost & Sullivan New Product Innovation Award
Bridging the gap between HPLC and UPLC performance, the ACQUITY Arc System is a favorite of QC laboratories that test small and large molecule pharmaceuticals.
Frost & Sullivan has a global team of analysts and consultants continuously researching a wide range of markets across multiple sectors and geographies. As part of this ongoing research, their research analysts identify companies that have successfully introduced new and innovative products into their markets, with emphasis on product quality and customer value.
We first introduced the ACQUITY Arc System in June of 2015 in Beijing, China. The goal was to provide analytical scientists with a tool to ease the challenges of method transfer between systems, without the need to fully revalidate those methods – a particular problem when older instrumentation becomes out of date.
Janani Balasundar, Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan, noted, “In the regulated environment in which pharmaceutical companies operate, they are by nature conservative when it comes to adopting new technologies, and they prefer “tried and true” methods especially when it comes to later stages of the drug development and commercialization process.”
Janani continued, “With the ACQUITY Arc System, Waters has given pharmaceutical companies the capability of introducing a single LC platform for their workflows for improving analytical method performance and thereby productivity while maintaining CGMP compliance.”

With the ACQUITY Arc System and its enabling Arc Multi-flow path™ technology, analytical scientists can experience true plug-and-play method compatibility for separation needs. Significant productivity gains can be realized by deploying a single chromatography platform that allows the efficient transfer, adjustment, or improvement of methods from any LC platform without compromise. This technology provides chromatographers with critical tools to focus and maintain CGMP compliance in requlated environments.
“On behalf of the ACQUITY Arc product team, we are thankful to Frost & Sullivan for this honor,” said Mike Yelle, Vice President – Separations, Waters Corporation. “The award recognizes the commercial success of the ACQUITY Arc System and the positive impact it is having on laboratories, in Asia and elsewhere, that are supporting business-critical analytical methods.”
The Frost & Sullivan Award is actually the second time that the ACQUITY Arc has received a top award. At the annual Pittcon Conference in the spring of 2016, Select Science announced the system won the Scientists’ Choice Award for Best New Separations Product of 2015.
