Arc Premier Solution Improves Data Quality for Challenging Compounds

By June 15, 2021

As part of the MaxPeak Premier Product family, Waters™ new Arc™ Premier Solution is designed for customers who require the most accurate and reproducible data. The Arc Premier System produces correct and robust results from the first injection – reliably and easily. Optimized with MaxPeak High Performance Surfaces (HPS) Technology, developed for use with 2.5 µm MaxPeak HPS Columns (RP and HILIC), the Arc Premier Solution delivers improvements in separation and detection of metal-sensitive analytes.

The Arc Premier System provides the perfect balance of performance and ruggedness for routine analysts and method developers

At Waters, innovation is driven by a deep-seated desire to Deliver Benefit to our customers, shareholders, employees, and society. We recognize the difficult chromatographic challenges you face; but also understand that unlocking the potential of science demands more than instrumentation of unparalleled technical precision. It means driving greater collaboration to help uncover the ideas that will fuel the ​next generation of scientific advancements, as well as drive the ongoing business-critical data and insight today’s labs demand.  ​ ​

When High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) wasn’t keeping pace with your demands, Waters introduced ACQUITY™ UPLC™, which advanced speed, resolution, and sensitivity in chromatographic separations. Our MaxPeak Premier Solutions bring the next generation of chromatographic performance to your lab and address your challenges with increasing sample complexity and the wide-ranging effects of adsorptive losses on your analyses.

Get ready to see what you’ve been missing.

MaxPeak Premier Solutions deliver performance without passivation

Even as modern HPLC and UHPLC systems and columns provide high levels of performance, unwanted analyte/surface interactions can still negatively affect liquid chromatographic methods. This can lead to sample losses, limited sensitivity, poor reproducibility, and missing analytes. Good chromatography is as much about preventing the interactions you don’t want, as it is about creating the ones you need.

The MaxPeak Premier Solutions help eliminate the need for passivation or conditioning, and enables greater sensitivity and peak shapes – all while reducing variability in your results from injection-to-injection and day-to-day.

With the MaxPeak Premier Solutions you can:

  • Have greater confidence in every result
  • Minimize the risk of undetected analytes
  • Get to the right answer – faster
  • Increase overall efficiency in the laboratory

“From injection number one, you see your analytes…even on a trace level.” Hear more from Michael Donegan, Waters Principal Research Scientist in this video:

Holistic solutions for increased flexibility and high-level confidence

A true measure of excellence for Waters is in orchestrating consistent quality and performance for both instrument and chemistry. This commitment, in turn, empowers scientists across applications, methods, and workflows to fine-tune systems to specific analytical needs and consistently maintain a high level of confidence in every result.

The outcome is better quality data and faster, improved system-to-system and column-to-column reproducibility – allowing methods to be transferred between analysts, instruments, and laboratories.

Innovative technology mitigates analyte interactions

The MaxPeak Premier Solutions are designed with Waters’ innovative MaxPeak HPS Technology, which mitigates analyte interactions with the metal surfaces of the chromatography system and column to help prevent analyte adsorption.

By mitigating non-specific adsorption, the MaxPeak Premier Solutions provide:

  • Reduced risk of undetected analytes, providing complete information for decision making
  • Increased efficiency by reducing time-consuming system and column passivation
  • Greater reproducibility and increased confidence in results
  • Improved sensitivity and peak shapes ensuring better data quality
  • Dramatic improvements in RP and HILIC applications for organic acids, organophosphates, oligonucleotides, peptides, glycans, and phospholipids

Analysis of adenosine monophosphate, adenosine, diphosphate, and adenosine triphosphate. Significant improvements to sensitivity and recovery are observed with the Arc Premier Solution compared to a conventional LC system.

With the MaxPeak Premier Solutions, it is now possible to:

  • Decrease time-to-result
  • Detect low concentration analytes with greater confidence
  • Increase efficiency while reducing costs
