There is no better feeling than to receive the admiration of your child … To know that what you do can not only improve the world for others but also means the world to your reason for everything – your family. This was the experience for Waters’ Davy Petit, who recently received a text from his son expressing pride in his father’s work in the fight against COVID-19.
Waters’ latest product launch will supercharge the role of mass spectrometry research in the fight against SARS-CoV-2. Scientists can now directly quantify specific viral NCAP peptides in a highly reproducible manner with the Waters SARS-CoV-2 LC-MS Kit (RUO), allowing breakthrough research of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Critical SARS-CoV-2 PCR based diagnostics have not been immune to the supply chain disruptions so common during the COVID-19 pandemic. While the biggest disruption for PCR based testing was RNA extraction kits, enzymes and PCR primers have been affected as well. At Waters, we’ve kept a close eye on the role that high-quality preparative HPLC columns play in the PCR primer and probe supply chain. As we forge ahead through this pandemic and beyond, we will continue to help ensure adequate quality and supply of PCR primers and probes for diagnostics and routine use.
The worldwide coronavirus pandemic has changed the way that scientists and companies work. Learn how the Waters COVID-19 Innovation Response Team enabled the critical collaboration and pooling of expertise that enabled fast and safe vaccine development.
