The Waters ACQUITY UPLC system provides you with reproducible, dependable and data rich results for challenging separations. This UPLC system features a wide range of flow rates, back pressures and linear velocities, with increased throughput with high efficiency so you get the most for your time and resources.

This ultra-performance liquid chromatography system has a unique sub 2 m particle system that offers 3 times the efficiency of a 5 m system with 70% higher resolution. This higher resolution means more information from more samples in less time. The Waters UPLC system can then run separations at a flow rate 3 times faster than HPLC, without a loss in resolution. This self-contained Waters ACQUITY system contains a PDA Detector, sampler manager autosampler, a binary solvent manager, as well as a solvent and waste tray.

Binary solvent manager

The binary solvent manager is a high-pressure pump that moves solvent through the system. It provides steady (pulse-free) solvent flow at analytical flow rates. The binary solvent manager delivers solvent at flow rates of 1 mL/min at 103,421 kPa (1034 bar, 15,000 psi) and up to 2 mL/min at reduced pressures to 62,053 kPa (621 bar, 9000 psi). The binary solvent manager can pump two solvents simultaneously.
Sample manager

The ACQUITY UPLC sample manager injects the samples it draws from microtiter plates or vials onto the chromatographic column. A locating mechanism uses a probe to access sample locations and draw sample from them. In the needle overfill load-ahead mode, the sample manager can perform an injection in approximately 15 seconds. The first injection requires additional overhead time.
The sample manager accepts standard ANSI/SBS footprint plates, 5.03 0.02 inch 3.365 0.02 inch, that conform to ANSI standards (maximum height = 2.2 inches, including covers). You can program any combination of these plates and vial holders for automated sample processing. Samples are loaded into the sample manager via the front door or the optional sample organizer,
which transfers samples back and forth between the two instruments. The sample manager can maintain samples at any temperature between 4 and 40 C (39.2 to 104 F) in 25 C (77 F) or less ambient conditions.
PDA detector

The PDA (photodiode array) optical detector is an ultraviolet/visible light (UV/Vis) spectrophotometer that operates between 190 and 500 nm. The detector offers two flow cell options. The analytical flow cell, with a volume of 500 nanoliters and a pathlength of 10 mm, and the high sensitivity flow cell, with a volume 2.4 microliters and a 25 mm pathlength, both utilize the Waters patented light-guiding flow cell technology.
High temperature column heater

The high temperature (HT) column heater is modular, and its footprint is identical to that of the sample manager. The column heaters front compartment can accommodate any Waters column up to 4.6 mm ID and 150 mm long. The column rests in a U-shaped tray that swivels outward to receive the column from either side. The high temperature column heater heats the column compartment to any temperature from 5 C (9 F) above ambient to 90 C (194 F). A film element insulated to minimize power consumption and facilitate thermal stability is attached to the tray and produces heat. A passive column stabilizer, inside the tray, reduces sensitivity to ambient temperature swings and minimizes bandspreading.
