The Waters Acquity UPLC is a next-generation liquid chromatography system with enhanced sensitivity, solvent efficiency, and versatility. Its technology is based on using sub-2 micrometer particles as opposed to sub-5 micrometer particles. With this new foundation, the Acquity achieves 70% higher resolution, three times the efficiency, and nine times the throughput of traditional high performance liquid chromatography. Although the Acquity utilizes smaller columns and particles, it still supports existing HPLC methods and can be used with third-party mass spectrometers.
