Waters Corporation has announced that its ACQUITY® Arc™ System received a 2016 New Product Innovation Award from market research and growth consulting firm Frost & Sullivan.

The Waters® ACQUITY Arc System is a liquid chromatograph (LC) that gives drug development and quality control laboratories running routine, established LC methods a single LC platform for replicating or improving the performance of their separations methods regardless of the LC platform on which they were first developed.

“On behalf of the ACQUITY Arc product team, we are thankful to Frost & Sullivan for this honor,” says 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.”

Waters formally introduced the ACQUITY Arc System in 2015 at a news conference in Beijing, China.
