World’s First Cyclic IMS Mass Spectrometer Installed at Aston University

Posted by fidest press agency su domenica, 10 novembre 2019

Aston University and Waters Corporation (NYSE: WAT) announced today the completed installation of the world’s first Waters™ SELECT SERIES™ Cyclic™ IMS (ion mobility spectrometry) mass spectrometer within the University’s School of Health and Life Sciences, where the instrument will support research into the biology of human diseases, the discovery of new therapeutics and advances in biotechnology. Mass spectrometry (MS) is a widely deployed analytical method used by scientists to identify and quantify molecules in a sample and determine their detailed molecular structure. For example, it can be used to more effectively identify disease biomarkers that allow for early detection.Ion mobility spectrometry is a proven technique that separates ions by their size, shape and charge. The SELECT SERIES Cyclic IMS takes ion mobility to a new level, replacing the traditional linear ion mobility region with a novel compact cyclic device. Ions traverse around the cyclic region and with every pass greater ion mobility resolution is achieved. In addition, the advanced technology enables the unique ability to perform ion mobility selection for ion mobility/ion mobility and IMSn experiments.The new instrument will be used by researchers at Aston University and across the Midland Innovation consortium to answer complex biological questions.Andrew Pitt, Professor of Pharmaceutical Chemistry & Chemical Biology, Aston University said: “We are delighted to have this new technology in our lab here at Aston; it will provide us and other researchers in the Midlands with a step change in how we conduct our research.
Founded in 1895 and a University since 1966, Aston is a long established university led by its three main beneficiaries – students, business and the professions, and our region and society. Aston University is located in Birmingham and at the heart of a vibrant city and the campus houses all the university’s academic, social and accommodation facilities for our students. Professor Alec Cameron is the Vice Chancellor & Chief Executive.
Waters Corporation (NYSE: WAT), the world’s leading specialty measurement company, has pioneered chromatography, mass spectrometry and thermal analysis innovations serving the life, materials and food sciences for more than 60 years. With approximately 7,200 employees worldwide, Waters operates directly in 35 countries, including 15 manufacturing facilities, and with products available in more than 100 countries.
