Quality Control Reference Materials
Benchmarking for repeat performance, higher uptime, and faster troubleshooting
Reduce repeat runs from questionable data by evaluating and benchmarking your HPLC, UHPLC, UPLC, or LC-MS chromatography system before analyzing critical analytes with Waters Quality Control (QC) Reference Materials. With consistent use , Waters QC Reference Materials will help you achieve confidence in your results, reduce troubleshooting and re-run time, and compare cross-lab results.
The Waters QC Reference Material portfolio is a unique collection of specifically formulated standards and mixtures that are ready to use. Regardless of your lab type, Waters recommends benchmarking a new chromatographic system prior to usage with a QC Reference Material to ensure the system is in good working order. To ensure confidence in your results, run and save your initial results, then continue comparing the QC Reference Material results to the previous benchmark before running critical assays or changing any hardware, columns, or mobile phases.
- Achieve confidence in results with the ability to trend system performance
- Reduce variability, rework, and paperwork
- Improve data acceptance and compliance across sites globally
- Easily and quickly understand your LC or MS system health
- Acceptable for use on a variety of columns and systems under different conditions
- Save time with ready-to-use mixes made in Waters ISO 9001, ISO 17025, and ISO 34 accredited facility
Recommended Use: To benchmark a chromatographic system prior to system usage to ensure it is in good working order.
Reversed-Phase QC Reference Material for routine performance of complex assays
Waters Reversed-Phase QC Reference Material is designed for use with any chromatographic systems containing a UV detector. It is intended to be used as a system benchmarking standard. The Reversed-Phase QC Reference Material is significantly more complex than the Neutrals QC Reference Material in that it contains a void marker, neutral, acidic, and basic compounds which could be challenging to separate. It is designed to provide this complexity and is appropriate when complex assays are routinely performed. The Reversed-Phase QC Reference Material is adaptable to a wide variety of separation methods.
Neutrals QC Reference Material for chromatographic systems with UV detectors
Waters Neutrals QC Reference Material is designed for use with any chromatographic systems containing a UV detector. It is intended to be used as a system benchmarking standard. It is extremely versatile and appropriate for a wide variety of column chemistries and dimensions, and system hardware. The mix contains only neutral compounds. This reference material is adaptable to a wide variety of separation methods.
LCMS QC Reference Material for high-performance MS systems
Waters LCMS QC Reference Material is intended for use as a system benchmarking standard. This extremely versatile nine component mix provides a comprehensive reference standard for LC-MS or mass spectrometry (MS) instrumentation with a wide variety of conditions and methods.
HILIC QC Reference Material for UV and MS chromatographic systems and HILIC columns
Waters HILIC QC Reference Material is intended to be used as a system benchmarking standard. This four component mix contains an un-retained void marker, a polar neutral compound, and two polar basic compounds. Waters HILIC QC Reference Material provides a stable chromatographic separation for HILIC columns and was specifically designed as a batch test standard for ACQUITY UPLC BEH HILIC Columns.
Preparative Chromatography Mix for preparative or purifications systems
Evaluate and benchmark your chromatography prep or purification system with UV or MS before analysis of critical material with Waters Preparative Chromatography Mix Standard. The Preparative Chromatography Standard includes a void marker, neutral, acidic, and basic compounds. It can be used with a variety of column chemistries and dimensions, and system hardware.
QDa QC Reference Material for Waters ACQUITY QDa Detector
