Case Studies

A regional water authority based in the United States operates numerous wells, water mains, and pump stations, servicing the drinking water needs of more than 350,000 residential and business customers, totaling more than 1,000,000 people. To satisfy stringent local, state, and federal regulations for water contaminant levels and provide its customers with a product of the highest possible quality, the client operates a state certified drinking water testing laboratory. To increase sample throughput for the EPA prescribed LC/MS/MS identification of herbicide degradates, the client installed the Waters ACQUITY UltraPerformance LC (UPLC) system on the front end of the Quattro micro API. With the ACQUITY UPLC system, the laboratory has successfully addressed immediate regulatory and technological challenges related to the identification of drinking water contaminants and significantly improved workflow.
