Waters Corp. Expands Xevo Line with Xevo TQ-XS Launch

Laboratory analytical instrument and software developer Waters Corporation WAT expanded its portfolio of Xevo mass spectrometers with the launch of Xevo TQ-XS mass spectrometer, which is arguably the most sensitive instrument of its kind in the market. The company believes this new device, which will start getting shipped in Jun 2016, will improve the experience of analytical chemists even without sufficient experience in mass spectrometry.

Waters Corp. has engineered Xevo TQ-XS mass spectrometers by incorporating its highly successful technologies like XDR Detector and UniSpray. The latest offering from Waters also includes a variety of features like the new StepWave XS ion guide and tool-free atmospheric pressure ionization probes.

Some of the noteworthy benefits of using the Xevo TQ-XS mass spectrometer include the ability to quantify challenging compounds at trace levels, perform routine maintenance under two minutes, quantify sample compounds across varying concentration and conduct ionization of a wider range of analytes in a single chromatographic run.

Given the present market scenario, Waters Corp. believes that its latest offering will gain decent market traction. This is because UPLC-MS quantitative studies presently form the cornerstone of every major decision taken by scientists. Clients need to conduct reproducible quantitative studies and obtain lower limits of quantification by using analytical instruments. Thanks to the new Xevo TQ-XS mass spectrometer that brings some unprecedented reliability, reproducibility and performance in the industry.

Waters Corp.’s Xevo product line which includes Xevo TQD, Xevo TQ-S micro and Xevo G2-XS QTof, has proved to be one of the fundamental money-spinning offerings from the company. Innovative product launches is one of the strengths of the company and it aims to launch a number of products and programs in an effort to boost its revenues in the rest of 2016. Moreover, high sales of advanced mass spectrometry instruments to academic and government labs has strongly supplemented top-line growth over the past few quarters, signaling at bright prospects ahead.

Waters currently carries a Zacks Rank #3 (Hold). Some better-ranked stocks in the sector include Bruker Corporation BRKR, PerkinElmer Inc. PKI and BioTelemetry, Inc. BEAT. All three stocks hold a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
