MILFORD, Mass., Jan. 10, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Waters Corporation (NYSE: WAT) today introduced its Waters® Biopharmaceutical System Solution at WCBP, the 15th Symposium on the Interface of Regulatory and Analytical Sciences for Biotechnology Health Products in Washington, D.C. The new Biopharmaceutical System brings together UPLC®/MS characterization technology with UNIFI™ Scientific Information System, an industry first comprehensive software solution that uniquely unites all aspects of biotherapeutic analyses and workflows for high-resolution analytics across the development process continuum.
The combination of UltraPerformance Liquid Chromatography®, mass spectrometry, and bioinformatics technologies results in efficient flow of data and information and conforms to biopharmaceutical quality guidelines and regulations.
The Biopharmaceutical System Solution includes:
"Waters is now the first company to offer biopharmaceutical scientists a total system for protein characterization using high-end mass spectrometry that supports good manufacturing practices regulations (GMP) that biopharmaceutical companies are required to comply with," said Jeff Mazzeo, Director of Biopharmaceutical Business Operations for Waters Division. "In addition to being able to operate in a GxP compliant environment, the new Biopharmaceutical System allows customers to extract and share the maximum amount of information. For example, when a scientist develops a peptide map in the discovery laboratory, all of the methods and reports generated can be shared with colleagues down the line in the quality control (QC) laboratory leading to significant productivity gains. UNIFI is the common platform that allows customers to share information in a much more efficient manner than previously possible."
Focused on task-specific workflow design, the Biopharmaceutical System features automated data processing and simplified results validation. Leveraging UNIFI's architecture, the intuitive user interface can be configured for the roles and capabilities of the scientists throughout an organization. Critical to biopharmaceutical organizations is reliance on an analytical system that supports GMP and compliance tools, such as electronic signatures and user authentication, all with underlying secure database technology. Lastly, this Biopharmaceutical System is scalable to use as a workstation with the ability to expand to workgroup and enterprise deployments.
With the scalability and flexibility built into the system, customers can anticipate the following benefits from the Biopharmaceutical System:
