科学家的目标是,在AB SCIEX公司TripleTOF™5600上开发新的测试方法,用于全面筛查未知有机物

  加利福尼亚州福斯特市,2010年12月8日—— AB SCIEX公司,生命科学分析技术的全球领先者,今日宣布与欧洲最重要的供水和水处理集团——Landeswasserversorgung供水公司合作,来改进饮用水中污染物鉴定的方法。在Langenau公司水处理部门工作的科学家们正在使用新一代质谱技术——AB SCIEX TripleTOF 5600质谱仪,来开发新的测试方法,并可为全球的测试机构使用,获得水质分析的更好结果。 

  此项合作是对连续出现的饮用水污染问题的回应;合作还加强了对于增加下述污染物信息的需求:即对于在水质分析中那些非典型目标物、及用现有技术很容易被忽视的污染物。Landeswasserversorgung供水系统公司在德国南部向约三百万人提供饮用水,为了更好地服务于公众利益,他们用AB SCIEX公司质谱技术分析多瑙河的水,并由此检测出更宽范围的有害化学物质。

  为从通用的水中未知有机物筛查方法中获得关键信息,德国供水公司安装了AB Sciex公司TripleTOF™5600系统,这是生命科学产业界最快,最灵敏的高分辨质谱系统,可进行高性能的定性和定量分析。他们将使用这种创新的系统开发新的方法,来重现性地、系统地扩展可筛查的污染物范围。TripleTOF™5600系统是一套独一无二的系统,同时具有最高的实用性灵敏度、高速度和高分辨。科学家们使用该系统可从样品中获得更高质量的信息,并比以前的各种可能的方法更容易。

  分析和方法开发将在德国的Landeswasserversorgung供水设施机构进行。科学家们还将验证这些方法,来节省其它水质检测实验室的时间和花费。本月初,Landeswasserversorgung供水公司在其现场研讨会(Langenauer Wasserforum)上,介绍了其战略的细节和进展,包括其与AB Sciex公司的合作,出席此次研讨会的有上千位欧洲水测试专家,他们来了解更好的水质分析方法。

  Landeswasserversorgung同AB Sciex公司有成功的合作历史,比如用QTRAP技术开发了水分析中目标物定性和定量分析方法。

  Walter H. Weber博士,Landeswasserversorgung供水公司的操作控制和研究实验室主任表示:

  “提高对饮用水质量和水源的控制需要强大的分析工具。我们与AB Sciex公司的合作,为我们提供了最好的机会,利用最新的技术获得水中污染物分析中最准确、最快速的结果。使用AB SCIEX TripleTOF 5600平台来开发新的分析方法,我们将能比从前获取更多的信息,用于水测试中连续的过程分析,并监控污染水平的变化趋势。”

  Joe Anacleto,AB SCIEX公司应用市场和临床研究业务部副总裁和总经理表示:

   “对于饮用水质量负责的社会责任,使科学家们认识到需要使用创新技术来改善结果。TripleTOF 5600系统是一项突破性的技术进步,在未来几年的水中未知污染物筛查中,相比其它技术,TripleTOF 5600将有潜力做更多先进的筛查工作。作为一个可信赖的合作伙伴,Landeswasserversorgung供水公司又一次选择与我们合作,因为他们看到了TripleTOF可以为他们做什么,来帮助他们加强其在水污染检测方面的领导地位。”

AB SCIEX Collaborates with Major German Water Supply Company to Improve Identification of Contaminants in Drinking Water

Scientists aim to develop new test methods on the AB SCIEX TripleTOF™ 5600 System for general unknown screening of organic compounds

  Foster City, Calif. – December 8, 2010 – AB SCIEX, a global leader in life science analytical technologies, today announced a collaboration with Landeswasserversorgung Water Supply, one of the foremost water supply and treatment organizations in Europe, to improve the identification of contaminants in drinking water. Scientists at the waterworks in Langenau are using a new generation of mass spectrometry technology – the AB SCIEX TripleTOF 5600 System – to develop new test methods that can be adopted by testing facilities around the world to obtain better results for water analysis.

  This collaboration responds to the continued issue of tainted drinking water and addresses the need to increase information about contaminants that are not typically targeted in water testing and can easily go undetected by current technologies. To better serve the public interest, Landeswasserversorgung Water Supply, which provides drinking water to approximately 3 million people in southern Germany, is analyzing water from the Danube River with AB SCIEX mass spectrometry technology through which a wider range of harmful chemicals can be detected.

  To produce this critical information from general unknown screening of organic compounds in water, this German water supply company has installed the AB SCIEX TripleTOF™ 5600 System, which is the life science industry’s fastest and most sensitive high-resolution mass spectrometer for high-performance qualitative and quantitative analysis. They will utilize this innovative system to develop new methods to expand the range of contaminants that can be screened in repeatable, systematic ways. The TripleTOF™ 5600 System is the only system that combines the highest available sensitivity and speed with high resolution. Scientists can use the system to generate better quality information from samples more easily than previously possible.

  The analysis and method development will take place at Landeswasserversorgung Water Supply’s facilities in Germany. The scientists will also validate the methods to save time and expense for other water testing laboratories. Earlier this month, Landeswasserversorgung Water Supply presented details of its strategies and progress, including its partnership with AB SCIEX, at its on-site symposium ‘Langenauer Wasserforum’, which was attended by hundreds of European water testing experts to learn about better ways to analyze water.

  Landeswasserversorgung has a successful history of working with AB SCIEX, including past development of targeted methods with QTRAP technology to integrate quantitative and qualitative analysis for water testing.

  Walter H. Weber, Ph.D., Head of Laboratory for Operation Control and Research,

  Landeswasserversorgung Water Supply

  “Improving control over the quality of drinking water and raw water resources requires powerful analytical tools. Our collaboration with AB SCIEX gives us the best opportunity to use the latest technology for the most accurate and fastest results for water contaminant analysis. By developing new analytical methods on the AB SCIEX TripleTOF 5600 platform, we will be better equipped to produce more information than previously possible that we can use in the continuous process of analyzing water and monitoring trends in contamination levels.”

  Joe Anacleto, Vice President and General Manager of the Applied Markets and Clinical Research Business, AB SCIEX

  “The community of scientists responsible for the quality of drinking water recognizes the need to use new innovation in technology to improve results. The TripleTOF 5600 System is a groundbreaking advancement that has the potential to do more to advance screening for unknown contaminants in water than any other technology in years. As a trusted partner, Landeswasserversorgung Water Supply chose to work with us once again because they are seeing what TripleTOF can do for them to help enhance their position as a leader in water contaminant testing.”
