For the third time in two years, the ACQUITY Ultra Performance LC (UPLC(TM)) System is cited in an award for its innovation. The R&D 100 Award singles out the top 100 most technologically significant innovations known to industry, government, and academia.

According to Tim Studt, editor-in-chief of R&D Magazine, sponsors of this award, " Judges look for significant technological improvements - not incremental - and the 'Wow' factor that makes a product unusual, more interesting or clearly superior to what's currently available."

Judges are recruited from a pool of professional consultants, university faculty and industrial researchers. They recognized the ACQUITY UPLC(TM) System for achieving new levels in performance and efficiency.

Art Caputo, President, Waters Division, states, "Winning this award validates Waters' leadership position as an innovator in analytical instrumentation, software, chemistry and support in terms of changing the way scientists work.
