ACQUITY Arc™ System

HPLC and UHPLC method compatibility at the flip of a switch

The ACQUITY Arc System is a quaternary-based, modern LC system for scientists working with established methods who are looking for the versatility and robustness required to bridge the gap between HPLC and UPLC while continuing to support validated assays.

  • True plug-and-play method compatibility and the ability to switch between HPLC and UHPLC separations at the flip of a switch with Arc Multi-flow path Technology
  • Obtain mass confirmation, without changing the way you work, using the ACQUITY QDa Mass Detector
  • Deploy the benefits of 2.x μm particle columns to boost the chromatographic performance of your methods

On-demand mobile phase creation with Auto•Blend Plus Technology, eliminating the cumbersome and error-prone approach of manual preparation


acquity qda

ACQUITY QDa Mass Detector

Bringing the power of mass detection to chromatographers.

The ACQUITY QDa Detector delivers information-rich mass data to compliment optical detection and enhance the analytical value and productivity of every analysis. It integrates seamlessly into the same workflow, routinely giving you a more complete separation characterization.

Make rapid informed decisions by confirming the presence of components with certainty – even for those with no UV response or similar UV spectral properties, compounds at trace levels or for co-eluting peaks.

Working in harmony with existing chromatography systems, it is pre-optimized to work with your analysis, without the sample-specific or user adjustments typical of traditional mass spectrometers. For the first time, any analytical scientist can routinely generate quality mass spectral data, without the need for any special training or expertise, thus eliminating typical delays waiting for results from specialist analytical service laboratories.


Acquity UPC2


With the ACQUITY UPC2 System, the orthogonal capability of normal-phase LC has been elevated to a mainstream technique: Convergence Chromatography.

  • The chromatographic principles and selectivity of normal-phase LC
  • The ease-of-use and method development simplicity of reversed-phase LC
  • The use of gradients across the widest polarity range
  • Chiral and achiral separations in one system, with unequaled speed and confidence

Unique in its capabilities, the pioneering ACQUITY UPC2 System delivers what the rest of the industry never could – a system, based on the principles of normal-phase LC, with the ease-of-use of reversed-phase LC, and purposefully built for analytical performance, placing convergence chromatography atop the list of separations tools in the kit of all analytical chemists.


Acquity UPLC H-Class Bio FLR


Highest resolution of any quaternary LC system.

With dispersion of less than 10 μL, the ACQUITY UPLC H-Class System delivers the highest resolution of any quaternary LC system in the market.

Achieving true UPLC performance requires that system dispersion (or extra-column band spread) be matched to the peak widths associated with narrowbore columns packed with sub-2-μm particles.  While other systems might be designed for high pressure, it doesn’t mean they’re designed to deliver the sharp peaks associated with UPLC performance and the ACQUITY UPLC H-Class System.
