Tough metal-sensitive compounds? Not anymore.
Non-specific adsorption of metal-sensitive compounds is an unpredictable challenge, leading to long system passivation times, chromatography with large RSDs, and broad peaks that can be difficult to detect. The ACQUITY Premier System is built with proven ACQUITY technology, which offers actual UPLC performance, ultra-low dispersion, and high resolution.
Designed with MaxPeak HPS Technology, the ACQUITY Premier System improves peak shape and reproducibility for the most challenging metal-sensitive compounds.
Boost method efficiency with UPLC technology.
Take your methods to the next performance level by leveraging the benefits of Ultra Performance Liquid Chromatography (UPLC) technology to improve your existing HPLC methods. By scaling your methods to UPLC, your laboratory will benefit from the combination of increased resolution, sensitivity, and speed that comes with modern small-particle chemistries.
Along with fast UPLC analysis times, the ACQUITY Premier System reduces the need for system passivation to optimize assays for metal-sensitive compounds. Take your assays to the next level of efficiency, with faster analysis times and reduced system downtime, decreased reagent costs, and, ultimately, improved lab productivity.
Power-up recovery and sensitivity
The ACQUITY Premier System minimizes metal-sensitive analyte loss, improving recovery and detection limits. Couple the ACQUITY Premier System with a Waters mass spectrometer to confidently identify and quantify unknown compounds in complex samples and confirm trace components at the lowest possible levels.
Reproducible results with a reliable partner
The ACQUITY Premier System and ACQUITY Premier Columns are holistically designed to reduce analyte losses and improve repeatability for various metal-sensitive analytes interacting with metal surfaces in conventional LC technology.
Waters also delivers world-renowned services and support tailored to optimize laboratory productivity while addressing budget realities. Our offerings help you maintain peak system performance, minimize downtime, address scientific application challenges, and support stringent compliance requirements.

- The system is in excellent cosmetic condition.
- SQ Detector ref# 186005832 serial # LCA531 manufactured July 2015
- PDA 186015032 serial C11UPD867A
- Column manager 800000238 serial D10UPM795R
- Sample Manager 186015006 serial F11UPA122M

This system did not have a computer, so we could not test the SQD due to a lack of drivers. Also, as pictured, it does not come with a vacuum pump or gas trap. The front end powered up and connected without issue, minus the column manager battery backup error.
