Waters Corporation and BioCity, the UK's largest bioscience incubator company, have announced an agreement to launch an open access analytical laboratory. Located in the BioHub at Alderley Park, the laboratory will offer Waters’ state-of-the-art liquid chromatography (LC), mass spectrometry (MS) and informatics technologies, along with a suite of analytical platforms, to scientists working in the pharmaceutical and life science industries.

“Engaging with scientists in the BioHub at Alderley Park provides a unique opportunity to work and partner with customers, given the geographic proximity of Waters’ Wilmslow location. We expect that this close relationship will also give us deeper insight into customer needs and challenges,” said Richard Ladd, senior director, pharmaceutical business, Waters Division. “The diversity and strength of science which is being done at Alderley Park matches well with Waters’ strategy of purposeful innovation, and our strong emphasis on health and life sciences.”

Scheduled to open in early 2016, the laboratory will be resourced with many of Waters’ latest technology offerings, including ACQUITY QDa, ACQUITY H-Class, ACQUITY UPC2and ACQUITY PDA Detector, along with the expertise required to leverage the power of these instrumentation platforms. The laboratory will also include a nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) system provided by Manchester Science Partnerships, the owners of Alderley Park.

“This is great news for the businesses based at BioHub. It adds to BioCity's formula of providing emerging growing companies with access to the tools, technology and knowledge they need to succeed – be it people, property or technology,” said Glenn Crocker, CEO, BioCity Group. “It is great to be working with such a forward-thinking partner as Waters Corporation, who fully embrace our approach and are helping us to augment further still the array of resources available at Alderley Park."
