Waters Corporation obtains rights to mass spectrometry invented at Purdue

August 13, 2018

Waters Corp. (NYSE: WAT), Prosolia Inc. and the Purdue Research Foundation announced Monday (July 23) that Waters acquired exclusive rights to Desorption Electrospray Ionization (DESI) technology for all mass spectrometry applications from Prosolia and PRF. "The acquisition of DESI technology bolsters Waters' portfolio of mass spectrometry imaging innovations, a rapidly expanding MS technique for biomedical research and related applications," said Chris O'Connell, chairman and chief executive officer of Waters Corp. "DESI mass spectrometry imaging provides complementary and actionable data when compared to classical histopathology imaging technologies with major advantages in analyzing the molecular fingerprint within a sample, thus delivering deeper biological insights. Ultimately, these insights will lead to better understanding of disease and enable the development of new, more effective medical therapies."
