Waters Corporation (Milford, Massachusetts) has donated a Synapt mass spectrometry system to the Fondation du Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Sherbrooke (CHUS, Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada). The $1.1 million (Canadian) gift is the result of a partnership between Waters and CHUS and is important for the creation of a center for clinical mass spectrometry at the hospital for screening, clinical diagnosis, and assessment of treatments for specific hereditary diseases. The hospital acquired a first mass spectrometer from Waters — a Quattro micro system — in 2005, which distinguished CHUS as the first university hospital in Quebec with MS capability in a clinical setting.
