Chromotography tool to streamline ion analysis

Supplier of analytical instruments Thermo Fisher Scientific has released a chromatography instrument that it says will improve reliability and efficiency by streamlining ion analysis and expanding analytical testing capabilities for ionic and small polar compounds.

The product, called the Thermo Scientific Dionex Inuvion Ion Chromatography (IC) system, aims to make ion analysis simpler and more intuitive for labs of all sizes. The instrument is designed to be easily reconfigurable, providing those who require determination of ionic and small polar compounds with one instrument with which to conduct ion analysis.

As safety concerns increase around the food and water supply, scientists will require versatile and sensitive instruments for adequate testing and analysis. The Dionex Inuvion IC system equips environmental, industrial, municipal water, and food and beverage labs with the necessary equipment to determine ionic contaminants in water. The technology also helps identify corrosive contaminants in oil and gas, as well as provide quality assurance and quality control of small ionic compounds in food, beverage, and pharmaceuticals.

The Dionex Inuvion system helps meet labs’ needs to operate more efficiently with easily configurable workflows and a small footprint, according to the company. The flexible platform can be tailored to meet current analytical requirements and  extend IC capabilities to adapt to changing sample types and workflow requirements in the future.

Lidija Raicevic, vice president and general manager of Ion Chromatography and Sample Preparation at Thermo Fisher Scientific said: “As the originator of ion chromatography, we continue to lead innovation in all areas of instrumentation and column chemistry to meet our customers’ growing needs for better resolution, faster results, and intuitive lab experience,” said 

The Dionex Inuvion IC system features  advanced pump technology that the company claims improves speed, quality, and reproducibility.
