Thermo Scientific Dionex ICS-6000 HPIC system – Τhe freedom to explore

When solving ion analysis challenges, there are sometimes more questions than answers. The ability to develop and run different methods for a single sample or for different samples is increasingly important for analytical laboratories. A highly flexible ion chromatography (IC) system provides you with the freedom to develop, explore, and run different methods simultaneously.

The Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ ICS-6000 HPIC™ system is a truly modular, highly configurable, high-performance system. The robust system design enables operation at up to 5000 psi and produces consistent, reliable results. As a top-of-the line ion chromatography system, it is designed for users who want to push the boundaries of what is possible in ion analysis.

Accelerate Your Productivity

The Dionex ICS-6000 HPIC system offers a suite of features to get you from sample to results faster and keep your laboratory running seamlessly, including:

  • Single- and dual-channel system configuration options
  • Finger-tight connections that minimize dead volume and make connections easier
  • Automated tracking of the usage and performance of IC consumables
  • Automated eluent preparation using Reagent-Free Ion Chromatography-Eluent Generation (RFIC-EG™) technology
  • Tablet control of the IC system, to easily monitor sample runs
  • An optional, always ready capillary IC configuration to perform 24/7 sample analysis
  • IC columns featuring 4 µm particles to optimize chromatographic efficiency with shorter sample run times and/or improved resolution

Explore the Possibilities

The Dionex ICS-6000 HPIC system is available in a variety of configurations, including:

  • Standard bore, microbore, and capillary formats
  • Multiple, flexible detector options

Discover Ion Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry

The Dionex ICS-6000 HPIC system is compatible with single quadrupole, triple quadrupole, and high-resolution accurate-mass (HRAM) Thermo Scientific™ Orbitrap™ mass analyzer-based mass spectrometers for performing powerful ion chromatography-mass spectrometry (IC-MS) analyses.

Solve Complex Analysis Challenges

The Dionex ICS-6000 HPIC system can address the full range of IC analysis applications. It is suitable for techniques from 2-D ion chromatography for trace-level analysis to high performance anion-exchange chromatography with pulsed amperometric detection (HPAE-PAD) for complex carbohydrate analyses.
