THERMO Scientific Dionex ICS-6000 HPIC system

You have the freedom to explore in ion chromatography

Get significant increases in resolution and throughput using the world’s first modular ion chromatography (IC) system capable of operation up to 5000 psi. The Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ ICS-6000 Standard Bore and Microbore System can operate continuously at up to 5000 psi when configured as a Reagent-Free™ IC (RFIC™) system. Get higher resolution using smaller particle size (4µm) columns, faster run times without sacrificing needed resolution using higher flow rates and 150mm columns, or higher resolution with standard flow rates and 250mm columns. The ability to configure this flexible, modular system for an unmatched variety of applications.

Outstanding sensitivity plus convenience
Excellent sensitivity, stability, and ease of use
Enhanced baseline stability and sensitivity with top-of-the-line flow rate accuracy, eluent generator electronics stability, and conductivity cell temperature control

Optimized peak resolution with a choice of isocratic and electrolytic gradient separations
Flexible support for standard bore (1–3mm i.d.) and microbore (3–7mm i.d.) columns
Wide variety of Thermo Scientific standard and microbore columns
Compatible with New 4µm Columns

Separations twice as fast without compromising resolution
Significantly increased resolution from current methodologies at increased flow rates
Higher resolution and dramatically better performance using smaller particle size (4µm) columns
Faster run times with higher flow rates using 150mm columns, or higher resolution with standard flow rates using 250mm columns
