Ion Chromatography

Ion chromatography, a form of liquid chromatography, separates ions and polar molecules based on their interaction with a resin. This process works on amino acids, small nucleotides and proteins. There are two types of ion chromatography processes: anion-exchange and cation-exchange. While these processes use specific column packing to separate ions, the instrument flow path is identical to liquid chromatography.

There are several trends that are driving product development in ion chromatography: Capillary IC (lower flow rates at trace cations and/anions), higher pressures, food safety analysis and pharmaceutical analysis. IDEX Health & Science can help keep you at the forefront of product development for use in the ion chromatography space.

We offer the following components for ion chromatography systems:
