Thermo ICS-5000 IC
Ion chromatography is a specialized form of high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). For the Thermo ICS-5000 IC, instead of particle size or chemical affinity, the ionic charge associated with the molecule being analyzed is the primary factor in the separation. Mixed ions have to be measured separately, but the Center has both cation and anion detection sets available. Separations time of 15-20 minutes per sample are standard, but full automation allows researchers to utilize the system 24 hours a day.
CEST staff members are available to consult on what separation columns are most often successfully used with specific separations types.
