Our continuing leadership in chromatography helps us create powerful solutions to increase productivity for the industries that shape the world.

Company Description

Our continuing leadership in chromatography helps us create powerful solutions to increase productivity for the industries that shape the world. Dedicated to perfection in chemical analysis, we empower scientists to quickly separate, isolate, and identify chemical components, from simple ions in water to the complex molecules in human tissue. The scope of Dionex technology consistently expands and evolves to meet our customer needs. From our watershed introduction of ion chromatography (IC) more than 30 years ago to our current breakthroughs in ultrahigh-performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) and capillary IC, Dionex defines the leading edge of the chromatographic separation sciences.

Markets Served

Dionex products are used extensively in environmental analysis and by pharmaceutical and biosciences, chemical and petrochemical, food and beverage, power generation and electronics industries, and research and governmental institutions around the world. Dionex works extensively with the US EPA, ASTM, FDA, AOAC, ISO, DIN, and many other international standards organizations to develop methods for high quality analysis.

Major Products/Services

Dionex is a leader in chromatography with 30-plus years of research and innovation in IC, HPLC, and UHPLC systems. The IC offerings range from basic systems with patented chemical suppression to RFlC™ systems with electrolytic suppression and sample preparation. The RFIC systems, by providing Eluent Generation (RFIC-EG™) and Eluent Regeneration (RFIC-ER™), have redefined IC resulting in solutions that are more powerful, simpler to use, and provide reliable results. The HPLC offerings have been expanded by adding UHPLC capabilities to all of the award-winning UltiMate® 3000 systems. Our HPLC and UHPLC systems feature rapid separation liquid chromatography (RSLC) for high performance analysis; RSLCnano for high performance proteomics analysis; BioLC for biocompatible analysis of large biomolecules; and semipreparative and conventional HPLC and UHPLC applications, as well as an extensive range of detectors.

Both IC and LC product lines offer state-of-the-art performance with Chromeleon® software, the market-leading chromatography data system. The wide variety of LC, IC, and Bio columns meets any analytical application. For example, Acclaim® columns packed with reversed-phase, polar embedded phases, and specialty phases optimized for RSLC and HPLC; IC and RFIC columns for use with hydroxide and carbonate eluents; IonPac® polymeric columns for ion exchange, ion exclusion, and reversed-phase ion pairing and ion suppression; and a variety of columns for proteins, peptides, carbohydrates, nucleic acids, and more.

For sample preparation, the Accelerated Solvent Extraction (ASE® ) systems use elevated solvent temperature and pressures to provide accelerated extraction of solid and semisolid matrices, and the powerful AutoTrace® 280 SPE instrument automates solid-phase extraction with high reliability and precision.


Dionex maintains a worldwide profile with subsidiaries in the US, Austria, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, France, Germany, lndia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, The Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. Distributors for Dionex also operate in Central and South America, South Africa, Asia, the Middle East, and elsewhere.
