Ion chromatography system wins award

July 4, 2011

The Thermo Scientific Dionex ICS-5000 capillary ion chromatography system has been named an R&D 100 award winner by an independent judging panel and the editors of R&D Magazine.

The Thermo Scientific Dionex ICS-5000 capillary ion chromatography system has been named an R&D 100 award winner by an independent judging panel and the editors of R&D Magazine. This award recognizes the system as one of the 100 most technologically significant products introduced the past year.

The company describes the system as a true walk-up IC, meaning that is always on and always ready for use. It features capillary IC and Reagent-Free IC capabilities, and is reported to enable continuous operation for months at a time, using 5 L of deionized water per year, and significantly reducing waste. According to the company, as the system is always on, no time is wasted on daily start-up and calibration procedures so that analysts can run samples at any time, which increases overall throughput.

IC Cube cartridges combine all capillary consumables, and the company claims that advanced techniques, such as two-dimensional IC, are easy to set up and use. The system also supports all legacy IC methods using traditional standard-bore and microbore columns, and it offers multiple detection options (conductivity, amperometry, UV/vis and MS).

The system also received a 2010 GIT Innovations Award Bronze Star.
