Dionex has won a large order from the National Police Agency (NPA) of Japan. The agency will purchase 51 units of the company’s ICS-3000 ion chromatography system and 51 units of the ICS-2100 ion chromatography system. This order continues the ongoing relationship between the two organizations; the NPA purchased 51 HPLC systems from the company in March 2009.

The new IC systems will be used in police forensic labs throughout Japan for the analysis and identification of forensic evidence collected at crime scenes. Specifically, the ICs are expected to be used for anion/cation/arsenic/cyanide analyses by the NPA’s Chemistry Section in Police Science for various purposes including drug abuse, analysis of toxic substances and chemical terrorism.
