Suppression Unravelled - Cost Saving, Sensitivity and Robustness

The suppressor.  That small magic device in your ion chromatography (IC) system that seems to do so much work.  Do you really know what’s happening in that little box? Why are there bubbles? Bubbles are bad, right?   This webinar will be unravelling the suppressor, what actually happens inside, why do you need it and why are there different types available?  We will also be talking you through how to look after it and what to look out for when something isn’t quite right.  Understanding suppression is the key to understanding ion chromatography!

Speaker: Daniel Talbot, Ion Chromatography Applications Specialist, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Hemel Hempstead, United Kingdom
