Prevent baseline shift, increase sensitivity, improve resolution, and ensure consistent peak integration by using eluent generation. A range of Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ EGC Cartridges are available for the production of hydroxide, carbonate, bicarbonate and methanesulfonic acid eluents. Eluent generation eliminates the need to handle acids and bases, which are traditionally required for the preparation of IC eluents, and allows chromatographers to run a full range of gradient and isocratic separations more effectively than hand-made eluents.
Automatically generate eluent gradients to analyze complex carbohydrates by operating your Dionex ICS-6000 HPIC system in Dual Eluent Generation Cartridge (Dual EGC) mode. This novel option uses a methanesulfonic acid (MSA) EGC 400 cartridge and a potassium hydroxide (KOH) EGC 400 cartridge in series with each other to generate the extremely reproducible and accurate KOH/KMSA eluent gradient needed for analyzing complex carbohydrates such as oligosaccharides.
