Automatic production of high-purity eluents
  • Use with Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ ICS-5000+ HPIC™, ICS-6000, and ICS-2100 systems
  • Use for Isocratic or gradient separations
  • Use Dionex EGC 400 cartridges only for dual EGC mode on the Dionex ICS-6000 HPIC system for complex carbohydrate analyses
  • Obtain outstanding run-to-run reproducibility week after week
  • Eliminate acid and base handling
  • Reduce pump maintenance and increase lifetime; the pump only encounters deionized water
  • Use with a broad range of flow rates typically employed for standard bore to capillary columns
  • Use with high pressure ion chromatography systems with pressures up to 5000 psi (34.5MPa, Dionex EGC Capillary and EGC 500 only)

  • Dionex KOH, NaOH and LiOH cartridges support a maximum of 25% methanol
  • Dionex K2CO3 and MSA cartridges are not solvent compatible
  • Dionex EGC (Capillary) cartridges support a concentration range of 0.1–200mM at 0.010mL/min and a flow rate range of 1-30µL/min (0.001-0.030mL/min)
  • Dionex EGC-KOH (Capillary) cartridge supports a maximum of 25% methanol
  • Dionex EGC-MSA (Capillary) cartridge is not solvent compatible

Dual EGC mode for complex carbohydrates

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.
