Each Guardcap AEX vial cap:

  • Saves time and effort vs. traditional offline sample preparation cartridges.
  • Removes up to 800 mg/L anions (e.g., sulfate) from 250 µL of sample.
  • Neutralizes up to 250 µL of 30 mM MSA, HCl, or other monovalent acid.
  • Filters better than 80% of particulate matter greater than 20 µm in diameter.

Obtain Superior Analytical Results with Greatly Reduced Effort
Increase the lifetime of your analytical columns and suppressors by removing anions and particulates that can foul them. Sample preparation is performed inline, within the Dionex Guardcap vial cap, and automated by the autosampler. Dionex Guardcap vial caps can improve the reproducibility of analyses because important parameters such as timing, flow rate, and delivery volume are easily set and controlled by the autosampler.

Convenient and Easy-to-Use
Dionex Guardcap AEX vial caps come in the familiar filter cap format used with Dionex PolyVials. Unlike traditional offline sample preparation cartridges, Dionex Guardcap AEX vial caps require no time-consuming pretreatment procedures prior to use- simply install these functionalized vial caps on your sample vials and your samples are ready for analysis.
