Advancing IC science for future impact -  Global Ion Chromatography virtual symposium, October 20-21, 27

Advancing IC Science for Future Impact:
Welcome to the Global Ion Chromatography Virtual Symposium

The future begins with innovation. For 45 years, innovative Thermo Scientific Dionex Ion Chromatography (IC) systems have enabled extraordinary breakthroughs and discoveries. Laboratory professionals like you have been propelling science forward with reliable, reproducible analyses based on Dionex solutions. Confidence drives your passion for excellence and exploration every day.

Your scientific talent, combined with our exceptional IC innovations, continues to deliver impact for the world’s scientific community, empowering health and safety in society and spearheading positive environmental developments.

Together, let us advance IC science for greater future impact. Because we can’t meet in person, we’re meeting virtually – with events happening over three days to conveniently engage all global regions and time zones. One day for Asia, one for Europe and one for the Americas (although you’re welcome to join the symposium any day to post questions and view sessions of interest).

Register now

Attend the virtual event to:

  • Hear from industry experts about the impact of ion chromatography on applied sciences
  • Learn how IC is helping your colleagues achieve new advancements
  • Raise topics pertaining to ion chromatography and its application, which will be addressed by a panel of IC experts in the forum
  • Browse resources to see how IC can be applied in your lab

A Closer Look: Event Days and Targeted Regions

Wherever you reside, we’re making this valuable live symposium easily accessible during a time that’s convenient for you.

While our symposium and 3-hour daily content has been designed to span various regional time zones, participants can join sessions on any day and time. Review the various daily agendas for specific topics and times.

October 20 – Ideal for Asia, Australia, India

The IC Symposium will kick off with a plenary lecture by Dr. Joachim Weiss on 45 years of ion chromatography and its impact on industries. There will also be presentations from fellow scientists in Asia Pacific as well as an interactive forum with industry experts to answer your questions on IC in pharma and biopharma topics and IC applications and technology. Access technical resources and explore IC offerings.

October 21 – Ideal for Europe, Middle East & Africa

Building on the first day’s content, this day will cover the future of IC. It also features tips and tricks, presentations from Academic researchers from University of Oxford and University College Cork, facilitated forum with industry experts to answer your IC questions on food and beverage topics and IC applications and technology and access to technical resources and IC offerings.

October 27 – Ideal for the Americas

This day will highlight 45 years of ion chromatography and its impact, along with three customer presentations. It also provides a facilitated expert forum covering questions related to environmental topics and IC applications and technology, opportunities for Q&A, and access to technical resources and explore IC offerings.
