Inline and Offline solutions to remove interfering substances in your matrix

Remove interfering substances from your sample for ion chromatography analysis

Need to remove matrix interferences such as phenolics, metals, cations, anions, or hydrophobic substances that interfere with your ion chromatography (IC) applications? Here is an array of automated (inline) and benchtop (offline) solutions. These solutions contain resins that are specific for removing the substance interfering with your IC analysis.

Dionex Guardcap Vial Caps

Dionex Guardcap Vial Caps

Thermo Scientific Dionex Guardcap Vial Caps work with 5mL Dionex PolyVials in the Dionex AS-DV autosampler to provide an automated inline sample preparation and filtration solution. The Dionex AS-DV holds 50 vials that can be sampled in any order, and programmed to take multiple samples from each vial. The vial design eliminates the need for an external sampling pump. Two versions of the vial are currently available:

Dionex Guardcap H Vial Caps

Thermo Scientific Dionex Guardcap H vial caps are embedded with Dionex OnGuard H resin to automatically remove alkaline earth and transition metals, neutralize high pH samples, and filter particulates.

Dionex Guardcap Na Vial Caps

Thermo Scientific Dionex Guardcap Na vial caps are embedded with Dionex OnGuard Na resin to automatically remove alkaline earth and transition metals and filter particulates without changing the sample pH. Since sample pH remains unchanged, Dionex Guardcap Na vial caps are ideal for treating samples that contain pH-sensitive analytes (e.g., nitrite).
