Concentrate samples for lower detection limits

Concentrate samples for lower detection limits and increased sensitivity

Used primarily for high-purity water analysis, Thermo Scientific™ IonPac™ and IonSwift™ concentrator columns retain ions from a measured volume of aqueous sample matrix, thereby concentrating the analyte species and lowering detection limits. Concentrator columns can increase sensitivity by two to five orders of magnitude when compared to standard sample loops.

IC anion concentrator columns

Dionex™ AC-ER Anion Concentrator for RFIC-ER Use this general purpose, low-dead-volume anion concentrator column to maximize the number of injections between eluent changes when using an RFIC-ER™ system. Use for a host of applications on RFIC-ER systems, including analysis of bromate to 5 ppb in drinking water, and analysis of common anions in ethanol.
