Dionex Integrion HPIC System: An easy solution for routine analysis

Achieve versatile and efficient separations that meet your routine ion analysis demands with the reliable Thermo Scientific Dionex Integrion HPIC system. Its high-pressure ion chromatography (HPIC) capabilities enable faster analysis without compromising data quality. The Dionex Integrion HPIC system is available in two models and a wide range of configurations. It is designed for routine ion chromatography (IC) applications for water, food and beverage, biofuels and pharmaceutical analysis.


Simple plumbing layout

The plumbing layout of this high-pressure ion chromatography system is based on a logical flow path for easy component access in a compact platform with a small physical footprint.

Automated Eluent Generation (EG)

Optional Reagent-Free Ion Chromatography with Eluent Generation (RFIC-EG) combines automated eluent generators and electrolytically regenerated suppressors to create eluents and regenerants.

Inert, reliable components
Inert, nonmetallic PEEK components throughout the Dionex Integrion HPIC system ensure compatibility with corrosive eluents and analyses free from metal contamination. Easy-to-install IC PEEK Viper fittings have low dead volume and require no special training or tools.

Consumables Device Monitor*

The Consumables Device Monitor automatically identifies consumables and maintains a record of their installation, use, and performance metrics on the Dionex Integrion HPIC system, eliminating the necessity for manual consumables tracking.

Wide range of IC columns

The Dionex Integrion HPIC system is compatible with a wide variety of column sizes, including smaller-particle-size 4 µm columns for HPIC capabilities, which provide faster run times and better resolution, to meet the requirements of your applications.  

CDS Software

The Dionex Integrion HPIC system comes with the easy-to-use Thermo Scientific Chromeleon Chromatography Data System (CDS). This software platform provides powerful control and data processing for IC and offers eWorkflows that make all our essential applications easily accessible.
