Ion Chromatography Mass Spectrometry (IC-MS)

Increase the power of IC with MS detection

Utilize mass detection when you need to ensure analytical confidence and dramatically improve the detection capability of your Thermo Scientific Dionex Integrion or ICS-6000 HPIC system. Ion chromatography with mass spectrometry (IC-MS) maximizes the ability to detect and quantify unexpected co-elutions of components and to confirm trace components.

IC-MS systems

Coupling MS with your IC can give you more information from every sample:

  • Higher sensitivity
  • Accurate quantitation
  • Peak confirmation and evaluation of chromatographic peak purity
  • Increased efficiency
Single Quadrupole IC-MS

Easily master MS for your IC applications.

Triple Quadrupole IC-MS

Need sensitive, fast, and robust quantitation of a variety of molecule types? For complex samples, the high sensitivity and selectivity of MS/MS using selected reaction monitoring (SRM) provides the most precise and accurate quantitation using IC-MS.

Orbitrap IC-MS

Thermo Scientific Orbitrap mass spectrometers generate high-resolution and accurate-mass data, thereby enhancing sensitivity in trace analyte detection, characterization, and quantitation. That's why they are used in research applications—in particular, life science applications such as metabolomics.

Get a superior combination of scan speed, high resolution, mass accuracy, spectral quality and sensitivity for untargeted or targeted screening and a broad range of qualitative and quantitative applications in environmental, food safety and metabolomics.

Use this system for IC-MS in life science metabolomics research to analyze the most challenging low-abundance, high-complexity samples, to identify more compounds faster, quantify more accurately, and to elucidate structures more thoroughly.
