Shutdown procedures

Shutdown procedures for ion chromatographs

Going away for the holidays? Make sure your IC will be read for you when you get back. Everyone needs a holiday. Shutdown procedures when on holidays For some laboratories that means the instruments get a break too. While some instruments require continuous operation to be ready when you get...

Partial Loop Injection

Partial Loop Injection (Ion Chromatography)

Increase the flexibility of your IC. Analytical instruments are designed to run with sample concentrations in optimal windows and preferred matrices. Unfortunately, not all samples are created equal. If you have samples from a range of sources, you are likely to have concentrations and matrices over a wide range too....

Ensuring accuracy in IC analysis

Ensuring accuracy in IC analysis

Prove your system is giving you the right results, beyond a doubt. How often do I need to calibrate my instrument? How do I know the results are accurate? These are questions we often hear when visiting customers new to using Ion Chromatography, and they are valid questions too. Using...

Metrohm Software Care

Metrohm Software Care

Keep your software up to date and running faster. If it feels like your system is a little more sluggish than it used to be, you are probably right. If it seems to take forever to print a report, it probably does.  Computers and Touch Controls running our instruments, like...

High-Low Calibration

High-Low Calibration

Extend your calibration range in your current method. Calibrating your IC accurately is one of the most important things you can do for accurate analysis. Calibrations should encompass the expected concentration range of your samples, include four or more calibrations points and have a correlation coefficient that is as close...

Automated Matrix Elimination

Automated Matrix Elimination

Optimize your sample preparation with the minimum effort. While clean waters are the perfect sample for ion chromatography, samples requiring analysis are rarely nice enough to present this way. Samples from mining leachates, soils and chemical waste contain all sorts of things that are best kept away from a separation...

Fats, proteins, oils and Ion Chromatography

Fats, proteins, oils and Ion Chromatography

Protein and IC, now with simple sample preparation. Fats, proteins and oils provide challenges for analysis with ion chromatography. Fats and oils generally mean a non-aqueous sample, and all sample must be aqueous. Proteins provide a challenge by blocking columns and being difficult to filter. Historically, these samples either have...

One application today, another tomorrow

One application today, another tomorrow

Limited to one application on your IC? Not here!  Instrumentation is a big investment for any laboratory, so you want to get as much out of your instrument as possible. While some laboratories have high enough throughput to dedicate instruments to a specific applications, many do not. Which makes flexibility...

Maintaining your Metrohm IC

Maintaining your Metrohm IC

Keep your instrument in optimum working order. Maintaining your precision instrumentation has many parallels with maintaining your car. We perform a number of small maintenance procedures throughout the year. With certified service engineers performing major maintenance and calibrations on an annual or six monthly basis. Users of Metrohm IC, will...

In-line filtration

In-line filtration

Every sample for Ion Chromatography analysis must be particle free. This means, almost, every sample needs filtration. While this can be performed manually, that leads to A) a sore thumb and B) a lot of filter cartridges. So let’s automate. Automating sample filtration saves our thumbs and lowers the time...

Low level organic acid analysis

Low level organic acid analysis

Monitoring of individual organic acids with reverse suppression. Monitoring organic acids has been a tricky concept for a long time. As they are weak, to the point of non-dissociated, with a very low conductivity, separation and quantification has always been a headache. Yet monitoring of organic acids is important for...

Monitoring for your Metrohm IC

Monitoring for your Metrohm IC

Keep an eye on your instrument, or let it do so for you! It has been mentioned here before, all instruments need to be looked after. But when should we intervene? With Metrohm IC, all of the primary components are monitored by the system. Columns, pumps and detectors all monitor...
