The Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ ICS-6000 HPIC™ System is a high-pressure ion chromatography system that provides an impressive combination of increased productivity, expanded capabilities, and improved performance. Modular versatility, functional integration, superior performance and the capability to operate continuously at up to 5000 psi culminate in the most advanced ion chromatography system.
The Dionex ICS-6000 HPIC system offers a suite of features to get you from sample to results faster and keep your laboratory running seamlessly, including:
Single or dual channel configuration
When you need to run two different analyses simultaneously on a single sample or analyze two different samples concurrently, the Dionex ICS-6000 HPIC system can easily be converted to a dual-channel system.
Easy-to-install finger-tight fittings
Achieving consistent low-dead-volume connections is critical for maintaining optimum chromatographic efficiency. Conventional fittings can increase column broadening due to incorrect positioning of the ferrule, leading to reduced efficiencies and poor peak shapes. Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ IC PEEK Viper™ fittings provide consistent, finger-tight connections with virtually zero dead volume and require minimal training time.
Consumables Device Monitor
The Consumables Device Monitor automatically identifies and tracks the installation time, use, and performance metrics of your IC consumables. Use this feature to prevent consumable installation errors, schedule preventive maintenance, and manage consumable usage, ultimately minimizing system downtime and improving productivity. It is designed to:
- Keep metrics information with the consumable, regardless of the system in which it is installed
- Simultaneously monitor up to 16 key performance metrics on up to 25 different consumables
- Automated eluent preparation using Reagent-Free Ion Chromatography-Eluent Generation (RFIC-EG™) technology
The RFIC-EG module of the Dionex ICS-6000 HPIC system uses Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ EGC Eluent Generator Cartridges to electrolytically generate high-purity hydroxide, carbonate, bicarbonate, or methanesulfonic acid (MSA) eluents at the concentration you specify. A high purity source of deionized water is the only requirement.
RFIC-EG provides control for isocratic or gradient conditions with unmatched method reproducibility and accuracy. Improved control of the EG cartridge also minimizes system start up times, increasing productivity
The Dionex ICS-6000 HPIC system comes equipped with a tablet with an intuitive interface, enabling direct local control of the system and its status. Use the tablet or a desktop computer for system setup, maintenance, troubleshooting, and routine monitoring.
Using a technique called capillary IC, column size, injection volumes, and flow rates are scaled down by a factor of 25 to 100. With a capillary channel configuration, your Dionex ICS-6000 HPIC system becomes an always ready system that can run samples 24/7, so it requires minimal calibration and equilibration time.
The Dionex ICS-6000 HPIC system is high-pressure-capable up to 5000 psi to allow the use of 4 μm-particle-size IC columns, available in 150 or 250 mm lengths. The 150 mm-length columns decrease run times, while maintaining chromatographic resolution when compared to 10 μmparticle-size columns. The 250 mm-length columns offer improved peak resolution.
