Thermo Scientific Dionex ICS-5000+ Reagent-Free system designed to increase flow rates and extend HPIC performance to standard, microbore and capillary separations.

Thermo Fisher Scientific Inc. has introduced the Thermo Scientific Dionex ICS-5000+ Reagent-Free HPIC system, designed to elevate ion chromatography separation capabilities to new levels of resolution, speed and flexibility.

The new Dionex ICS-5000+ Reagent-Free™ HPIC™ system is designed to operate at continuous pressures up to 5,000 psi at analytical flow rates and extend the benefits of high pressure ion chromatography to standard bore and microbore, as well as, capillary format separations.

High backpressure tolerance is intended to let users increase flow rates to maximize throughput while still providing the advantages of electrolytic eluent generation and suppression.

The Dionex ICS 5000+ HPIC system features a proprietary all-PEEK™ polymer flow path for metal-free inertness with the strength to operate continuously at 5,000 psi.

“We call this the universal high pressure IC, because of its extremely broad flow/pressure range. This allows very high pressures for popular workflows,” said Kim Kelderman, vice president and general manager, IC and SP, Thermo Fisher. “We’re excited to deliver this major advance in the evolution of ion chromatography speed and performance.”

The Dionex ICS-5000+ HPIC system can use the new high-efficiency 4 µm-particle-size IC columns at high pressures, which may enable users to discover peaks they have been missing.

As with prior Dionex IC systems, this is a Reagent-Free system that uses deionized water to electrolytically generate high-purity eluents. This can help save time and operating costs, enhance reproducibility, minimize labor, and limit contamination.

The platform’s flexibility is enhanced by the wide variety of Dionex ICS-5000+ modules available, providing many system configuration options.

The system supports a wide range of detectors, including suppressed and non-suppressed conductivity, electrochemical, UV-vis, and mass spectrometry.

For simultaneous analyses of two samples or two-dimensional analyses of a single sample, the system includes two channels that can be configured in a variety of ways, including standard bore/microbore, capillary/capillary and standard bore/capillary format.

The Dionex ICS-5000+ offers full Thermo Scientific Dionex Chromeleon™ Chromatography Data System support to streamline the path from samples to results.
