Ion-chromatography (IC)


  • Liquid and solid samples
  • Depending on the problem, the samples have to be digested first



  • Combustion Ion Chromatography - CIC System (Metrohm)
    • 881 Compact IC pro with conductivity detector
    • 920 Absorber Module
    • Combustion Module equipped with Autosampler for solids and liquids
  • High-performance anion-exchange chromatography with pulsed amperometric detection (HPAE-PAD)
    • Dionex ICS-5000 (Thermo Fisher Scientific)



Qualitative und quantitative determination of:

  • Anions - F-, Cl-, Br-, I-, NO3-, SO42-, PO43- ...
  • Cations - NH4+ ...
  • Low molecular organic acids and alcohols
  • Mono-, Di-, Oligo- and Polysaccharide



  • Environmental analysis
