The built-in suppressor achieves high sensitivity and highly-reliable performance and only half the usual bench space is needed
The new Ion Chromatograph HIC-ESP with its built-in suppressor provides high sensitivity analysis of anions for a wide range of applications.
Shimadzu has introduced the new HIC-ESP (Ion Chromatograph) featuring a built-in electrodialytic suppressor. The anion suppressor minimises band spreading and achieves high sensitivity and reliable performance for the quantitative determination of anions. The suppressor is rugged, providing stable functionality over long periods of operation. Furthermore, the system’s small footprint requires less bench space in usually densely-packed laboratories. The HIC-ESP covers a wide range of applications in environmental testing, pharma, chemistry and food science.
The HIC-ESP modular inert flow path system integrates a system controller, degasser, pump, CDD detector with temperature controlled flow cell, autosampler, slim-line oven and the anion suppressor. This new ion chromatography system combines a number of valuable features providing highly-reliable analytical results: excellent solvent delivery performance, low carryover, fast injection speed (as low as 10 sec), high sample injection precision and repeatability, precise oven temperature regulation and more.
The new ICDS-40A anion suppressor is located between the IC column and the detector. The unit features a low-volume design combined with a unique multi-layered structure. With a folded membrane, it provides highly efficient electrodialytic background suppression and increased stability. The patent-pending design reduces peak spreading, increasing sensitivity for components with low retention such as fluoride, and improves separation from the water dip.
The ICDS-40A allows for analysis as well as self-regeneration simultaneously, shortening analysis cycle time and maximizing workflow efficiency. Because the anion suppressor uses effluent from the detector as regenerant, it eliminates the need for cumbersome offline regeneration with environmentally unfriendly solutions such as sulfuric acid.
In addition, the user-friendly ion chromatography system integrates seamlessly with Shimadzu’s LabSolutions platform. This allows users to easily manage parameter setting for IC analysis, batch analyses, auto-shutdown, data processing and report creation. Data integrity is assured with the addition of LabSolutions DB and LabSolutions CS.
