Ion Chromatography (IC) analysis - unlocking industry insights across diverse industry applications

Ion chromatography laboratories support analytical testing projects that require the separation and identification of components and trace materials. Ion chromatography is a form of liquid chromatography that uses ion-exchange resins to separate atomic and molecular ions for analysis. The applications of Ion Chromatography Analysis are broad and impactful, ranging from assessing anions, cations, and biochemical species such as amino acids and proteins to intricate analyses of halides in petroleum products and detergents. IC plays a pivotal role in pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical analyses, plating and treatment baths, as well as in identifying ionic contamination in critical components. Additionally, it aids in trace-level analysis of various ions, ensuring the highest standards of safety and quality across industries
