Ion Chromatography

Major and Trace Elemental Analysis

Ion Chromatography is used to analyze anions or cations, primarily in aqueous solutions. IC can be used to analyze major, minor or trace (sub ppm) constituents. It can be used for qualitative and quantitative analysis and is typically priced on a “per ion” basis. We require about 2-5grams of solid or 100mL of liquid liquid samples for IC analysis – please do not send more than we need since we will have to dispose of or return the excess.

Presently, we are quoting on the following ions: Bromide (Br-), Chloride (Cl-), Fluoride (F-), Nitrate (NO3-), Nitrite (NO2-), Phosphate (PO4-3) and Sulfate (SO4-2). We use a Dionex DX-120 IC system.
