Product News: Intelligent IC column

24 Jan 2008

Metrohm introduces the iColumns, the worldwide first intelligent column generation in ion chromatography. These columns are equipped with a data chip that stores freely definable data, fixed column data as well as data entered by the MagIC Net™ software.

Column data such as column type, standard flow and standard eluent, maximum pressure, etc., can be called up any time. The MagIC Net™ software identifies the column as soon as it is inserted, surveys the critical column data and ensures that there is no infringement of the limits.

If an iColumn is used in different IC systems, its information is automatically transferred to the next system. This results in complete traceability and GLP-compliant surveillance.
