  • Application Area:pulp and paper

"I have used this type of instrument since they first became available. It runs with very little effort required, is robust and is a work horse for our lab. It can easily be switched from analysis to analysis with a minimum of operator attention. The autosamplers are reliable and easy to load. The supplier provides an extensive list of reference papers and methods."

  • Application Area:Research involving AMD sites

"This instrument has played a big part in my research because my research involves the analysis of anions from a water sample that is collected from AMD sites. The instrument is not hard to use once you see how it works once."

  • Application Area:high salt solutions

"This IC easily has the low detection limits necessary to determine anions in salt and bleach solutions (high ionic strength).  The anions we look for are chlorate, bromate, perchlorate, sulfate, phosphate, iodide, and fluoride.  We are going to investigate the use of this instrument for cations (metals) since ICP/OES & ICP/MS have some issues with detection limits.  The service we get is fantastic and they are always willing to help us develop methods."
