Application Note: Inline Sample Preparation - Ion Chromatography User Guide
18 December 2018

Crystal clear, clinically pure, no bacteria and no particles: this would be an ideal sample for ion chromatography. The real world is often different. Apart from the ions to be determined, the samples contain matrix components which may be aggressive or lead to precipitation in the system. They can sometimes make analysis difficult, if not impossible. Samples with a high load of matrix components can damage the separation column or lead to blockages in the system. That is why suitable sample preparation is essential for reliable and accurate analysis.
