Works like a a stable workhorse for daily business in an accredited area.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area: Analyses of heating circuit waters, condensates from gas powered heating installations

"As a member of an accredited lab, I really worship the durability and ease-of-use of our 2 Methrohm IC Pro 881 (one for anions with MSM, the other one for cations). A "standard" maintenance is fairly easy to complete, so maintenance costs are quite low. "Specialized" maintenance (pump exchange, fiddling with the conductivity detector, changing heat plates for column heating also is quite easy for a guy like me being involved in the development and prototyping of analytical instruments for more than a decade). Not that all these 'repairs' have been necessary for the last 6 years, but my 881 Pro's really are workhorses, easy to adapt and maintain, it´s easy to validate them also for different approaches (Thanks to the big application library of Metrohm and support by application specialists). Even quite clunky applications can be solved. All in one (no, two words): Thumbs up!"

Very good results.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Water analysis

"We have been working with this for eleven years and I have to say it is a very robust product and continues to perform very well, despite the workload. It also has great technical service. Very happy with the equipment for water analysis for both cations and anions. "

  • Application Area:Heating circuit water

"Have been running an IC Pro 881 Cation and an IC Pro 881 Anion with a suppressor module for at least 8 years, and being a workhorse, easy to maintain, and even easy to service, I wouldn't like to be without them. Not to mention the quite easy to use MagIC NET Software. Maintaining method development is nice, and I know because the control PC turned off during the last few measurements, so I had to renew the whole method by hand I know that there are newer and more polished instruments on the market, and I know that for ultrapure analytics the whole system would not be acceptable, but for most applications ranging in mg or sub-mg/l both are very useful. Just my two cents. "

Reliable data and a benefit for the laboratory.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Environmental Sample Analysis

"The instrument is easy to operate after getting an understanding of the software and routine maintenance items are limited and easily accessible. The sensitivity, reliability, and repeatability of the analysis is very good- rarely have quality control issues as long as the preventative maintenance items are covered. The column life has been great for our units, normally going past 6 months of use until degradation is started to be observed. Method development was straightforward and tech support was very helpful in getting us going. Support for major maintenance has been good, but not always as timely as one could hope for major component issues- although these issues have been rare. Tech support team has been very helpful in resolving issues and diagnosing problems as well as with software help."

  • Application Area:Anion analysis (NO3, NO2, Cl, Br, F, SO4)

"The IC columns last for a long time even while running different matrices. The previous instrument we had needed a new column every month. The service is excellent. Whenever there is an issue, the problem is solved very quickly."
