Great quality and reliable instrument; versatile yet robust.
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Pharmaceutical GMP Analysis of Leachables in injectables;

"The Professional Vario IC 940 is a robust and versatile instrument allowing multiple applications with ANION, CATION, and electrochemical detection, without compromising quality. The system has built-in efficiencies to allow faster analysis and saving on consumables. The instrument itself has clear and detailed instruction manuals and troubleshooting guides for any operator to use even without specialist knowledge. On top of this, the Metrohm team also provides excellent priority service, with agile responses within the hour. The only criticism is the pricing can sometimes be a bit more than expected, but they do really prove that you get what you pay for; the quality of their products is second to none."

Robust and reliable analytical instrument!
Rating: 4.3

  • Application Area:Pharmaceutical industry

"Metrohm ion chromatograph offers high robustness and reliability on daily basis, especially for the analysis of anionic/cationic impurities in complex pharmaceutical matrices. Its modularity in terms of different detection techniques (conductivity detector, amperometric detection, UV/Vis detection) offers a user to analyze a broad range of different analytes in different types of samples. The Metrohm ion chromatograph operates very well together with its software “MagIC Net” and it is very user friendly. It is an indispensable piece of equipment in a modern pharmaceutical laboratory. Downsides: relatively high maintenance costs, limited mobile phase suppression capacity"

Robust, reliable and user friendly instrument
Rating: 4.7

  • Application Area:Pharmaceutical research

"940 Professional IC Vario is a robust and reliable IC system, suitable for everyday use. The results obtained with this instrument are highly reproducible. The instrument's design is straightforward and user-friendly, which makes changing columns, eluent paths, detectors, etc. very easy. Because of its robustness when working with organic solvents and active pharmaceutical ingredients, it is especially valuable for research in pharmacy. Besides, customer service and customer support are very responsive and helpful. The only downsides we noticed are a limited suppressor capacity and relatively high maintenance costs."

  • Application Area:Analyze waters

"It's a very effective equipment, it achieves high quality results and with very good reproducibility. It's very easy to use and the software is very intuitive. It analyses at the same time anions and cations, and with one equipment we can do the same we did with three others."

Exceptional results that made a huge difference to our research quality.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Quantification of ionic species in water samples

"Romola, Evan, and their team at Metrohm South Africa were exceptionally professional and diligent in providing our research group with the necessary information to purchase the currect combination of complimentary equipment/columns/detectors for our applications. In addition, they worked tirelessly to help us develop applicable methods to detect and quantify our species - including Chromium(III), Chromium(VI), As(III), As(V), Pb(II), Se(IV) and Se(VI) among others."

  • Application Area:Anhydrosacharides, ions

"I was surprised by the logical structure of MagIC. The program is simple and user friendly. At the same time, it provides a wide range of settings. I am also satisfied with the 940 Professional IC. Everything works as it should and it is not a problem to know anything. When I need to find out something, I use a CD with video instructions."

Excellent equipment with very good accuracy.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Analyze anions and cations in natural mineral water

"I have been using this device with 800 Dosino and 858 Professional sample processor since 2014. It is a very robust device with very high accuracy. The water we bottle has very low nitrate content and it is very important for us to have accurate results. It is easy to use, we perform many anion and cation analyses daily, we rely on the results of the equipment to check the quality of our products. After the purchase we had excellent technical support provided by Metrohm specialists. I am very satisfied with this system, with the analysis method and that the price is reflected in quality."

Works great and great customer service. Used the 850 Professional IC which has now been replaced with the 940 Professional IC Vario.
Rating: 5.0

  • Application Area:Deformulation of soap and detergent manufacturing

"This instrument is used to help deformulate soap and detergents. I had never used one before but have experience with HPLC. This is very similar and so it was easy to use. We can determine different analytes that are common in soap and detergents with ease. The customer service is wonderful and they are always willing to help you any way they can. They will do what it takes to make the instrument work well for your needs. Highly recommend. The results are just as consistent as a HPLC and give us the information we need. "

  • Application Area:Carbohydrate analysis

"This is an initial review and our opinion may shift with time; we have yet to work extensively with this instrument. Metrohm has really been top-notch in terms of customer service and willingness to offer custom solutions for specific problems. The quality of the instrument, software, and support has been far better than we would have expected to this point."

  • Application Area:Agricultural carbohydrate testing

"We have had great success with carbohydrate testing, specifically the "free" sugars in agricultural feedstuffs. We have used the data produced to calibrate our Near Infrared (NIR) to predict many of these sugars on a routine sample basis. This is a testament to the reproducibility of the 940 IC system from Metrohm. Service has been outstanding when needed although very rarely required. The software is very easy to learn and train others on."

"We have been using 940 professional IC vario and 930 compact IC flex with 889 IC sample center with conductivity and amperometric detector.

Quality of support and problem solving need to be checked by Metrohm team.
Rating: 3.7

  • Application Area:Organic and inorganic compounds

"In ion chromatography, we face many time challenges in terms of reproducibility and new approaches. Sometimes the application team are also unable to find the cause of our problems. In polarography, system to system variation is observed and this still under investigation by the application team. Sometimes due to lack of manpower, services are delayed."

Review date: 08 Jul 2015 | 940 Professional IC Vario
With the 940 Professional IC Vario system, Metrohm sets a new standard in ion chromatography. 940 Professional IC Vario stands for maximum flexibility combined with most easy operation and perfect reliability.

Entirely modular by design, the new 940 Professional IC Vario meets your particular requirements
while keeping you perfectly flexible. Based on one and the same system, you can configure any IC system you want or need.

All solutions – including standards – are produced fully automatically, if desired. Starting with sample injection, the system works completely autonomously. Moreover, it is self- monitoring: All system and method parameters are permanently checked; if any system component should require maintenance, the system tells you so – with a message in plain text.

The 940 Professional IC Vario system provides superior reliability of both the system itself and the analytical results produced on it: Because the system is self-monitoring, operator errors are virtually ruled out. You can absolutely rely on your measuring results. Moreover, all results can be traced back to every single step of the analysis and even sample preparation. Thus, even the strictest audits are no reason to worry any more.


940 Professional IC Vario Features:

  • Modular high-performance ion chromatography system.
  • Unlimited possibilities for system configuration.
  • Compact dimensions, small footprint.
  • For routine analyses and research applications in the ng/L- to %-range.
  • Highest sensitivity for lowest detection limits.
  • Intelligent system components for reliable results.
  • Wide range of detection options: conductivity, UV/VIS, amperometry, ...
  • Free choice of suppressor and column.
  • All gradient options.
  • Inline eluent preparation integrated in the system.
  • Multi-language MagIC Net software for intuitive and simple operation.
  • Complies with GLP and the FDA regulations.
  • Compatible with the unique and partly patented Metrohm Inline Sample Preparation
    techniques (MISP).
  • Complete automation for high sample throughput.
  • Low maintenance costs and long lifetime.
  • Rugged Swiss quality.
