Ion Exchange Chromatograph

You can request analyses by an ion exchange chromatograph directly from BRANOpac at any time. An ion exchange chromatograph is widely used for analysis purposes in chemistry and biology. With its help, substances can be separated on the basis of their charge - into anions and cations - in order to determine them quantitatively and qualitatively accurately.

After the sample of a substance has been defined, it is first injected into the ion exchange chromatograph and then conveyed through the opening of a valve to the separation system. Injection volumes of five to 100 microliters are typical. The most important component of the ion exchange chromatograph is the analytical separation column, which is operated at room temperature. A detector is used for detection and quantification. An ion exchange chromatograph also has a serial interface through which it can be connected to a computer to display the measurement results.

The innovative ion exchange chromatography replaces the previously used titration, a method that also led to very accurate results, but required an analysis period of one day. The new workstation reduces this time to one hour. In addition, not only chlorides and sulfates can now be detected, but also numerous other ions.
