QuikChem with Ion Chromatography Option
Flow Injection Analysis (FIA) and Ion Chromatography (IC) are complementary analytical techniques that are commonly used in the same laboratory. The QuikChem® 8500 Automated Ion Analyzer offers an Ion Chromatography Option to complement its basic FIA capability. By incorporating both technologies into a single instrument, the following benefits are achieved:
- Operation of FIA and IC simultaneously and independently on the same instrument platform
- Shared use of several peripherals including sampler, dilutor, sampling pump, electronics unit and data station
- Uniform operating protocols
- Reduced footprint
- Unified training, service and support
The QuikChem IC+ Option is available with the original system purchase, integrated at the factory, or as a simple field upgrade to an existing QuikChem 8500. With the availability of FIA and IC in a single instrument, Lachat Instruments offers the most comprehensive ion analysis solutions available today.
