ICS-2000 Ion Chromatography System
The ICS-2000 system is the first
totally integrated and preconfigured
Reagent-Free™ Ion Chromatograph
designed to perform all types of
electrolytically generated isocratic and
gradient IC separations using
conductivity detection. The ICS-2000
is available with a dual-piston pump,
LCD touch-pad front panel, ReagentFree eluent generation, thermally
controlled conductivity cell, column
heater, and optional vacuum degas.
When coupled with AutoSuppression®,
the ICS-2000 system provides high
performance with unequalled ease of
use. Automation provides full control
and digital data collection from a PC
using USB, high-speed communication
protocol.
Versatile
• Performs all types of IC separations
using conductivity detection.
• Integrated, preconfigured, factory
plumbed, and tested for immediate
productivity.
• Reagent-Free technology converts
deionized water into high-purity
eluents on-line.
• Streamlined design with small
footprint occupies minimal bench
space.
• An LCD touch-pad front panel
provides clear identification of key
operating parameters permitting atinstrument control and monitoring.
• Dual-piston pump design reduces
pulsations, allowing high-sensitivity
detection and excellent flow-rate
accuracy and precision.
Reagent-Free IC
• Isocratic and gradient electrolytic
eluent generation is capable of
delivering hydroxide eluents for
anion separations and methanesulfonic acid eluents for cation
separations.
• Automated eluent generation
minimizes time, labor, operation
costs, and eluent preparation errors.
Simple and Precise Control
• Built-in control for the SRS® and
Atlas® electrolytic suppressors.
AutoSuppression with electrolytic
suppression eliminates the need to
hand-prepare acid or base
regenerants. Electrolytic suppression
reduces background conductivity and
provides high signal-to-noise ratios.
•
•
•
•
Advanced single-range digital
output with operating range to
3200 µS full scale. Alternate mode
permits single-range analog signal
output.
• Column heater provides day-to-day
consistency, ensuring
reproducibility and stability.
Preheating of the eluent prior to
the column ensures the column
temperature set by the user. A
transparent cover allows viewing
of the column without temperature
disruption.
• Optional built-in vacuum degas
provides in-line degassing of
eluents ensuring, reproducibility
and protection of eluents from
contamination and decomposition.
Control of the degas operation can
be automated to sense when
degassing is required.
• Inert, nonmetallic PEEK
components throughout the system
ensure compatibility and metal
contamination-free chromatography.
Full control and digital data
collection available with Windows®
based Chromeleon®
Chromatography Workstation
Software using a USB high-speed
communication protocol.
Application templates preload all
instrument parameters for fast and
easy operation.
Through Chromeleon software
control—an electronic logbook
provides monitoring of userselectable operational parameters
by creating virtual channels.
High Performance
• For improved reproducibility, the
heated and thermostated highperformance conductivity detection
cell permits measurements that are
unaffected by temperature
variation.
