ICS 2000-1500-1000 High Performance Integrated Ion Chromatography Systems State-of-the-Art Integrated Dionex introduces a new generation of integrated ion chromatography systems. The ICS-1000, ICS-1500, and ICS-2000 bring a new level of power to ion chromatography. With all three systems, integration incorporates a dual piston pump, a conductivity detector with heated cell, and a chromatography compartment for column and suppressor placement. The ICS2000 is the first totally integrated Reagent-Free™ IC (RFIC) with eluent generation for automated eluent delivery. The ICS series of ion chromatographs are compatible with all types of Dionex suppressor technologies. Powerful IC Solutions The ICS-1000 integrates an advanced set of features into one instrument. An ultra smooth all polymeric dual-piston pumping system contributes to low detection limits. Advances in cell design and temperature control provide driftfree baselines for precise integration and quantitation. The ICS-1500 provides the same advanced set of features as the ICS-1000 with the addition of an LCD touch panel display and integrated column heater. The ICS-2000 incorporates powerful RFIC technology into the ICS-1500. RFIC combines eluent generation, electrolytic suppression, and continuously regenerated trap column technology. RFIC provides superior separations with more consistent results as shown below. RFIC also enables lower detection limits while making IC even easier to use. 15 30.0 4 1 3 2 25.0 5 6 7 8 10 9 2 1 Manually Prepared Eluent 5 3 2 4 µS Electrolytically Prepared Eluent 15.0 12 5 2 4 3 2 1 -2.0 0 10 Sample Loop: Peaks: 1 10.0 0.0 5.0 10.0 15.0 20.0 30.0 25.0 Column: IonPac AS23 Eluent: 4.5 mM Na2CO3 / 0.8 mM NaHCO3 Flow rate: 1.0 mL/min Suppressor: ASRS® ULTRA II 4 mm Loop: 25 µ L Peaks: 1.

The table shows excellent reproducibility when transferring applications day to day, system to system, and laboratory to laboratory. d Ion Chromatographs Front Panel 1 The LCD touch-pad front panel on the ICS-1500 and ICS-2000 provides clear identification of key operating parameters permitting "at instrument" control and monitoring. Injector Eluent Generator 11 Low delay volume, PEEK, electrically activated Rheodyne valve provides reliability and consistency from injectionto-injection. 2 Eluent concentrations can be changed with the click of a mouse. Eluent generation eliminates the potential errors of hand prepared eluents and enhances day-to-day, operator-to-operator performance (available in the ICS-2000 system). 2 Conductivity Cell Pump 10 Dual piston pump design provides low drift and pulsation-free eluent delivery providing stable baselines and allowing lower detection limits. PEEK polymeric flow path eliminates metal contamination and corrosion. Vacuum Degas (Optional) 3 Low volume, high performance thermostated cell provides high sensitivity and permits stable operation in poorly controlled temperature environments. Digital control offers a wide dynamic range with "auto-ranging" that allows both major and minor components to be detected in one run. 1 Suppressor 9 Provides in-line vacuum degassing of eluents ensuring reproducibility andprotection of eluents from contamination and decomposition. Control of the degas operation can be automated to sense when degassing is required. 4 All Dionex suppressor technologies are supported, which ensures that all application requirements are met. ReagentFree suppression eliminates the need to prepare acid or base regenerants and provides lower noise, better sensitivity and less maintenance. 9 4 3 5 7 Eluent Valve 8 11 Electronically controlled valve provides positive shut-off of Eluent flow prior to the pump for easy servicing. Column Heater 10 USB Communication 7 Plug-n-Play USB communication permits fast connectivity with the reliability you expect from a USB controlled device. Instantaneous recognition with auto-configuration provides ease of use and simplicity in system set up. 8 6 Leak Detector and Drip Tray 5 Temperature control provides column stability and reproducibility in certain applications. A low-dispersion heat exchanger provides pre-heating prior to the column and ensures the column temperature set point. The transparent cover allows viewing of the column connections without temperature disruption. The column heater is standard on the ICS-1500 and ICS-2000 and optional on the ICS-1000. 6 The built-in optical leak detector and drip tray provide fast response and shutdown for system leaks. The ICS-2000 System 2 A Powerful Combination Conductivity Detection The ICS-1000, ICS-1500, and ICS-2000 have been designed and optimized for all types of IC separations and applications employing conductivity detection. The heated and thermostated high-performance conductivity cell permits measurements that are unaffected by temperature variations. Digital control offers a wide dynamic range for analyzing samples with disparate concentrations within the same sample. Eluent Generation Available with the ICS-2000, eluent generation eliminates the need to manually prepare eluents. Isocratic or gradient eluent concentrations are programmed with the click of a mouse for unprecedented simplicity and error-free operation. This electrolytic eluent generation provides precise eluent concentration delivery, run to run, day to day, week to week, and lab to lab. The Continuously Regenerated Trap Column (CR-TC), complements eluent generation and is an integral component of RFIC. The CR-ATC, for anions, and the CR-CTC, for cations, provide on-line eluent purification by removing trace ions and impurities, such as carbonate in anion applications from the eluent stream. Since the CR-TC is continuously regenerated, there is no need for periodic cleaning as with conventional trap columns. Electrolytic Suppression The ICS-1000, ICS-1500, and ICS-2000 each support all types of Dionex suppressor technologies, including MMS™, SRS®, and AES® suppressors. SRS and AES suppressors utilize electrolytic suppression, which frees the operator from manual regenerant preparation. The suppressor automatically produces the regenerant required for the application and provides continuous regeneration. Advantages of electrolytic suppression include: 18 9 7 µS 1 2 6 -0.50 µS 8 2 3 4 9 10 11 6 10 56 4 5 5 8 12 3 Advantages of RFIC RFIC combines eluent generation and self-regenerating suppression to empower laboratories like never before. In addition to saving time, labor, and operating costs, RFIC eliminates errors associated with manual eluent preparation. This effectively improves method reproducibility, day to day, week to week, lab to lab. Instead of manually preparing eluents and regenerants, chemists simply add a clean source of deionized water to the system. The ICS-2000 and its built-in RFIC technology take care of the rest by electrolytically creating the required eluents and regenerants used for IC applications. 4.50 µS 1 • Enhanced day-to-day consistency with low noise and drift • Reduced background conductivity and lower detection limits • Fast start-up times 12 123 4 12 11 7 -2 0 2 4 6 8 10 12 14 16 18 20 22 24 26 28 30 0 5 10 15 17 Minutes Minutes Column: Eluent: -1 0 5 Minutes 10 Component Retention Time (%RSD) 1.
