Ion chromatographers undertaking time-sensitive analyses or complex research applications can now take advantage of a new high pressure ion chromatography (HPIC) system designed to accelerate the productivity of both routine and research workflows with automated monitoring and diagnostics. The Thermo Scientific Dionex ICS-6000 high pressure ion chromatography system is designed to deliver robust performance and enable timely identification of instrument performance issues, helping scientists implement corrective measures to facilitate uninterrupted operation and improve laboratory efficiencies. Among other features, the platform includes a proprietary Consumables Device Monitor that incorporates memory tags into each IC consumable and uses the Thermo Scientific Chromeleon Chromatography Data System software to automatically monitor and record data, such as installation date, usage, decommissioning and performance metrics. The memory tag directly stores data for optimal accuracy regardless of the consumable being transferred and repositioned, while the monitor alerts operators when consumables are accidentally mismatched within a system. The monitor can track up to 16 key performance metrics on up to nine different consumables simultaneously. If a key metric begins to deteriorate, the system notifies the operator, who can perform preventive maintenance or replace the consumable, thereby minimizing unexpected downtime.
