Low cost of ownership: save money on consumables

Less consumables – Metrohm ion chromatography systems help you to keep operation costs low:
  • You don’t need to replace syringe filters or filter caps.
  • You can use the Metrohm anion suppressor for 10 years – guaranteed!
  • The systems and hardware components are rugged and robust.

> See how much you can save every year on consumables

In addition, our systems allow you to boost productivity:
  • Ultrafiltration: inline removal of particles.
  • Automated dilution factor calculation and sample dilution.
  • Automatic calibration based on a single multi-ion standard.

Flexible – and up to any job

You will be amazed what you can do with your 930 Compact IC Flex.

Use any kind of suppression, apply UV/VIS, conductivity, or amperometric detection, and benefit from the most important Metrohm Inline Sample Preparation Techniques – there is hardly any option that the 930 Compact IC Flex does not allow. Moreover, a system for analyzing anions can be refitted to analyze cations without much effort.

"Intelligent ion chromatography" – you simply cannot go wrong

Your 930 Compact IC Flex is self-monitoring. This means that

  • all system components are immediately recognized
  • instruments and other parameters are automatically integrated into the method
  • all system and method parameters are permanently checked
  • measuring results are traceable to every single step of the analysis

Intelligent ion chromatography gives you peace of mind: if any parameter is out of specification, your 930 Compact IC Flex notifies you with a message in plain text.

Continuous working without manual intervention – inline eluent preparation

When combined with the 941 Eluent Production Module, the 930 Compact IC Flex integrates automated inline preparation of eluents of any composition and concentration (including organic modifiers).

Connect an ultrapure water system to the the 941 Eluent Production Module and you may even use tap water for your ion chromatography. Automated inline eluent preparation

  • ensures stable retention times
  • contamination-free working
  • and saves manual working steps 
Up to four eluents can be mixed, depending on the application!

STREAM – less chemicals needed, less waste produced

STREAM (Suppressor Treatment with Reused Eluent After Measuring) is a system setup that uses the suppressed eluent for rinsing the regenerated suppressor unit after the detection. This means no additional rinsing medium is necessary. Moreover, the flow of regenerant can be reduced to a minimum.

The benefits are less need of chemicals and less liquid waste. STREAM enables non-stop system operation for at least two weeks – and even longer, if you rely on inline preparation of the regenerant.

Metrohm Inline Sample Preparation – more efficiency for routine analysis

Inline Ultrafiltration, Inline Dilution, Inline Dialysis and other Inline Sample Preparation Techniques make even the most challenging samples straightforward to analyze.

Use columns of any type and make

Your 930 Compact IC Flex system allows you to use any column you may need for your application.

You can select columns with different base materials, selectivities, capacities, and dimensions. Find more information on the Metrohm column portfolio here!

Automated ion chromatography – higher sample throughput and better results

Routine analysis without automation is hardly conceivable.

Increasing numbers of samples, their cooling or any particular liquid handling required, we can provide an automated solution for everything.

Intelligent injection techniques for more efficient working

Sophisticated Liquid Handling makes Metrohm ion chromatography unique.

Intelligent injection techniques make your daily work with your Metrohm IC much more efficient. Here is an example:

"MiPT" Metrohm intelligent Partial-Loop Injection Technique, e. g., uses a variable injection volume to cover a sample measuring range that extends across 4 orders of magnitude. This means that samples in the range of 10 μg/L to 100 mg/L can be analyzed with a single calibration!
