Dionex IC Cube

At the heart of the Thermo Scientific Dionex ICS-5000+ and Dionex ICS-4000 capillary systems is the Dionex IC Cube.  The Dionex IC Cube cartridge integrates all the capillary consumables used in the capillary system into one convenient, easy-to-use package. With pre-cut, pre-formed tubing, color-coded connections, only half the connections of an analytical IC system, and easy-to-use cartridge-based consumables, the Dionex IC Cube cartridge has taken ease-of-use to a whole new level.

Better still, the Dionex ICS-5000+ holds two Dionex IC Cubes, making dual channel analysis in capillary mode simple to set-up and perform. Each of the Dionex IC Cube column compartments can be set to different temperatures, allowing the instrument to perform anion analysis at 30 °C and cation analysis in the second channel at 60 °C.

Dionex IC Cube Components:

  • Suppressor (Anion or Cation Capillary Electrolytic Suppressor (Dionex ACES 300/CCES 300)
  • 4-port, 2 position 0.4 μL internal loop valve.
  • Carbonate Removal Device (Dionex CRD 200)
  • Guard and Separation Column Compartment (temperature controlled)
  • Eluent Degasser (EG Degas)

Features and Benefits of the Dionex IC Cube:

  • Each Dionex IC Cube cartridge has independent temperature control for the column
  • Minimum dead-volume due to close proximity of cartridges in the cube
  • Half the connections of an analytical based system
  • Cartridges are easy to add and remove
  • Color-coded labels and connections
