Ion chromatography (IC) is an analytical method for the separation of ions in a solution based on their affinity to a resin/ion exchanger. The difference in affinity to the resin results in separation of ion mixtures at different rates. Therefore, IC is a powerful tool for the quantitative analysis of charged molecules including small inorganic ions, proteins, nucleotides, and amino acids. As a result, ion chromatography analysis has numerous applications to biopharmaceutical and medical device testing.

Pacific BioLabs offers comprehensive ion chromatography services for the following applications:

  • GMP analysis of chlorites, chlorides, and chlorates
  • Quantitative analysis of common anions including fluoride, chloride, nitrite, nitrate, sulfate, bromide and phosphate
  • Quantitative analysis of common cations including lithium, sodium, ammonium, potassium, magnesium and calcium
  • Medical device chemical characterization (ISO10993-18)
  • Quality assurance and control
  • Sample purity analysis
  • Custom analysis

Pacific BioLabs maintains state-of-the art facilities and instrumentation including Thermo ScientificTM DionexTM ICS-6000 HPICTM (High-Pressure Ion Chromatography) System with a conductive detector (CD), which allows for highest sensitivity, reproducibility, reliability, and performance in analysis.
