ICS-1100 Basic Integrated IC System

ICS-1100 Basic Integrated IC System


With dual-piston pumping and electrolytic suppression,the affordable ICS-1100 combines high sensitivity with set-and-forget convenience. Vacuum degas and column heater options further improve baseline stability and produce lower detection limits. The ICS-1100 comes with Chromeleon® SE data management software for automation and data handling.

Compact and easy to operate, the ICS-1100 delivers solid performance at an attractive price. Select Eluent Regeneration (RFIC-ER) system technology or 2 mm column chemistries to dramatically reduce eluent usage and costs. Automated sample preparation with the optional addition of a 6- or 10-port valve enables matrix elimination, filtration, and automated large loop/ small loop reinjection of samples.
