he PE 2400 is a conventional elemental analyzer. It operates by flash combustion of the specimen encapsulated in tin cups or disks whereby the specimen is completely combusted at a temperature of 1760 C.

The resulting gases are chemically scrubbed of the halogens (and of sulfur in the CHN mode) and are separated in a GC column. Detection is conducted by a thermal conductivity detector (TCD). Total C, H, and N are calculated with a precision of 0.1g.

Element ratios are more significant since they minimize instrument error. Molar element ratios may be reliably reported for up to three decimal places.

The iCAP is capable of rapid, simultaneous measurement of up to 70 elements in aqueous and organic solutions and is equipped with an autosampler with a 240 sample capacity.

The dual view design offers the flexibility of axial view for lowest detection limits and radial view for reduced interference; ideal for complex samples often encountered in environmental research.

Full frame imaging produces a picture of a sample and can be a useful qualitative tool in determining sample composition. Detection limits vary by element but are typically in the low to sub-ppb (ug/L) level.

Dionex ICS1000

This IC system determines analyte concentrations using chromatography columns and a pulsed electrochemical conductivity detector. It is typically used for automated testing of aqueous solutions. It is capable of measuring a wide variety of ions, given the appropriate eluant and analytical column. Currently, we are able to measure the major anions: Fluoride, Chloride, Bromide, Nitrate, Nitrite, Phosphate, and Sulfate as well as numerous other anions using an AS23 column. It can be reconfigured to analyze cations if required. The autosampler will accommodate up to 66 vials of 5 mL size, 88 vials of 0.5 mL size, or a combination of the two sizes.

Dionex ICS 2000
The ICS 2000 instrument is configured as a 2 mm system for high-sensitivity (sub-ppb) analysis. It is equipped with a potassium hydroxide eluent generator capable of gradient or stepped analysis and a column heater. These features offer improved peak resolution and sensitivity compared to the ICS 1000 system. Sample filtration via a 0.45 micron pore size filter (or smaller) is required.
