Columns for Ion Chromatography

IC Columns with operator

The column: at the heart of ion chromatography.

Without the appropriate column, even the most powerful system will not deliver accurate and reliable results. That’s why Metrohm provides a wide range of columns that enable you to perform precisely the analysis you need.

Browse our columns to find exactly what you’re looking for:
  • Separation columns, precolumns, trap columns, and preconcentration columns
  • Separation columns for anions, cations, or other analytes
  • Columns with specific features, such as superior separation performance or short retention times
  • Accessories for columns


Find the right column for your requirements in our Column Finder

Our columns are the backbone of high-performance analysis of ions and polar substances by ion chromatography. Columns include known separation mechanisms such as:

  • ion exchange
  • ion exclusion
  • ion pair formation

Anion exchange and cation exchange column resins are the most widely applied column types for the analysis of inorganic anions and cations. Ion exclusion chromatography provides best solutions for the analysis of organic acids.

No matter what your applications requires, Metrohm offers the right separation columns for all disciplines in ion chromatography:

  • Anions with or without suppression
  • Organic acids
  • Cations with or without suppression
  • Transition metals
  • Carbohydrates
  • Amines
  • Amino Acids
