Cations in small sample volumes by using the intelligent Pick-up Injection Technique (MiPuT)

The determination of cations in tap water is a simple IC application. Here it is used to present Metrohm's intelligent Pick-up Technique (MiPuT). MiPuT enables the injection of volumes of minimum size from very small sample quantities. In the present case, two volumes of 10 µL from a sample 100 µL in size are used for anion and cation analysis, respectively. The calibration takes place through the injection of various volumes of a single standard solution. AN-S-302 describes the corresponding anion determination.
