Reduced costs, better efficiency, increased sensitivity

Microbore ion chromatography (IC) uses microbore capillaries and columns with a smaller inner diameter (2-mm columns) than standard bore IC (4-mm columns). With 2-mm columns, the consumption of the eluent is reduced, meaning that eluent preparation is less frequently needed and accuracy is improved.

The microbore IC systems from Metrohm allow you to save up to 75% of costs as well as increase signal sensitivity up to 20% compared to standard bore IC systems. Contact us or download the brochure to learn more about Metrohm microbore IC.

The Metrohm microbore IC systems feature microbore capillaries, 2-mm columns, and a new state-of-the-art conductivity detector, the IC Conductivity Detector MB.

  • The microbore capillaries guarantee a precise eluent flow, resulting in outstanding stability for applications with isocratic or gradient elution.
  • The 2-mm columns ensure superior separation and selectivity while reducing the flow rates and recording times.
  • The IC Conductivity Detector MB comes with a reduced cell volume and is inert against methanesulfonic acid (MSA) eluents.
