Dionex Corporation and EMD Millipore sign distribution agreement

Dionex Corporation is now able to sell the ICW-3000 water purifier and consumables directly to customers globally. The ICW-3000 system was designed by EMD Millipore specifically as an ultrapure water source for Dionex Reagent-Free IC systems with the ‘Just Add Water’ technology that eliminates the need for eluent preparation. The purification system’s easy installation with simple plumbing and control by the Dionex IC system make it very convenient to use.

The ICW-3000 system provides a continual flow of ultrapure water to the eluent generator and separately for regeneration of the suppressor for up to two analytical-scale IC systems. Water in the 10 L reservoir is constantly purified, reducing ionic contaminants, as well as organics, to very low levels. This sharply decreases interferences and improves experiment reproducibility and sensitivity. Concerns about system contamination caused by water of questionable purity are eliminated.

Stéphane Dupont, EMD Millipore product manager, said: “This water purification system is ideal for capillary IC analysis on the new Dionex ICS-5000 Capillary IC system. The ICS-5000 system has a very low demand for eluent water, and the continuous purification by the ICW-3000 water purification system provides ultrapure water for extended periods without refilling.”
