Dionex Corporation is an American company based in Sunnyvale, California. It develops, manufactures, sells, and services chromatography, ion chromatography and extraction systems for separating, isolating, and identifying the components of chemical mixtures.Dionex develops the Chromeleon brand of chromatography software. The primary function of Chromeleon is to control and obtain data from Dionex analytical instruments although the software supports instruments from other vendors. Chromeleon 7 is the latest edition of the software.The latest technology made by Dionex is the Rapid Separation LC and the polymeric HPLC columns, a type of monolithic HPLC column. Unlike the inorganic silica columns, the polymer monoliths are made of an organic polymer base. Dionex, traditionally known for its ion chromatography capabilities, has led this side of the field. Dionex first acquired a license for the polymeric monolith technology in the 1990s.Thermo Fisher Scientific announced its acquisition of Dionex in December 2010 for $2.1 billion to develop the water sector-analysis in China.

Source Type

A system reduces unwanted noise due to pump movement. The system includes a pump including a non-conductive piston extending into a pumping chamber for pumping the sample fluid along an analysis fluid path, a wash chamber, and a seal fluidly separating the pumping chamber from the wash chamber. The system also includes a wash path supplying a wash fluid from a wash reservoir to the wash chamber, an electrical conductor electrically connecting the analysis fluid path to the wash fluid path, and a ground conductor electrically connecting the electrical conductor to ground via a resistor. The electrical conductors and resistor combination between the chambers reduces unwanted noise in the conductivity detector due voltage potentials between the eluent and wash chambers created as the piston moves between the chambers.

A method of packing a chromatography column, including: dispersing chromatographic media particles in a slurry solution to form a slurry, filling a chromatography column with the chromatographic media particles by introducing the slurry to the column and applying a pressure to pack the chromatographic media particles in the chromatography column. The slurry solution is preferably aqueous based slurry solution. The pressure is preferably applied and held substantially constant for a first period at a first pressure and is applied and held substantially constant for a second period, following the first period, at a second pressure higher than the first pressure.


An ion-exchange composition suitable for use in ion exchange chromatography, comprising neutral vinyl polymer support particles irreversibly bound to a dispersant having ionizable sites which are un-ionized at a neutral pH and which are ionized under highly acidic or highly basic conditions, and fine layering particles functionalized with ionexchanging sites on the surfaces thereof. A portion of the ionizable sites are ionized and bound electrostatically to a portion of the fine layering particles ion-exchanging sites, producing a support particle-dispersant-fine layering particle complex.

Apparatus for extracting organic analytes from a sample comprising a first compressed gas source connected to valving and a sample extraction cell connected to the valving. A pressure regulator is connected to the extraction cell outlet to the pressure regulator. The pressure regulator blocks fluid flow when the pressure at the pressure regulator inlet is below a predetermined pressure and permits fluid flow when above said predetermined pressure. The apparatus is free of operative association with a mechanical pump or with a compressed gas source other than the compressed gas source. An extraction method for using the above apparatus is described.

A method of extracting an analyte from a sample is described where the sample includes water. The sample and polymeric drying agent are added to a container. The polymeric drying agent includes a cationic monomer, an anionic monomer, and a crosslinker. The polymeric drying agent is configured to sorb water from the sample.


An automated method of calibrating a chromatography system and analyzing a sample is described. The method includes forming diluted standard solutions that are injected into a chromatography column. The detected peaks can be identified based on a first predetermined calibration ratio associated with the standard solution. Once the chromatography system is calibrated, samples can be chromatographically analyzed where the measured peaks are identified and quantified in an automated manner.

An ion exchange chromatographic packing material is described that includes support resin particles and a copolymer grafted to the support resin particles. The copolymer includes polymerized functional monomers such as a first ion exchange group monomer and a second ion exchange group monomer. At a first pH, the first ion exchange group monomer is configured to have a first charge at a first pH, and the second ion exchange group monomer is configured to have a net neutral charge. At a second pH, the first ion exchange group monomer is configured to have the first charge at a second pH, and the second ion exchange group monomer is configured to have a second charge at the second pH where the first charge and second charge both have a same polarity.


A method of extracting an analyte from a sample is described. The sample is added to a sample container. A liquid solvent and a gas are added into the sample container. The addition of the gas is controlled to establish an elevated pressure within the sample container. The liquid solvent is heated to an elevated temperature that is below the boiling temperature of the liquid solvent at the elevated pressure. A type of gas is used that does not transition to a supercritical fluid at the elevated temperature and pressure used in the extraction process. The analyte can dissolve from the solid sample into the liquid solvent. Next, at least a portion of the liquid solvent containing the dissolved analyte can be removed from the sample container for subsequent analysis.
