Analysis of food samples by means of ion chromatography

This Metrohm article describes the fully automated ion chromatography determination of chloride, phosphate and sulfate in an ultraheat-treated (UHT) milk sample and baby milk powder dissolved in water by means of the 881 Compact IC pro ion chromatograph and the upstream Metrohm dialysis cell.

If a difficult food sample such as dairy products is run on an ion chromatograph (IC), there is a big chance that the column will be irretrievably wrecked. Of course, to avoid this a lot of time can be spent on tedious sample preparation steps to eliminate undesirable matrix components.

Another option is to go for an automated compact stopped-flow dialysis system that provides optimum separation while protecting the column from detrimental compounds.
