Ion Chromatography (IC) is an instrument that can be used to detect a wide variety of analytes with one analytical process for aqueous matrices, and is commonly used for the analysis of anions (i.e., chloride, fluoride, nitrate, nitrite, sulfate) by EPA 300.1. This webinar will provide a basic overview of the IC for those studying for their CWEA Grades 2, 3, or 4 Laboratory Analyst Certification and more advanced operational tips and troubleshooting techniques for laboratory staff currently operating an IC.

Learning Objectives:

1. IC instrument theory 
2. Calibrating the IC 
3. Interpreting IC results/peaks 
4. Basic IC troubleshooting
