One issue that comes up frequently in the field of pharmaceutical analysis is the determination of ionic bonding in solutions.
For cations, there is a variety of fast and sensitive analytical methods available, such as ICP-MS, ICP-OES, and AAS.
Conventional methods for the determination of anions, such as titration, photometry, gravimetric analysis, or turbidimetry, are less sensitive, more time consuming, labor-intensive, and also error-prone.
Ion Chromatography (or more precisely, Ion-Exchange Chromatography), in contrast, provides several advantages:
- Column Stability
These advantages are of course also valid for the analysis of cations.
GBA Pharma successfully carries out this form of analysis for a large number of its clients. We can assist you with the development of ion chromatographic methods, with their validation and transfer, or simply with the routine analysis using your existing methods.
