Dionex Wins Prestigious R&D 100 Award

Dionex Corporation is pleased to announce it received an R&D 100 award as part of R&D Magazine's 41st annual search for the most innovative new products. The award was granted for the Continuously Regenerated Trap Column (CR-TC), which is used in Dionex's breakthrough Reagent-Free(TM) ion chromatography systems. The award was received by the inventors, Dr. Kannan Srinivasan and Dr. Nebojsa Avdalovic of the Dionex R&D Department. "The winning of an R&D 100 Award provides a mark of excellence known to industry, government, and academia as proof that the product is one of the most innovative ideas of the year," according to R&D Magazine.

The CR-TC was designed to benefit chemists involved with ion chromatography analysis. "We have been using the newly introduced CR-TC device for some time and find it wonderful," said Dr. Purnendu K. Dasgupta, Paul W Horn Distinguished Professor of Chemistry at Texas Tech University. "Unlike before, we have no down time in taking off a trap column, regenerating it off-line, and rinsing it for extended periods. Also, after system shut down and startup, the system goes to a low background value much more quickly than before, allowing us to reach very low detection limits consistently."
