In this study, conductivity cell and suppressor for micro-column ion chromatography were developed to analyze ions in small columns of samples. With a capillary column, the flow rate of the mobile phase is so small (usually $5{\sim}20{\mu}L/min$) that the usual conductivity cell can not be used. Therefore, we developed a new type of conductivity cell and suppressor which have small inner volumes. The conductivity cell was made with two Pt hypodermic needles (i.d. 0.010 mm) which are slightly separated (about $2{\mu}m$), and the suppressor was made of Nafion tubings. When several anions(fluoride, nitrite, nitrate, chlorate) were analyzed using developed conductivity cell and suppressor, a good chromatogram was obtained.
