Our “inserts” for autosampler vials allows liquid samples that are very small volumes to be stored and injected into an instrument with minimal evaporation or loss of sample due to the “residual volume” or adsorption to the insert walls.
Factors that should be considered when choosing an insert is vial compatibility, center alignment in the vial in accordance with the injector specifications, material the insert is made from and consistency of the bottom and internal dimensions from lot to lot.
Price and convenience are also important factors to consider. The MicroSolv range extends from low cost, flat bottom borosilicate glass inserts to mandrel point, precision inserts made with silanized, RSA™ glass with attached polymer springs. If you are not sure which insert is best for you, contact our Customer Support Department for advice.
