What are the advantages of a preslit vial septa compared to a nonpre-slit vial septa? - WKB66856

Article number: 66856

ENVIRONMENT

  • vials

ANSWER

The pre-slit vial cap should be used in the case where a very low sample volume is being injected.  Having the pre-slit septa will help insure reproducibly in sample draw from the vial.

You may not want to use a pre-slit septa if your sample diluent is extremely volatile or samples are heated.
