OBJECTIVE or GOAL
Use the optimal procedure to perform the autozero function on ACQUITY M-Class and nanoACQUITY flow transducers.
- ACQUITY M-Class System
- Run a 50:50 gradient using set pressure diagnostics to fully prime the system (minimum 10 minutes).
- Stop the flow and wait 30 minutes.
- Auto-zero the flow transducers using the ACQUITY console.
This procedure ensures that the auto-zero is performed correctly. The temperature of the pump heads immediately after a priming can cause fluid pressure within the system, resulting in a false bias that can affect the auto-zero procedure.
