In some applications the ACQUITY Light Guided flow cells exhibit significant peak tailing due to adherence of the large molecules to the Teflon AF.  Eliminating the Teflon AF and going to a design with a stainless steel body is an acceptable solution. The 5-mm stainless steel PDA flow cell (205000612) is about half as sensitive as the ACQUITY LG PDA flow cell because the path length is reduced from 10 mm to 5 mm. There is also an increase in volume, which slightly increases the dispersion of this flow cell.
