Inserts

1 Autoclaving inserts with plastic feet is not recommended.

Autoclaving glass or plastic inserts with attached plastic springs is not recommended. While the glass can withstand temperatures up to 1,000°F, the polyetheylene spring will become deformed, may crack…

2 Can the small volume insert plastic springs be purchased separately?

No, the plastic springs are only available together with the small volume vial inserts. RSA Glass Vial Insert and Spring RSA Glass Small Volume Insert Product Page Inserts Product Page © Copyright MicroSolv…

3 Fused insert glass vials (cat# 9532S-WCV) break during sample injection

Question: When injecting samples using fused insert glass vials, sometimes the needle hits the insert wall, causing it to break. Are the inserts not aligned vertically? Answer: This is more likely due…

4 How can I minimize bubble formation with limited volume vials?

Vials with small volume internal ID are designed to allow the user to use most of the sample which may be too low for the injection needle to reach with standard, flat-bottom vials. One drawback, is that…

5 How does manually adding MicroSolv inserts to a 96-well plate compare to the Waters Quickload™ format in terms of contamination?

The Waters Quick Load™ packaging format has all the inserts facing down in the packaging. The appropriate 96-well plate is placed on top of the inserts and is then both are turned upside down, such…

6 What does "residual volume" mean when referring to autosampler vials?

The syringe needle of an autosampler does not go all the way to the bottom of a vial, and therefore some sample will always remain. This is referred to as the residual volume of the vial. Some vials have…

7 What is the difference between precision point and conical point vial inserts?

During manufacturing of the precision point inserts (ie. cat# 9502S-02N) we use a mandrel that produces a sharply tapered "" internal "point" at the bottom of the insert that is ideal for maximum recovery…

8 What is the difference in specifications between Type 33 and Type N51A expansion borosilicate glass vials?

There is an ASTM method that exists and defines what properties the glass must have in order to be called 33 or 51. Ions Type I Class A clear glass(33) Type I Amber (51) Na 0.3-0.5 0.4-1.4 K ND ND-0.02…

9 Which vial should I use for a low-volume sample study using proteins?

Some compounds adsorb to borosilicate glass due to hydroxyl groups on the glass surface and others adsorb due to hydrophobic interaction with the glass itself. Deactivated (silanized) RSA (Reduced Surface…
