RSA-Pro X™ – Hydrolytically Stable Glass Vials & Low Volume Glass Inserts

Silanol groups (Si-OH) on the surface of glass has been known to cause not only empirical quantitative loss but also inaccurate quantitation, vial to vial and run to run over time.  Silanol sites are very reactive and can produce among other things, imprecise data, reducing the efforts of the user’s preparation and care.

The data below, from our lab, shows the range of quantitative differences in silanized glass vials versus the RSA-Pro X™ vials over 72 hours, in aqueous conditions compared to “silanized” glass.

Vials were prepared with 1ppm of Chlorhexidine Acetate in a diluent of DI Water.  Samples analyzed within 24 hours show little no difference of % RSD data, whereas the quantitation over 72 hours illustrate not only that there is some sample loss but that the variability of quantitation in with time worsens and can be more and more problematic.
