The glass material must contain at least 5% boron oxide to be termed “borosilicate glass”. Other types of glass with less than 5% is often called flint glass or sodium glass.

However, to ensure the best long term seal we recommend using our Crimp Top (Serum Finish) Vials. When a quality […]
Snap caps are chosen strictly for convenience in ease of applying the cap to the vial, such as in the case of capping hundreds of samples at a time. Screw caps on the other hand provide a better seal (when the cap is properly matched to the vial threading) and is therefore more reliable. An important thing to consider […]
Solid Phase MicroExtraction (SPME) is a technique in which a short fiber coated with a sorbent or polymer quantitatively extracts analytes from a sample matrix. The fiber is then sent to the injector of an instrument such as a Gas Chromatograph (GC) where desorption of the analytes occurs. For this reason, thin septa are highly recommended for SPME […]
Some Compounds adsorb to Borosilicate Glass due to Hydroxyl Groups / Silanols on the Glass Surface and others adsorb due to Hydrophobic Interaction with the Glass itself. Deactivated (surface Treated) RSA-Pro Vials offer the best Glass Options for you since the surface treatment is more complete than any other Glass Vial Available. RSA Vial […]
There are a number of ways to consider the Volume of a Vial. One way is if you fill the vial all the way up until there is no headspace when the cap is secured. You could call this a 2mL vial. In practice though, a sample cannot contain this much volume because of displacement caused […]
A simple and quick answer is to Meet the Different Needs of All Laboratories and Chromatographers.

Made to be Pharmaceutical Grade Vials equal to […]
Your vials are listed as 12 x 32mm but my autosampler accepts a maximum diameter of 11.8mm. Will they fit?
12x32mm or 2ml vials are listed as 12mm diameter for standardization purposes within the industry. This is a nominal value only (name only) and the exact value is suitable for use with your autosampler. The outer diameter is actually 11.8mm for most 12x32mm vials. Autosampler Vial Product Page
