How can I attach my Pharmacia® column to my HPLC system?

Pharmacia columns typically employ the use of a male, Metric (M6) threaded nut to make a connection into your system. There are a variety of adapters you can use that are engineered to adapt Metric threaded fittings to the two most common U.S. Customary System thread dimensions: 10-32 and 1/4-28. IDEX Health & Science manufactures an array of adapter styles, ranging from a union between two fittings (one metric and the other either 10-32 or 1/4-28) to a male-to-male style, which allows you to change one thread type to another.
