I need to split my effluent flow from the column between a fraction collector and mass spectrometer. What can I use?

We manufacture a unique MicroSplitter Valve, which has been shown to maintain a controlled flow rate of as low as 2.0 microliters-per minute (with a 1mL/min. inlet flow). The split flow is adjusted by simply turning the thumbscrew on the valve to decrease or increase the amount of fluid leaving the valve from either port. If you need more exacting capabilities, including a way to return to a previous setting easily, try our P-470 or M-472 Graduated MicroSplitter valves.
