Should I use a precolumn filter?

A precolumn filter should be used primarily if you have concerns about particulate matter in your samples. As this material passes along the solvent stream without the filter in place, it could plug up the frit at the head of your column or cause damage to the internal packing of your analytical column. The pre-column filter prevents particles larger than the pore size of the frit inside the filter body from passing through.
