What does an Injection Valve do?

An injection valve serves two purposes. First, it allows the redirection of the pump flow away from the sample holding loop, giving you the opportunity to fill the loop with a predetermined amount of sample. Second, it once again allows the redirection of the pump flow through the sample loop, where the solvent stream carries the sample slug onto the head of the column to begin the separation process.
