  • Importance of Degassing Fluids

    Feb 7, 2023 by IDEX Health & Science
    Degassers avoid inaccurate sampling, maintain throughput and reduce errors by removing dissolved gases – even across complex fluid systems – before they outgas into bubbles. Utilizing degassing in your fluidic path is essential for consistent and accurate results.

  • What Goes Where in an HPLC System

    Jan 25, 2023 by IDEX Health & Science

    Of course, fittings are standard items used to connect the components together, using tubing as the flow path bridge between components. Yet, one of the most commonly-asked questions regarding fittings is, “Where do all these fittings go in my system?” In other words, how do I know what to use and where? One common way to distinguish between fittings is by classifying them based on the pressure they can hold. This narrows the fittings choice based on where in the system they will be used. Learn what goes where in an HPLC system.

  • Void, Dead, and Swept – an Interesting Concept

    Jul 26, 2022 by IDEX Health & Science

    Often, when making connections, people want more information on the amount of “dead volume” in the connection. However, most people who inquire about the dead volume are really wanting to know just how much internal volume exists within a connection, not how much of that internal volume is considered “dead.”

  • If Your Fittings Leak

    May 13, 2022 by IDEX Health & Science

    No one wants leaks in their fluidic flow path. Leaks can cause bubbles, low pressure or no pressure and loss of fluid. All of these things can compromise you flow path and results. Check out these 6 tips if your fittings leak
