- Insert your capillary tubing into the appropriate Tubing Sleeve, ensuring the end of the capillary tubing is flush with the end of the Sleeve. Repeat the process for multi-lumen tubing sleeves.
- Insert the sleeved tubing into the fitting, with the sleeved tubing extending 1/4" past the fitting tip.
- Place the fitting into the receiving port, ensuring the sleeved tubing assembly bottoms out PRIOR to tightening the fitting. When connecting to a true zero dead volume union IDEX Health & Science recommends a plug be used in the opposite port prior to making the sleeved connection. Finger tighten the fitting.
- Repeat steps 1 and 2 for a union connection.
Please Note: The use of a plug as described in Step 3 is not needed for the second connection; simply remove the plug from the union and complete the second tubing connection.
