PicoClear™ technology revolutionizes the way capillary connections are made. High performance applications that require connections with inline filters, liquid-junction voltage, sample-trap, or tees and crosses are now simple and easy! The PicoClear line of connectors can do it all–even at high pressure.
How does PicoClear™ technology work?
PicoClear connectors feature pure radial compression toprovide a high performance connection. This novel format ensures the perfect alignment and union of fused-silica tubing – every time. Uniformly applied pressure surrounds the tubing, thereby eliminating friction and cracking that can lead to unwanted contaminants and result in a clogged nanospray emitter.
|Pure radial compression
The radial compression provided by PicoClear connectors is a revolutionary development in LC-MS and eliminates frusto-conical compression connections featured in traditional fittings. Troubleshooting becomes diagnostic and clogging is virtually eliminated.
|Clearly, a revolutionary solution
Because PicoClear connectors are clear,perfect contact is confirmed with a simple visual inspection. A clear solution to a difficult problem.
The elastomer core provides the platform for PicoClear technology and allows for the easy visualization of the perfect connection.Compression of the elastomer core results in a clear view of the union, and of course, a perfect connection.
PicoClear technology is an essential part of the high-performance analytical laboratory. Capillary connections are now robust and simple.
|2D Separations & Beyond
Build your own, custom multi-phasic columns. Take advantage of PicoClear technology and the novel zero-dead volume design to connect columns of differing or similar chemistries – with no loss in performance. It’s easy!
|Visible Inline Filter
Integrate PicoClear technology with an IntegraFrit™ nanobore column to create an in-line, metal free filter–A powerful combination.
Modern applications require the highest possible performance – sensitivity, selectivity, ruggedness. Use PicoClear™ connectors over and over again to ensure a perfect connection that is free of contaminants. A quick visual inspection of the PicoClear see-through elastomer core can confirm that your fluid path is in tip-top shape. When it is time to replace the PicoClear core, simply remove the used core and replace it with a new one.
