Maximize lab efficiency with fewer failed assays and lower instrument downtime
Reducing failed assays from unknown contaminant peaks and limiting instrument downtime from out of specification vials or septa is a priority for your lab. Waters sample vials, caps & septa can help you do just that.
All Waters sample vials are held to the tightest dimensional tolerances. Manufactured via a 2-, 3-, or 4-step certification process, we ensure that Waters Certified Vials meet and maintain specified vial dimensions, levels of cleanliness and adsorption properties from batch to batch. Choosing the right vial can make a world of difference.
- Available in LCGC, LCMS, and TruView LCMS Certified Vials with cleanliness measured by LC and MS
- Consistent vial-to-vial and lot-to-lot performance
- High recovery vials for limited sample volumes
- Compatible with all autosamplers and designed to fit a range of caps
- Complete selection of vial sizes and materials with combination packs for easy ordering
- Reduced analyte peak variability for results you can rely on
Recommended Use: To reduce risk for your LC analysis while increasing consistency and reproducibility.
Which vial is right for your lab?
Application: Glass for basic and legacy methods. Polypropylene where glass is not applicable.
Benefit: Low cost, high value.
Certification test: Dimensional consistency
Application: Routine QC LC-UV analysis of compounds in µg/mL concentrations.
Benefit: No UV interference caused by manufacturing and packaging residues of glass and septum.
Certification test: LC-UV cleanliness; dimensional consistency
Application: Routine QC and LC-MS analysis with lower analyte concentrations from 10-100s ng/mL.
Benefit: Low MS interference of known residues and polymers from glass and septum manufacturing.
Certification test: LC-MS cleanliness; LC-UV cleanliness; dimensional consistency
Application: High-end LC-MS analysis and quantification of analytes with a concentration of below 1 ng/mL with reduced adsorption of polar analytes.
Benefit: Limited concentration of free ions on glass surface; lowest MS interference of known residues and polymers from glass and septum manufacturing.
Certification test: Low polar analyte adsorption; LC-MS cleanliness; LC-UV cleanliness; dimensional consistency
Ideal for demanding MS work
LCMS Certified Vials are suited for analyte concentrations in the 100s ng/mL concentration. Waters LCMS Certified Vials are tested by MS scans from 250 to 1000 m/z with specifications set on the total ion count and presence of clusters in the high mass range. This chromatogram shows a comparison of typical MS scans of Waters LCMS Certified Vials to vials of other sources and clean solvents.
Control data quality risks and reduce unexpected or ghost peaks
Don’t let the presence of background noise impact your results, causing data quality risks and unexpected or ghost peaks. Background noise can come from many factors, including vial cleanliness. In this chromatogram, the top shows normal behavior, and the bottom chromatogram shows ghost peaks.
More time on development. Less on troubleshooting.
Stop losing valuable development time on troubleshooting due to analyte loss from non-specific adsorption. Waters TruView LCMS Certified Vials have the lowest adsorptive losses on the market, and you can rely on them to provide consistency from batch to batch and vial to vial. This chromatogram shows a comparison of adsorptive loss of chlorhexidine in a variety of vials.
