Perfect Zero-Dead-Volume Connections

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.

Elastomer core
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.
