SGT - Shortix Capillary Column CuttersGas chromatographic and column techniques, like On-Column injection, Quick-Fit column connections or any other critical gas chromatographic analysis, make it a necessity to cut a column extremely straight without cracked column walls or column blockage because of fused-silica particles. The Shor x TM Capillary Column Cutter is especially designed to allow everybody, independent from skill and experience level, to make the perfect cut. This is important because these errors, caused by non perfect column cuts, will result in poor chromatography, spikes in the chromatogram, leaking Quick-Fit connections, bad chromatographic reproducibility of retention times and peak broadening. When traditional column cutters, like a diamond pen or a sapphire, are used, only a fraction of the column wall is scratched. The column is then broken off resulting in a partly cracked, thus damaged, column wall. The SGT Shortix Capillary Column Cutter rotates a diamond cutter around the whole column wall making a scratch all the way around the wall. The column is then broken off resultng in a perfectly straight column cut. 

Shortix  GC

In Gas chromatography, the Glass Quick-Fit connection is often used. (e.g. for Reten on Gaps, Guard Columns) This connec on will only be leak- tight when the column is cut extremely straight and without any damage to the fused-silica column wall. Use For Fused Silica Capillary Columns Ø 0.5 Use with 0.25mm ID to 0.53mm ID tubing (0.78mm OD maximum).

Shortix CE-CEC

For CE/CEC analyses a clean and straight cut of the capillary column is needed to assure symetrical Field-Strength over the inlet of the column. When there is no symetrical Field-Strength, the analytical results will benon-reproducableUse For Fused Silica Capillary Columns Ø 0.25 micron
