Heavy Wall CD Vials Increase Sample Recovery

Reporter US Volume 28.3

Heavy wall center drain (CD™) vials are an excellent choice of vials for analysts seeking to increase sample recovery when performing high temperature and/or high-pressure applications.

The CD vial has a unique conical interior bottom that allows the sample to completely drain to the center bottom of the vial. This patented design allows maximum extraction of the sample using a syringe or micropipette, with less than 4 μL of sample being left behind.

These vials are manufactured from 2.5 mm wall borosilicate glass tubing that provides a more durable vessel than standard wall vials for high pressure and/or high temperature applications that include lyophilization, derivatization and other small-scale reactions. This durability allows the heavy wall CD vial to be used as a replacement for V-vials and Micro Reaction vessels that are traditionally used in high temperature applications.

Heavy wall CD vials are also priced 30% less than the comparable V-vials and Micro Reaction vessels providing analysts with a quality alternative at a considerable savings.

Heavy wall CD vials have the following benefits

  • Greater sample recovery
  • Economically priced
  • Autoclavable
  • Temperature range of -70 °C to 160 °C
  • Manufactured from Type 1 borosilicate glass
  • Vial, cap and septa are pre-assembled

The heavy wall CD vials are available in a pack of 12 with a black cap and PTFE/silicone septa.
