Do you know how to select the right GC inlet liner for your analysis?

SGE inlet liner rangeChoosing the right inlet liner and injection parameter can increase peak areas and reduce detection limits by up to 300 %1.   The enhanced SGE inlet liner range aims to make it simple for all gas chromatographers to select the right liner with color coding of inlet liners by geometry.  SGE has also developed a liner selection tool to help you select the right inlet liner for your instrument, injection and sample.   The tool includes a handy Vapor Volume Calculator that checks if you are injecting too much for a particular liner.  It can help you avoid the ghost peaks, injector contamination, and quantitation errors associated with flashback.

SGE enhanced inlet liner range:

  • Easy to choose - Color coded by geometry to simplify your selection.
  • Easy to use - Contain o-rings so you're ready to go.
  • Confidence in your analysis - Certified deactivation gives you confidence in your analysis.

SGE inlet liner deactivation

SGE currently tests every batch of inlet liners for activity using the EPA 8081B method.  This standard method ensures that each batch of inlet liners has less than 3 % Endrin breakdown so you have confidence in your analysis.  Now, SGE is validating this quality assurance by including a batch certificate with every pack.

When deactivation REALLY matters SGE provides two additional single pack deactivation certification options:

  • When you need fully traceable inlet liner certification. Customers who are ISO accredited or follow GLP will benefit from SGE's certified single packs. Add CERT when ordering.
  • MS ready liners in single packs conditioned and MS tested post deactivation so they are ready for use straight out of the pack. Add MS when ordering.

SGE inlet liner pack options

SGE's enhanced inlet liners come as a complete packaged solution with 1, 5 and 25 packs available.  SGE inlet liners include instrument appropriate o-rings or sealing rings, plus color coded instrument stickers to identify which liner type is in your instrument.  SGE blister packs are now perforated enabling easy division of the 5 and 25 packs while maintaining blister integrity.  Look out for the 25 packs in a handy re-usable container in a range of attractive designs.
