Flow Cells M6 Connector

M6 tubing/connector for flow cells

The M-6 threaded connector makes it simple and secure to connect the flow cell to your system’s pump/manifold piping. When threaded into the top of the flow cell, the threading is standard metric M6 type, which produces a tight seal. The M6 connection secures a PTFE tube in place, which seals tightly against the flow cell’s internal quartz surface. Your sample will only come into touch with PTFE and quartz with this design.

A stainless steel ring and neoprene o-ring arrangement protect the PTFE tubing from deforming when tightened, further stabilizing the connection. The provided tube has the following dimensions: 1.6mm OD, 0.8mm ID.
