Vials and seals

Sizing from buoyant mass

Two types of screw-top glass vial – 20mL and 40mL capacity - are available for use with Archimedes. By using the dedicated vial seals a snug fit to the instrument is created, enabling pressure to be maintained throughout Archimedes’ fluidics system.

  • 20mL screw-top glass vials.
  • Vial seals create a pressure-tight fitting.
  • Vials need only be finger-tight.
  • Additional seals available for snug fitting of fluidics lines into reference and waste bottles.
  • Inserts such as eppendorf tubes may be used for smaller sample volumes inside 20mL vial.
