New Phenomenex, Inc. Video Demonstrates Cool-Lock Nut for GC Column Installation


4/10/2013 9:43:45 AM

Torrance, CA (April 9, 2013) - Phenomenex Inc., a global leader in the research and manufacture of advanced technologies for the separation sciences, announces a new online video demonstrating installation of the company's Cool-Lock Nut. The unique Cool-Lock Nut ensures precise and painless GC column installation and eliminates the need for wrenches or other tools. The low thermal mass design allows the Cool-Lock Nut to cool rapidly, preventing users from burning their fingers during column changes. Other unique design elements prevent the column from slipping to ensure a more reproducible installation depth for improved method accuracy. The short online video guides users through the quick installation process.

"Because this product is unique, it's helpful to see a quick demo on the installation process," explained Kristen Parnell, brand manager of GC products for Phenomenex. "Method sensitivity losses of up to 30 or 40 percent are common when columns are not installed at the optimal depth. It's difficult to ensure exact positioning because the work space is cramped and the materials are quite hot. The Cool-Lock Nut allows users to change a column very quickly without burning their fingers, while helping to improve installation accuracy and reproducibility."

The Phenomenex Cool-Lock Nut works with all standard GC columns and is compatible with Agilent and Shimadzu GC systems. The Nut is available in both long and short ferrule dimensions and can be used over and over for accurate column installations.

Phenomenex is a global technology leader committed to developing novel analytical chemistry solutions that solve the separation and purification challenges of researchers in industrial, clinical research, government, and academic laboratories. From drug discovery and pharmaceutical development to food safety and environmental analysis, Phenomenex chromatography solutions accelerate science and help researchers improve global health and well-being.
