Aurora Series column features

Aurora Series column features

Aurora Series columns are available in four product ranges, allowing for compatibility with Thermo Scientific, Bruker, and Sciex instruments:
  1. Aurora columns
    1. Compatible with Thermo Scientific's Nanospray Flex source.
  2. Aurora TS columns
    1. Compatible with Thermo Scientific's Nanospray Flex source and EasySpray source.
  3. Aurora CSI columns
    1. Compatible with Bruker's CaptiveSpray source.
  4. Aurora SX columns
    1. Compatible with Sciex's Optiflow Turbo V source using the nanoflow probe.

Aurora Series columns are differentiated by two key technological advances:
  1. A unique packed emitter design that enables maximum mobile phase velocity with no post-column dead volume.
  2. Our own nanoZero® technology that provides user friendly ‘plug and play’ connections with true zero pre-column dead volume.
Together, these features combine to maximise chromatographic efficiency and dramatically enhance performance, providing a best in class solution for peptide and metabolite LC-MS separations.


Product features include:
  1. Integrated emitter with zero post-column dead volume.
  2. Pre-fitted with nanoZero® to provide a zero-dead-volume female union between a nanoViper™ Fingertight fitting (or equivalent) and the Aurora Series column.
  3. nanoZero® fitting incorporates a 10-32 internal thread for easy installation.
  4. Designed to withstand ultra-high-performance LC (UHPLC) backpressures of >1200 bar (Gen2) and >1700 bar (Gen3).
  5. nanoZero® is electrically conductive to allow a voltage connection to the column.
