Installation, Step 3d: Connecting Thermo Scientific Nanospray Flex source with 5cm RAPID column housing

The 5cm RAPID Aurora Series column requires a housing unit, which stabilises the column and connects the source high-voltage to the nanoZero┬« fitting.

Only one housing unit is required per instrument, not per column. 

The 5cm RAPID Aurora Series column does not fit into the Sonation Column Oven.  However, this column can be operated without a column heater. At flow rates of between 2 and 4 ╬╝l/min at room temperature, the back pressure from the column should be within normal operating range of most UHPLCs.

Handling of fused-silica or glass tubing and tips can result in serious personal injury, including eye and skin injury. Use safety goggles meeting AS/NZS 1336 requirements or equivalent. Puncture and chemical-resistant gloves should also be worn at all times.
