Kinesis SureStop® 9mm Short Thread Autosampler Vials have been designed with an over-wind barrier, preventing the cap/septa from being overtightened (see Figure 1). This ensures the septa is not deformed, minimising damage of autosampler needles and preventing sample evaporation due to poor vial-septa-cap sealing.

The SureStop vials are fully compatible with all Kinesis Short Thread Caps and Septa, offering the full range of cleanliness and septa injection options.

Kinesis SureStop Vials are available in clear, clear with label and filling lines and amber with label and filling lines.

Optimum Vial-Septa-Cap Sealing – minimal analyte/solvent loss

Solvent loss (methanol) at 40°C for 24 hours was investigated, comparing the Kinesis SureStop Vial with two commercially available standard 9mm short thread vial products.

As shown in Figure 2, analysing 50 vials from two commercially available sources, and comparing with the Kinesis SureStop Vial, shows loss of methanol that would potentially impact reported results. The Kinesis SureStop vial showed little or no solvent loss throughout the test period with either optimal or over tightening.
