MyCapLC Kit Diagram

Kinesis & Trajan are pleased to introduce the MyCapLC™ Kit, the latest product addition to the SGE portfolio.

High quality 100-500um ID capillary columns are costly, but with the MyCapLC Kit, for the price of half a commercial capillary column, you can pack three Capillary HPLC Columns without any additional instrumentation, you simply need a HPLC syringe pump.

Many commercial LC columns are manufactured using fused silica whereas the MyCapLC kit uses PEEKsil which is more robust.

Pack Capillary Columns Like an Expert

  • Pack your own capillary HPLC columns, no special pumps or instrumentats required
  • Make the columns that you want
  • Perfect for life sciences analysis

Pack capillary HPLC columns like an expert using MyCapLC™ Kit. You can easily pack your own capillary HPLC columns using your existing HPLC pump by following the simple MyCapLC column packing instructions.

MyCapLC for LC-MS/MS Protein Identification


  • LC-MS/MS analysis of a protein digest from Zebra fish brain homogenate using Filter Aided Sample Preparation (FASP method).
  • MS/MS ion search using Mascot software for protein identification.


  • MyCapLC user-packed capillary columns provide excellent peak shape and high peak capacity at 10% of the cost per peak and a fraction of the lead time for off-the-shelf capillary LC columns.
  • 151 proteins identified using an 0.3 × 150 mm user-packed capillary column using MyCapLC Kit.
  • 136 proteins identified using an 0.3 × 150 mm off-the-shelf capillary LC column.
