Removing Air Bubbles from the NGC™ Chromatography System

This video explains how to remove bubbles and/or reduce bubble formation in your NGC System. Tips to reduce bubbles include warming up your multiwave detector for 30 to 60 min before use and flowing buffer at 0.1–0.2 ml/min in the manual mode until a stable/flat baseline is achieved before starting a method. The system may also be flushed with 100% methanol or ethanol at purge speed, with columns out of line, to remove bubbles.

Using the Air Sensor on the NGC™ Chromatography System

This video describes the functions of the Air Sensor Module and how to connect it to the NGC Chromatography System. The NGC Air Sensor senses the end of sample or buffer and prevents the introduction of air into the system, which can damage columns and/or incur the loss of precious samples. Both small and large air sensors are available to fit the tubing being used. Steps for connecting the Air Sensor Module and associated air sensors are described including how to add the air sensors into the system flow path using ChromLab™ Software and the differences in using the air sensors in manual vs. method modes.
