Pipette-friendly, Two-part Vial for Difficult to Handle Liquid Samples

The patented Vista Vial™ design provides improved sample handling for autosamplers.

Chemists gain a whole new perspective on sample handling with Vista Vial™ series chromatography vials from J.G. Finneran Associates.

The patented, two-part design consists of a glass base and a polyethylene top that snaps together to form a standard 12x32mm autosampler vial.

The glass base provides a wide target for pipettes and is ideal for highly viscous and foaming samples.

The polyethylene top is available with 8-425mm threaded, 9mm threaded or 11mm Snap Seal™ neck finishes offering chemists a choice of closure systems.

Depending on the sample, disposal of vials is easier as the plastic can be incinerated intact without the need for closure removal.

The Vista Vial™ 1.0mL volume glass base is constructed of Type 1 borosilicate glass in either clear or amber.

 The polyethylene top accommodates 8-425mm standard and 9mm R.A.M. screw thread closures and septa.

Threaded closures and septa are available individually or preassembled. The Vista Vial™ with 11mm Snap Seal™ finish accepts J.G. Finneran Poly Crimp™ seals, Snap Top Caps™ and standard aluminum seals.

Pre-crimping the Vista Vial tops saves time and eliminates the need for expensive crimping tools in the lab. There is no need for a decapper to remove the polyethylene top from the glass base, avoiding the usual risks caused by decapping aluminum seals such as broken vial necks and cuts from sharp aluminum.

“The Vista Vial is perfect for handling highly viscous oil samples or foamy detergents that researchers were trying to force into the narrow neck of a standard autosampler vial,” says Janet Cohen, International Sales and Marketing Manager at J.G. Finneran Associates.

“After evaluating the problem, we came up with a solution that was ultimately patented,” she added.

Unique chromatography sample vials and closures manufactured by J.G. Finneran Associates are available internationally from a network of laboratory dealers.
