Thanks for the link to Sarah's video. Unfortunately those instruction do
not show the Ni tube that is in the new GC Isolink reactor nor does it
explain how the capillary is glued to the reactor tube. The
instructional video shows the methods used for preparing reactor tubes
for GC-C I (which I still have in my lab) to GC-C III. I am sure that
they work for the GC Isolink, but I do not believe that they are not the
newest generation of reactor tube design.
