Aloha Jennifer

The sample vials provided from ThermoFisher are Quartz. Borosilicate and other “disposable” glass insert are susceptible to leeching with 100-104% H3PO4.

Cheers
Bill

That is a fantastic idea Dave.  I always hear lots of grumbling from people about washing vials so this would solve two problems.  Are the inserts something you make yourself or order from someone like Fisher or VWR?  If the latter, could you provide the part number.

Thanks,
Jennifer

During my PhD when I ran a Kiel III, we put glass inserts into the Kiel
vials. This way we could have several carousels of samples ready to go, or
being washed, and still only have one set of actual Kiel vials. The
inserts had a slightly smaller OD then the ID of the Kiel vial and were
short enough to not interfere with the acid dropper. These glass inserts
cost around $0.10 each.

Cheers,
Dave

Hi Jennifer,

If you get lots of sticker shock with the Thermo Kiel vials (thermo part
number 0754960, $36.00 each) you might try VM Glass in NJ.  I have
ordered 3 batches over the years.  Quality is good - only complaint is
that a couple were a little too large OD and got stuck in the lifter
tube.  Jason

Part number VMS943

Last ordered 150 vials in 2010 cost was $11.60 each
In 2003 they were $8.95 each for 100 vials.

Hello Everyone,

Quick question.  I need to order more glass vials for our Kiel III.
Does anyone know the Thermo part number?

Many thanks,
Jennifer
