Smart Laboratory Tools Introduction
Shortix Capillary Column Cutters
Gas chromatographic and column techniques, like On-Column injection, Quick-Fit column
connections or any other critical gas chromatographic analysis, make it a necessity
to cut a column extremely straight without cracked column walls or column blockage
because of fused-silica particles. The Shortix Capillary Column Cutter is especially
designed to allow everybody, independent from skill and experience level, to make
the perfect cut. This is important because these errors, caused by non perfect column
cuts, will result in poor chromatography, spikes in the chromatogram, leaking Quick-Fit
connections, bad chromatographic reproducibility of retention times and peak broadening.

Why our Laboratory Tool are 'Simply the best'?
When traditional column cutters, like a diamond pen or a sapphire, are used, only
a fraction of the column wall is scratched. The column is then broken off resulting
in a partly cracked, thus damaged, column wall. The SGT Shortix Capillary Column
Cutter rotates a diamond cutter around the whole column wall making a scratch all
the way around the wall. The column is then broken off resulting in a perfectly
straight column cut.
