RK-Spectro Technical Note 32: SFM-20 used in anaerobic conditions and the loading of instrumentsLatest updated: February 16, 2021
Anaerobic projects require specific attention because of the high risk of contamination. Using the SFM-20, driving syringes need to be filled outside the instrument and then installed back onto the instrument. With a standard SFM-20 syringe, the upper part of the syringe is opened to air and oxygen contamination can easily occur. A syringe with a special adaptor has been designed to avoid such contamination.
