Due to customer demand, our experts have increased the number of length and ID configurations from our initial eight, to a selection of 55 robust configurations. MarvelX™ UHPLC Connection Systems have been designed for easier routing throughout your instrument, with consistent performance and superior re-usability. Built with a convenient, removable stainless steel fitting and changeable precision-cut flexible tubing, MarvelX can be used up to 200 times! This amazing design only requires 2 in-lbs of installation torque, and seals up to 19,000 psi (~1,310 bar). MarvelX is compatible with 10-32 coned receiving ports and is truly finger-tight — no tool required.
MarvelX UHPLC fittings do not depend on ferrules. They seal at the bottom of the port, without complex techniques, which significantly reduces required torque and enables many more connects and disconnects. Furthermore, they are virtually impossible to over-tighten by hand, limiting wear and increasing product life. An enhanced proprietary tip design also ensures zero dead volume (ZDV) and better chromatography results.
Conventional coned fittings require a ferrule in conjunction with a fitting for proper sealing. They depend on complex techniques, including tools, to improve sealing performance, which significantly increases probability of extra internal volume and poor chromatography results. The excessive force needed for tightening increases wear of expensive components and the likelihood of replacement, adding to overall costs.
