Hi Richard

Last year Aaron Rae put me on to Thames Restek
http://www.thamesrestek.co.uk/  enquiries at thamesrestek.co.uk , I
asked them for a quote for PEEK TUBE 1/32" OD x
0.25mm ID (TPK-510-5M) and at that time told the mimimun order is 1m
and it costed £54.90. To be honest have not tried it yet (the original
BD supply we have is still going strong!) but it looks the part.

Good luck

I am looking to find a good supplier of HPLC tubing for replacing the
sample line tubing on our Aria II. I want to see if I can find a cheaper
price than BD (7" is £10.45, the 12" is £110.50 and the assembly is
£911.01 last time I asked!!)

What size OD and ID do I need and what material is recommended? Is it
easier to buy a length then cut it as you need it?

Ideally supplier will be UK based or at least ship to UK!

Any thoughts and ideas greatly received!

Many Thanks
