Near-vertical rotors feature a short pathlength, fast run time, and excellent resolution.
Near-vertical tubes are slightly off vertical, between 7.5°– 9° off. This creates a shorter path length for the isolation to occur. The shorter path length means a shorter separation time.
The slight angle pushes the pellet to the bottom of the tube, so that when the run stops, the solutions aren’t in contact with the pelleted contaminants.
