Viper UHPLC fittings

Viper fingertight fittings seal at the tip of the tubing, virtually eliminating dead volumes and making it easier to plumb your HPLC or UHPLC system without any tools for reproducible leak-free connections to pressures up to 1500 bar.

Reusable and available in stainless steel (SST), PEEK and a biocompatible alloy (MP35N).
