Can the Merlin Microseal be used with the OPTIC?

Yes, the Merlin Microseal Septum fits standard on the OPTIC 3 and 4. It's however important to use it with the correct needle gauge, and do not over tight the injector nut. The needle gauge should be 23 and the point of the needle should be a blunt-tip (conical). Please read the Merlin Microseal manual before use. Now also available for SPME and SPME Arrow.
