This Information Applies To: Fragment Analyzer, Femto Pulse, ZAG
A new syringe is required to clean the reservoir vent valve of the Agilent Fragment Analyzer, Femto Pulse, or ZAG (see Figure 1).

For all instruments, perform reservoir vent valve cleaning when needed, for example when experiencing migration issues, or dried gel is visible in the valve. Exchange the syringe whenever it wears out or is dirty. For a detailed description of the reservoir vent valve cleaning process for your instrument, please check the indicated pages in the respective manual:
- Fragment Analyzer system manual, page 63
- Femto Pulse system manual, page 61
- ZAG system manual, page 56
Unfortunately, Agilent Technologies does not offer the disposable syringe, but you can search online for 10 mL Luer Lock tip plastic syringe. The Luer lock tip is compatible to the reservoir vent valve.
