The CIM® 0.34 mL disk needs to be placed into a specially designed housing and is immediately ready to use. The CIM® housing provides excellent sample distribution, simple and quick handling, and can be easily connected to any LC/HPLC or FIA system. Due to adjustable adaptors, one housing can carry one to four disks.
CIM® Disk Housings are available in PEEK and POM material.
The PEEK housing is compatible with organic solvents and aqueous mobile phases (buffers). It can also be used with alkaline solutions, e.g., 1 M NaOH. PEEK is not compatible with concentrated nitric and sulphuric acids. Some organic solvents, such as CH₂Cl₂, DMSO, and THF, may cause PEEK to swell.

The POM (polyacetal) housing is primarily intended for use with aqueous mobile phases (buffers) up to 30 °C (86 °F). It can withstand the use of diluted organic solvents (e.g., up to 30 % ethanol, methanol, 2-propanol) and alkaline solutions, e.g., 1 M NaOH. Polyacetal is not compatible with strong acids like sulphuric, nitric, and hydrochloric acids, especially at higher temperatures.
