For your Express DNA machine to function properly, an argon gas supply with pressure between 6 and 10 bar needs be connected to Kilobaser.
Have a look at our gas supply tutorial, where Alex shows you how to connect a 1 liter argon gas bottle to the push-in connector on the Kilobaser using a 6 mm O.D. flexible pneumatic tubing. You can either use a gas houseline or a gas bottle as you can see in the video. Gas cylinders can be obtained in several different sizes. For an idea: a 50 liter, 10 liter or 1 liter compressed argon cylinder (all 200 bar) will suffice for approximately 1000, 200 or 20 syntheses, respectively.
You can usually rent gas bottles and get refillings from your local gas supplier. We provide you with the specifications, which you send to your supplier to get the right gas bottle with the correct gas regulator.
