TubeMate is a tool used to insert and remove gauze-retaining springs in metal tubes. Once the spring is partially inserted into the non-sampling end of the tube, TubeMate grips the spring and enables it to be twisted into place with very little effort. Reversing this process aids the removal of the springs when unpacking old tubes.
- Fits into stainless steel and inert-coated stainless steel tubes
- Slots into the curved design of the gauze-retaining spring
- Enables the gauze-retaining spring to be securely positioned after the final bed of sorbent and sorbent-retaining gauze
- Can be used to position sorbent-retaining gauzes
- Can be used to position material in metal tubes for direct desorption

For use with gauze retaining springs and stainless steel/inert tubes
The TubeMate is simple to use, re-useable and has multiple uses – it is recommended for users of stainless steel and inert-coated stainless steel tubes (6 mm or ¼″ o.d.) who undertake packing and unpacking of thermal desorption tubes with either sorbent or solid sample. The grooved end is used to position gauze-retaining springs, while the non-grooved end is used to position sorbent-retaining gauzes (not recommended for positioning the primary gauze) and solid sample within the tube. A trap alignment tool can be used to complement the TubeMate and is provided in the shipping kit of all Markes’ instruments.
