Septa is a septum material that is drilled with a syringe needle to extract samples from vials. Septums come in a variety of configurations and are made up of a variety of materials. Septums are usually made of rubber (natural or synthetic) or silicone. You can also cover one or both sides with PTFE. Be sure to choose a solvent-compatible septum.
