What is a delay volume?

Delay Volume in an FPLC System

The delay volume of a system is the volume between the UV detectors flow cell and the fraction collector. It is important to know this volume for collecting peaks accurately. The software will take this volume into account and start fractionation in a delayed manner accordingly.
