Thanks in Advance

All backpacking canister stoves that have the industry-standard threaded fitting can take all canisters that use the industry-standard threaded fitting. This means that Primus, MSR, Markill, Snowpeak, Brunton, Coleman, etc etc compressed gas stoves with the standard threaded fitting can use Primus, MSR, Markill, Snowpeak, Brunton, Coleman, etc etc canisters, including the Slovenian and SEAsian generic canisters.

Camping Gaz (Bleuet), a division of Coleman, has two types of fittings which do not couple with the standard threaded fitting - one the old puncture-type (the 100, 106, 200, and 206 series), the other a coupling that looks like the industry-standard threaded fitting without the threads (the 270 and 470 series). There is one stove that will fit both the industry-standard and Gaz 270/470 coupling, the MSR Superfly.

The fuel in the compressed gas canisters is a mix of butane, isobutane, and propane, ranging from a pure butane or isobutane to various mixes having up to 20% propane with some or all butane and isobutane. The pure isobutane plus propane mix that MSR and Markill sell is the best performer at low temperatures. Pure butane (rarely found these days) is the worst, since butane's vaporization temperature is essentially right at 32F/0C.

There are several other couplings for specialized stoves and canisters made especially for them ("picnic table" stoves, for example, or stoves that use pure propane with no butane or isobutane). These are not for backpacking, however, and of no interest here (except for the occasional slumming expedition in a campground next to the RVs).

The Brunton and MSR canisters are made by the same company in Korea. Same canister, same fuel.

It is generally true that the various brands with the same fitting can be used, but make sure you test the canister/stove fit at home before heading to the hills. The different manufacturers may have different manufacturing tolerances on the threads and the height of the fitting. They may not fit exactly in practice.
