CAMAG HPTLC System with AMD2

High Performance Thin Layer Chromatography is capable of separating organic compounds. Automated multiple development adds flexibility and enhance reproducibility and quantification. The user need to have knowledge of layers and solvents to be used for separation. In the absence of this knowledge, a method development step is necessary. The sensitivity of thin layer chromatography is less than gas or liquid chromatography. However, it is fast, standards and samples can be analyzed simultaneously on the same plate, versatile about the sample solvent and cheapest amongst all the chromatographic applications

Technical Specifications:

Components available are: Linomat 5 for sample application, AMD2 for automated multiple development, twin trough tanks of different sizes for manual single solvent developments, HPTLC vario system for method development, TLC Scanner 3 for detection, TLC/HPTLC documentation system with digital camera, Reprostar TLC/HPTLC viewing box with UV system, TLC plate heater, TLC plate coater, dip tanks, dedicated computer with winCATS Planar Chromatography System Manager.
