Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC and HPTLC)
Simple, fast, and highly versatile, thin-layer chromatography (TLC) is used for a broad spectrum of substances. As a pioneer in TLC, Merck introduced the first pre-coated plates on the market. Today, we offer a wide range of reliable plates and regularly roll out new products.
Whether manual or automated (high-performance TLC [HPTLC]), TLC delivers a number of benefits. It cuts costs, eliminates complicated instruments and the sample preparation step, is easy to reproduce, and runs multiple samples under identical conditions. What’s more, TLC easily adapts to the preparative scale for PLC.
