Thin Layer Chromatography
Fast separation of a broad range of substances in a single run
Thin layer chromatography is a simple, fast and highly versatile separation tool for both qualitative and quantitative analysis. The fields of application cover virtually all classes of substances including pesticides, steroids, alkaloids, lipids, nucleotides, glycosides, carbohydrates, fatty acids, and many others.
Thin Layer Chromatography by Merck Millipore provides:
- A cheap separation method without the need for sophisticated instruments
- Simplified sample preparation because plates are disposable
- Multiple samples (up to 72) can be run simultaneously under identical conditions
- Easy 2 dimensional separation by using two distinct mobile phases in different directions
In general, classical thin layer chromatography is manually performed whereas instrumental high-performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC) can be automated. Furthermore, TLC can be easily upscaled to preparative scale for PLC (preparative layer chromatography).
Unique quality from the pioneer in thin layer chromatography
Merck Millipore has been pioneering thin layer chromatography by introducing the first pre-coated products and by regularly adding innovative, new products in order to meet the needs of today’s demanding TLC or HPTLC applications.
Merck Millipore provides reliable TLC plates in a wide range of chemistries, sizes and backings to suit many application needs. These thin layer plates combine robustness with maximum surface homogeneity, resulting in unsurpassed separation performance. HPTLC plates give even further increased sensitivity and facilitate standardization and validation procedures.
Merck Millipore’s quality is famous, proven by countless TLC applications on Merck Millipore plates in the literature.
