Basic Herbal System

HPTLC system designed for qualitative analyses including image documentation with TLC Visualizer 2, including visionCATS software for image evaluation and control of instruments. Suitable for laboratories dealing with few samples.


Linomat 5

Automatic Developing Chamber 2 (ADC 2)
The CAMAG Automatic Developing Chamber 2 (ADC 2) offers convenience, safety and reproducibility for isocratic developments of TLC/HPTLC plates and foils with the format 20 x 10 cm.

Chromatogram Immersion Device
For proper reagent transfer, the chromatogram must be immersed and withdrawn at a controlled uniform speed. By maintaining a well defined vertical speed and immersion time, derivatization conditions can be standardized and «tide marks», which can interfere with densitometric evaluation, are avoided.

TLC Plate Heater 3
The CAMAG TLC Plate Heater 3 is designed for heating TLC/HPTLC plates to a selected temperature after a derivatization reagent has been applied.

visionCATS stands for ease of use and intuitive simplicity. The software organizes the workflow of HPTLC, controls the involved CAMAG instruments, and manages data. The easy to navigate user interface effectively guides the user through the chromatographic process – from definition of samples and substances to reporting of results.
