CAMAG smartALERT Solvent Front Monitor

CAMAG smartALERT for dependable monitoring of TLC/HPTLC plate development in a glass development chamber.

 

The «classical» way of developing a chromatogram in TLC and HPTLC is to place the plate in a chamber containing developing solvent. Driven by capillary action the developing solvent moves up the layer until the desired developing distance is reached. With the aid of a stop watch or a timer the chromatographer estimates when the development process is about to finish.

But this may happen: Focusing on other work while the TLC development is in progress, the lab technician forgets to look at the watch. As a result chromatography is stopped too late; the solvent moved up too far, the analysis is ruined and needs to be repeated.

With smartALERT the chromatographer does not 'forget' the TLC plate in the developing chamber anymore:

  • The desired developing distance is set by the user.
  • A light beam and a sensor monitors the selected distance.
  • As soon as the front has reached this position, visual and acoustic signals alert the operator.

Key features

  • guarantees that the developing distance will always be accurate and according to the method.
  • gives acoustic and visual notice when the mobile phase has reached the desired developing distance.
  • replaces the timer or the stop watch.
  • lets you concentrate on other lab work.
  • is an intelligent and dependable assistant; yet very easy to operate with just one button.
  • works with tanks and for glass plates; sizes 20 x 20 cm, 20 x 10 cm, 10 x 10 cm.
  • saves costs because the development is always 'done right'; no waste because of 'over-developed' plates.
  • allows several developments with several smartALERTs at the same time; four different alarm sounds can be selected.
  • runs on batteries: up to 1000 developments.
