TLC Visualizer


TLC Visualizer captures images that are, without a doubt, of the best quality in the field. The system provides illumination with direct and/or transmitted white light as well as with direct UV 254 nm and UV 366 nm light. An integrated powerful 12 bit camera with highly linear CCD chip and excellent color reproduction captures the images with the whole process conveniently controlled by the TLC software.

About TLC Visualizer

The TLC Visualizer with winCATS is...

compliant with the requirements of GMP/GLP and can be IQ/OQ qualified. If you want to use the instrument in a 21 CFR Part 11 environment, the option 21 CFR Part 11«compliance ready» is required for each winCATS workstation.


Key features

  • Quick and intuitive operation.
  • Optimized light sources for improved homogeneity of the illumination of a plate under UV 254, UV 366, white light (direct light and/or transmitted light).
  • Powerful high resolution 12 bit CCD camera with outstanding linearity.
  • Automatic image optimization for all illumination modes in combination with fixed capture parameters ensure highest reproducibility of images from the same plate. This provides the basis for reliable comparison of images taken from different plates.
  • Saving of all images taken of the same plate in a single analysis file together with all other analytical data.
  • Option «Professional Image Enhancement» provides perfect illumination based on individual measurements and corrections of each instrument, advanced clean plate correction, and built-in matrix color correction.
  • Option «Image Comparison Viewer» for comparing selected tracks from multiple images / plates on the same screen. For quantitative evaluation images captured with winCATS can be exported to the optional evaluation software «VideoScan».

Image Comparison and Professional Image Enhancement

Image Comparison View: Selected tracks of images taken of the same plate under UV 254 nm (20, 25), white light (35, 40)and UV 366 nm (all other tracks) are compared

VideoScan Software

Digital Image Evaluation

The VideoScan software allows evaluation of images captured with TLC Visualizer or DigiStore 2. The program is rapid and easy to use. Flexible features such as profile comparison of tracks from several chromatograms, evaluation of tracks with variable distance, distorted tracks etc. are available. Chromatograms can be evaluated at any time, even years after capture. Quantitative evaluation can be performed via peak-area and/or peak-height. Single or multilevel calibrations (linear or polynomial regression) can be selected.

Key features

  • Rapid and easy to use.
  • Integration of the analog curves can be performed automatically or manually.
  • Quantitative evaluation can be performed via peak-area and/or peak-height.
  • Single or multi level calibration (linear or polynomial regression) can be selected. The program VideoScan complies with GMP/GLP and can be IQ/OQ qualified.
