CAMAG Automatic TLC Sampler 4 (ATS 4)

Automatic sample application is a key factor for productivity of the HPTLC laboratory. The ATS 4 offers fully automatic sample application for qualitative and quantitative analyses as well as for preparative separations. It is suited for routine use and high sample throughput in mass analysis.

 

Key features

  • Fully automatic sample application, suitable for routine.
  • Application of spots, bands, or rectangles.
  • Data input and monitoring through software.
  • Application of solutions onto any planar medium.
  • Application of sample volumes between 0.1 and 5 μL by contact transfer.
  • Spray-on application of sample volumes between 0.5 and > 50 μL.
  • Application of solutions onto any planar medium (FreeMode).
  • Heated Spray Nozzle (option)

Operation of the ATS 4 with visionCATS HPTLC Software


Precise sample application is a crucial factor for the quality of the HPTLC analysis and the results obtained. When using visionCATS HPTLC software with its easy to navigate user interface to control the ATS 4, a fully automated sample application for routine use and high sample throughput is supported.

The dialog box for instrument parameters offers user-friendly default combinations. For instance, the user can select the solvent type most similar to the solvent actually used. The software will then automatically adapt the instrument defaults to optimize its application regarding viscosity, volatility and surface tension. Another example of a pre-selected combination is the filling/rinsing quality which determines how often the syringe is rinsed, the filling process repeated, etc. All these pre-selections can be individually adjusted to a specific task.


The dialog for entering the sequence of samples is clearly arranged and easy to use. Tracks can be automatically arranged evenly spaced across the plate, sample designations can be inserted from a prepared list, etc. The program progress is displayed on screen as long as the instrument remains connected to the computer.
