HPTLC is a flexible and cost-efficient analytical technique. It is used in research and for routine quality control purposes. It allows for analysis of divers analytes gained directly from any complex matrix.

Besides the methods within the well-known application fields for HPTLC, there are many further useful applications. Because of its versatility, HPTLC is also a favoured analytical technique in lipidomic, metabolomic and medical research, to name a few.

CAMAG’s HPTLC systems are designed to meet your needs for successful qualitative and quantitative analysis of any (non-volatile) analyte gained from divers sample material.

HPTLC is a powerful tool to rapidly compare several samples in parallel, check for adulteration, monitor purity and stability, and identify and quantify active ingredients.

Equip your lab with the CAMAG products that are most suitable for your specific needs and consult with us in the search for the solution to your analytical problems.

Customer Testimonial

"HPTLC is our technique for the analysis of complex mixtures from Lipidomics or Petroleomics, because all substances in the sample, including those which may have not been separated, are stored and can be detected by multiple techniques on the same plate. In this respect, CAMAG has always developed and manufactured robust and modular equipment to turn HPTLC advantages into a reality."

Dr. Vicente L. Cebolla, CSIC Scientific Researcher at the Instituto de Carboquímica, Zaragoza, Spain
