CAMAG® HPTLC PRO Module DERIVATIZATION

    Derivatization is often used to visualize specific substance classes after separation on HPTLC glass plates (20 x 10 cm). Due to its unique and patented “micro droplet” spraying technology, the fully-automated HPTLC PRO Module DERIVATIZATION ensures homogeneity and reproducibility in applying derivatization reagents.

The HPTLC PRO Module DERIVATIZATION is part of the CAMAG® HPTLC PRO SYSTEM – the first fully automated HPTLC system worldwide.

The HPTLC PRO Module DERIVATIZATION is designed for the fully automatic derivatization of HPTLC glass plates (20 x 10 cm) and combines two steps – high-precision spraying of derivatization reagents and heating of the plate – in a single device. Employing the patented micro-droplet spraying technology, the Module DERIVATIZATION enables maximum homogeneity in applying derivatization reagents. The integrated plate heating unit ensures a uniform heat distribution across the plate.

To suit the viscosity of the spraying reagents, three different nozzles are available. Spraying at slightly reduced pressure further improves the spraying process. Equipped with a fully automated nozzle changer and cleaning station, the Module DERIVATIZATION effectively avoids cross-contamination.

A sophisticated gripper mechanism inserts the nozzle into the nozzle adapter prior to spraying and moves it afterwards to the integrated cleaning station.

Employing the patented micro-droplet spraying technology, the reagent spraying nozzles generate an extremely fine reagent mist, which evenly distributes in the derivatization chamber and gradually settles down on the plate.

The cleaning station washes the nozzle from the inside and the outside. Meanwhile, the HPTLC plate is moved to the subsequent heating step.

CAMAG® HPTLC PRO Module DERIVATIZATION

For the fully automated micro-droplet spraying of derivatization reagents onto developed HPTLC plates (20 x 10 cm) and the subsequent heating of the plate up to 140°C to complete the derivatization reaction. Three different nozzles with different spraying properties are used depending on the derivatization reagents. The module is equipped with a nozzle changer and a fully automated nozzle cleaning station.
