Allows to use Mass Spectrometry for verification of the chemical structure of separated target analytes on a position previously detected by visionCATS on the HPTLC glass plate (20 x 10 cm).

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

The HPTLC PRO Module MS-INTERFACE – anticipated launch in 2024 – will be used to directly elute bands from the plate. Any position on the plate can be selected via the visionCATS software to be automatically eluted using its integrated elution pump. The eluate is transferred into a MS or can be collected for further analysis offline.

As a part of the CAMAG® HPTLC PRO SYSTEM, the Module MS-INTERFACE shares several components with the other modules and has a similar design. Users have the choice to operate a module as stand-alone or as part of the HPTLC PRO SYSTEM. If two or more modules are connected to form a system, a conveyor moves the HPTLC plate from one module to the other.
