CAMAG TLC Scanner 4

CAMAG logo

The CAMAG TLC Scanner 4 is the most advanced workstation for densitometric evaluation of TLC/HPTLC chromatograms and other planar objects.

Key features

  • Measurement of reflection, either in absorbance or fluorescence mode.
  • Object formats up to 20cm x 20cm.
  • Spectral range 190 - 900nm.
  • Automatic start of all lamps: deuterium, halogen-tungsten, and high pressure mercury lamp.
  • Data step resolution 25–200µm.
  • Scanning speed 1–100 mm/s
  • Spectrum recording up to 100 nm/s
  • Automatic selection of electronic amplification
  • Rapid data transfer

Evaluation with visionCATS

visionCATS controls the CAMAG TLC Scanner 3 and the CAMAG TLC Scanner 4 and enables quantitative evaluation of the generated densitometric data. To determine the substance concentration in a sample, five different quantification functions (e.g. linear and polynomial) are available. Several scanning steps (e.g. scanning the plate after development and scanning the same plate after derivatization) and up to five different evaluations can be performed (single wavelength, multiple wavelengths or a combination of measurements in absorption and fluorescence detection mode).

The following packages are available

  • The Scanner Multi Wavelength Package offers in one analytical file the possibility to evaluate up to five scanning steps. A scanning step may contain a single wavelength, multiple wavelengths with up to 31 selected wavelengths or a combination of measurements in absorption and fluorescence detection mode.
  • The Scanner Quantification Package allows to quantify each individual substance on the plate. Five different quantification functions are available for evaluation to determine the concentration of the substance in a sample. In one analysis file up to five evaluation steps can be performed in multiple plate states (e.g. plate after development and same plate after derivatization).
  • The Spectrum Scanning Package includes the measurement of the spectrum of each individual substance on the plate including the evaluation of the substance purity by comparison with reference standard
