CAMAG - World Leader in Planar Chromatography

CAMAG Linomat 5

With the CAMAG Linomat 5 samples are sprayed onto TLC/HPTLC plates in the form of bands with nitrogen or compressed air. Sample application is automatic, only changing the syringe (filling, inserting and rinsing) is manual. The Linomat is suitable for routine use.

Key features

  • Semi-automatic sample application, suitable for low-throughout use

  • Spray application of bands

  • Data input and monitoring through software.

  • Online and Offline Use

  • Application of solutions onto any planar medium.

  • Spray-on application of sample volumes between 0.5 and > 50 μL.

  • 100ul and 500ul Syringe Sizes

Software-controlled operation with visionCATS

The CAMAG Linomat 5 is controlled by visionCATS, the new generation of HPTLC software. Instrument handling is now easier and more convenient. Simply select a plate format, fill in the sequence table and starting working. With visionCATS, the CAMAG Linomat 5 can be IQ/OQ qualified and used in a cGMP environment.

Software-controlled operation with winCATS

Alternatively the CAMAG Linomat 5 is controlled by the winCATS Planar Chromatography Manager software. Plate dimensions, number and distance of tracks, names of samples and volumes to be applied onto each track are conveniently programmed and saved in winCATS. The CAMAG Linomat 5 can be IQ/OQ qualified and then used in a cGMP environment.

Operation in stand-alone mode

For those who use the CAMAG Linomat 5 infrequently stand-alone mode is available. Up to ten methods can be entered either manually via the keypad or downloaded to the instrument from a computer running a licensed visionCATS or winCATS program. In stand-alone mode the keypad is used to enter sample application parameters or to select a saved method.
