CAMAG - World Leader in Planar Chromatography


The CAMAG Basic Kit has been composed so that a lab can efficiently start working with TLC. This assembly is configured to include everything you need to get started, while also allowing the future possibility of upgrading to a complete system for quantitative TLC without items becoming redundant. The kit comprises of the following items: 

Nanomat 4 and Capillary Dispenser
The CAMAG Nanomat 4 serves for easy application of samples in the form of spots onto TLC and HPTLC layers, precisely positioned and without damage to the layer.

Twin Trough Chambers
CAMAG Twin Trough chambers offer several ways to specifically affect the TLC/HPTLC separation in order to improve it.

smartALERT Solvent Front Monitor
CAMAG smartALERT for dependable monitoring of TLC/HPTLC plate development in a glass development chamber.

smartCUT Plate Cutter
Convenient and precise cutting of pre-coated TLC/HPTLC glass plates.

Reagent Sprayer
This all glass reagent sprayer is a low cost alternative to the TLC/HPTLC Sprayer. It comes with a rubber pump but may also be operated from a compressed air or nitrogen supply.

UV Cabinet 4
The UV Cabinet 4 is designed for inspecting thin-layer chromatograms or other objects under UV light in absence of ambient light.

TLC/HPTLC Pre-coated plates
In most cases modern TLC utilizes precoated layers. Not only are they more convenient, their quality is superior to that of layers prepared from the type of adsorbents available for self-coating.
