TLC Plates (Thin Layer Chromatography)

Rediscover the Power of Thin Layer Chromatography Using TLC Plates

thin layer chromatography tlc platesTLC Plates (thin layer chromatography) might be one of the most undervalued methods of chromatographic analysis for the separation and identification of chemical substances.

Thin Layer Chromatography provides:

  • Rapid results and inexpensive operation
  • Qualitative data for compound identification and purity
  • The ability to monitor the progress of chemical reactions
  • Aid in developing optimal methods
  • Quantitative data with the proper instrumentation

Benefits of TLC

TLC is the chromatographers’ fast-lane choice for:

  • Ultra-fast solvent and gradient optimization prior to HPLC
  • Determining the number of major compounds present in a mixture
  • Quick assessment and monitoring of both biotransformations and synthetic reactions
  • Choosing the appropriate solvent system for column and flash chromatography
  • Simultaneous analysis of several samples under identical conditions

Enhanced quality control & extensive product portfolio

Our plates are manufactured with stringent production controls. TLC layers are smooth, homogenous, uniform, and reproducible from plate-to-plate and lot-to-lot.
