Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC)

Thin-layer chromatography (TLC) is a simple and cost-effective way to separate and qualitatively identify samples. One big advantage of TLC is the high efficiency: up to 70 samples can be separated simultaneously on one plate. Due to this high sample throughput in a short time, TLC plates are ideally suited for carrying out screening tests or pilot procedures. In addition to a large selection of different TLC plates, you can find TLC accessories from all well-known manufacturers.

Basic Material: Aluminium, Cellulose, Sil Gel, Silicia Gel
Modification: CN, G, GF, GHL, GHLF, H, HF, HL, HLF, NH2, RP C18, RP-18, RP-18F, RP-2, RP-8
Pore size: 25A, 50A, 60A, 100A, 150A
Format: 10x30mm - 600x360mm

TLC Plates

There are no products matching the selection.

Thin-layer chromatography is performed on a glass, plastic, or aluminium plate, which is coated with a thin layer of adsorbent material. The sample is applied on one end of the plate, and a suitable solvent is allowed to rise up the plate by capillary forces. Since different substances are moving up the thin-layer chromatography plate at different rates, they can be separated, identified and analyzed.

 Advantages in TLC Method of Analysis:

  • Fast and highly economical separation method, requires no sophisticated instruments for simple qualitative results
  • Simple sample preparation with disposable plates
  • Multiple samples can be run simultaneously under identical conditions
  • Easy two-dimensional separation using two distinct mobile phases in different directions
