New Smart Tools for the TLC-lab

Jan 24 2007

Camag in Switzerland has introduced the new product line smartACCESSORIES.

A new series of smart tools designed for TLC and HPTLC should assist users in R+D and routine labs carry out analysis work more efficiently. smartCUT is available from Camag already; smartALERT will be deliverable starting February 2007.

For method development, screening tasks, pre-tests etc, small formats of pre-coated layers are frequently used. smartCUT was designed to cut TLC/HPTLC plates easily and most precisely. It cuts glass plates with a thickness up to 3mm without damaging the sensitive layer. The required size is read directly from the scale. The tool can help saving costs by preventing offcuts.

smartALERT monitors the solvent front while the development of a TLC/HPTLC plate is in progress in a conventional glass tank. The tool gives acoustic and visual notice when the mobile phase has reached the desired developing distance. Permanent observation of the development step is not necessary anymore; smartALERT lets lab staff rather concentrate on other work meanwhile. The development of plates is always 'done right', no 'over- developing' of plates anymore that results in repeating the analysis.
smartALERT is designed to work with TLC/HPLTC glass plates up to 20x20cm and runs on batteries.
