CAMAG Derivatizer – New spraying device for the automated derivatization of TLC plates

Sep 28 2016 Comments 0

An experienced and skilled analyst using a manual spraying device for derivatization may produce a rather homogeneous reagent distribution on the TLC plate, but even so, reproducible results are out of reach. With the new CAMAG Derivatizer, this step is no longer user-dependent. The CAMAG Derivatizer is an automated spraying device which sets a new standard of reproducibility in the reagent transfer onto TLC plates by employing an innovative 'micro droplet' spraying technology (patent pending). The CAMAG Derivatizer ensures homogeneous and reproducible application of all common reagents. To meet the diverging physicochemical properties of the different reagents, e.g. acidity or viscosity, four different colour-coded spray nozzles are employed.

In addition to the significantly increased reagent distribution homogeneity, the Derivatizer offers further advantages compared to manual spraying:

  • Environmentally friendly and safe handling through a closed system
  • Intuitive handling and easy cleaning
  • Low reagent consumption through efficient operation (4 mL for 20 x 20 cm plates and 2 mL for 20 x 10 cm plates)
  • Reproducible and user-independent results.

The CAMAG Derivatizer will be available in October 2016 for two different formats (20 x 20 and 20 x 10 cm). Visit the website for more information.
