Automated TLC plate reader
Plate Express is a device that provides a simple, automated means of obtaining mass spectra directly from TLC plates, combined with Advion’s expression® Compact Mass Spectrometer (CMS) creating a technique known as TLC/CMS.
Direct mass analysis from TLC plates
Using this technique chemists can quickly and confidently identify products even in complex mixtures without additional sample preparation.
- Identify spots in <1 minute
- Avoid the risk of overloading the mass spectrometer – TLC spots contain the ideal amount of sample for mass spectrometry
- Software controlled – spectra obtained within a few mouse clicks
- Simplify the process of obtaining spectra – ideal for multi-user labs
We would recommend the Advion expression CMS to literally any research laboratory, big or small. The versatility of the system is truly impressive.
