Plate Express: Direct Mass Analysis from TLC Plates
Provides simple, automated MS analysis in seconds, directly from TLC plates
The Plate Express is a device that provides a simple, automated means of obtaining mass spectra directly from TLC plates, creating a technique known as TLC/MS. Combined with Advion’s expression compact mass spectrometer (CMS) this becomes TLC/CMS. 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
