Analtech TLC Plates

From pharmaceutical development to quality control in soils and foods to forensic studies, Thin Layer Chromatography is used in labs around the world. 
TLC is a relatively simple and established technique. First developed in the 1930s and popularized in the 1950s and 60s, TLC remains an essential technology because it is fast, economical, reliable, and has certain inherent advantages for the analyst.
Today, TLC is used in thousands of laboratories all over the world. Analtech, Inc. is proud to supply these labs with the highest quality TLC plates and accessories and to work with educational institutions to help train future generations of scientists
 
 Analtech produces a wide range of TLC plates using a variety of adsorbents, including many types of Silica Gels, Aluminum Oxides, and Cellulosics.
Analtech uses a combination of code letters to identify the many modified adsorbent layers on a TLC plate. The list below describes the Silica  Gel modifications:
 
H - Binder-free adsorbent
G - (Gypsum) Calcium Sulfate  Hemihydrate binder
HL - Hard Layer organic binder
GHL - Hard Layer inorganic binder plus Calcium Sulfate (Gypsum)
RPS - Hydrocarbon Impregnated (Silica Gel) Reversed Phase Separation
RP2 - Ethyl Bonded Silica Gel Reversed Phase for HPTLC
RP8 - Octyl Bonded Silica Gel Reversed Phase for HPTLC
RP18 - Octadecyl Bonded Silica Gel Reversed Phase for HPTLC
F - Fluorescent indicator UV254. (Can be added to any adsorbent.)
HPTLC - High Performance Thin  Layer Chromatography
CN -  Cyanoethyl Bonded Silica Gel
NH2 - Aminopropyl Bonded Silica Gel
