The actual sample dosage is performed with a disposable capillary pipette, which is precisely guided, thus ensuring that the chromatogram can be scanned automatically according to a programmed pattern.
The CAMAG Nanomat 4 is suitable for:
Conventional TLC plates including self-coated plates up to 20 x 20 cm.
HPTLC plates 10 x 10 cm and 20 x 10 cm.
TLC and HPTLC sheets up to 20 x 20 cm.
The Capillary pipettes are loaded into the dispenser in magazines. Capillaries of 0.5,1, 2, and 5 μL volume are available. Each capillary size requires an appropriate dispenser magazine.
With the Universal Capillary Holder capillary pipettes are taken from the dispenser, filled with sample solution and then placed against the applicator head of the Nanomat 4.
The TLC/HPTLC Sprayer consists of a charger and a pump unit with two kinds of spray heads. Spray head type A is for spray solutions of normal viscosity, e.g. lower alcohol solutions. Spray head type B is for liquids of higher viscosity, e.g. sulfuric acid reagents.
