Chamber designed to separate analytes using optimized parameters (activation and preconditioning of the HPTLC glass plate (20 x 10 cm) before, conditioning during, and drying after development).


The HPTLC PRO Module DEVELOPMENT is part of the CAMAG® HPTLC PRO SYSTEM – the first fully automated HPTLC system worldwide.

The sophisticated developing chamber of the CAMAG® HPTLC PRO Module DEVELOPMENT revolutionizes the development step: its geometry allows for the full control of the gas phase prior to and during chromatography, enabling the Module DEVELOPMENT to obtain highly reproducible analytical results, while the duration of pre-conditioning and activation of the stationary phase are significantly reduced.

Controlled by the CAMAG® HPTLC Software visionCATS, the Module DEVELOPMENT allows for the preparation of several analysis files, which can be executed sequentially, enabling the autonomous development of up to five different HPTLC glass plates (20 × 10 cm) with up to three different developing solvents. Users have the choice to operate a module as stand-alone or as part of the HPTLC PRO SYSTEM. If two or more modules are connected to form a system, a conveyor moves the HPTLC plate from one module to the other.


Key Features
