The Nanomat 4 serves for easy application of samples in the form of spots onto TLC plates, precisely positioned and without damage to the layer. The Nanomat 4 is a device for contact transfer application using capillaries. The actual sample dosage is performed with a disposable capillary pipette, which is precisely guided, thus ensuring that the chromatogram can be documented and evaluated automatically according to a programmed pattern. The Nanomat 4 is suitable for any plate format 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.
