Plate Express™

Automated TLC plate reader

Plate Express™ is a device that provides a simple, automated means of obtaining mass spectra directly from TLC plates, combined with Advion Interchim Scientific’s expression® Compact Mass Spectrometer (CMS) creating a technique known as TLC/CMS.

Direct mass analysis from TLC plates

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
