MACHEREY-NAGEL offers a versatile range of ready-to-use TLC and HPTLC layers, which are the result of 50 years of continuous research and development in thin layer chromatography.


The comprehensive range of TLC products from MACHEREY-NAGEL includes:

Macherey-Nagel

TLC/HPTLC glass plates

ADAMANT, SIL G or SIL HD are silica layers on glass backing. It’s hard to imagine a laboratory without our reliable TLC and HPTLC glass plates.

Macherey-Nagel

ALUGRAM and POLYGRAM TLC/HPTLC sheets are easy to handle, lightweight and flexible.

High performance silica on ALUGRAM Xtra sheets provides outstanding wettability for precise colourisation results. Moreover these TLC sheets are easy to cut with scissors.

Accessories

In addition to high quality TLC plates and sheets, we offer staining reagents and developing chambers, as well as introductory sets for educational purposes.

TLC Backings & Supports
Macherey-nagel Macherey-nagel

TLC/HPTLC plates and sheets consist of an adsorbent stationary phase on a backing support.

MACHEREY-NAGEL offers three different backings:
 

  • Glass plates
  • Aluminium sheets
  • Polyester sheets

Properties of TLC backings

Glass Plates

  • Thickness (approx.): 1.3mm
  • Weight and storage requirements: high
  • Torsional strength: ideal
  • Temperature stability: high
  • Susceptible to breakage: yes
  • Can be cut with scissors: no
  • Chemical resistance against solvents: high
  • Chemical resistance against mineral acids and concentrated ammonia: high
  • Suitability for aqueous detection reagents: depends on phases (layer)

Glass plates are robust, heat proof and chemically resistant to all common mobile phases and visualisation reagents. They are the traditional option in TLC/HPTLC and are widely used in the pharmaceutical sector and other laboratory environments.


Aluminium Sheets - ALUGRAM Xtra

  • Thickness (approx.): 0.15mm
  • Weight and storage requirements: low
  • Torsional strength: relatively high
  • Temperature stability: high
  • Susceptible to breakage: no
  • Can be cut with scissors: yes
  • Chemical resistance against solvents: high
  • Chemical resistance against mineral acids and concentrated ammonia: low
  • Suitability for aqueous detection reagents: ALUGRAM: low to moderate, ALUGRAM Xtra: moderate to high

Aluminium sheets are easy to handle, lightweight and flexible. High performance silica on ALUGRAM Xtra sheets provides outstanding wettability for precise colourisation results, even with 100% aqueous detection reagents. Moreover, ALUGRAM Xtra sheets are easy to cut with scissors. No flaking of silica occurs!


Polyester Sheets – POLYGRAM

  • Thickness (approx.): 0.2mm
  • Weight and storage requirements: low
  • Torsional strength: low
  • Temperature stability: maximum 185°C
  • Susceptible to breakage: no
  • Can be cut with scissors: yes
  • Chemical resistance against solvents: high
  • Chemical resistance against mineral acids and concentrated ammonia: high
  • Suitability for aqueous detection reagents: good

Polyester sheets are easy to handle, lightweight and flexible, and can also be cut with scissors. Developed POLYGRAM sheets can also be stored for documentation in laboratory notebooks.

TLC and HPTLC

Features of modern TLC/HPTLC

The success of thin layer chromatography as a highly efficient microanalytical separation method is based on a large number of advantageous properties:

  • High sample throughput in a short time
  • Suitable for screening tests
  • Pilot procedure for HPLC and Flash chromatography
  • After separation the analytical information can be stored for a longer period of time (the TLC ready-to-use layer acts as storage medium for data)
  • Separated substances can be subjected to subsequent analytical procedures (e.g., IR, MS) at a later date
  • Rapid and cost-efficient optimisation of the separation due to easy change of mobile and stationary phase

'TLC' and 'HPTLC' are both widely used terms in laboratory environments, but what is the difference? At MACHEREY-NAGEL, we define 'HPTLC' where at least one of the following criteria is being fulfilled:

  • Layers with particle size 2–10 μm
  • Layers prefixed with 'Nano'
  • Modified layers

Narrow fractionation of HPTLC silica particles allows:

  • Sharper separations
  • Shorter developing times
  • Shorter migration distances
  • Smaller samples needed
  • Increased detection sensitivity (compared to TLC)
