Automatic Developing Chamber (ADC 2)



Automatic Developing Chamber (ADC 2)

The Automatic Developing Chamber offers convenience, safety and reproducibility for isocratic developments of TLC/HPTLC plates and foils with formats 20 x 10 und 10 x 10 cm.

Chromatogram development is the most critical step of Thin-Layer Chromatography. In the Automatic Developing Chamber ADC 2 this step is fully automatic and reproducible, independent of environmental effects. The activity and pre-conditioning of the layer, chamber saturation, developing distance and final drying can be pre-set and automatically monitored by the ADC 2. Two modes of operation are possible: stand-alone with input of parameters via keypad, or remote operation from winCATS with process monitoring, documentation of operating parameters and reporting.

Key features of the Automatic Developing Chamber ADC 2:

  • Fully automatic development of 20 x 10 cm TLC/HPTLC plates.
  • A conventional 20 x 10 cm Twin Trough Chamber is used for development. This way chamber geometry and chromatographic conditions of already existing analytical procedures can be retained, but environmental and operational effects are excluded.
  • Operation in stand-alone mode or under winCATS .
  • The user is freed of all process monitoring responsibilities, operation is fully tracable.
  • The option «Humidity Control» allows reproducible chromatography at defined activity of the layer.

Ordering information:

022.8350: CAMAG ADC 2 Automatic Developing Chamber for fully automatic development of TLC/HPTLC plates of 20 x 10 and 10 x 10 cm. Operation possible in stand-alone mode or under winCATS (option). Including Twin Trough Chamber for 20 x 10 cm plates, EquiLink for winCATS, but without winCATS basic software.

022.8360: Option “Humidity Control” for CAMAG ADC 2 provides for control of layer activity by controling the relative humidity in the developing chamber. This is done by means of salt solutions (salt solution not included). –> This optional module can be easily installed and connected by the user.
