TLC & HPTLC Documentation System

TLC & HPTLC Documentation System

Camera

Excellent optics coupled to a high quality camera, the TLC.Luminax TLC documentation system, is a high performance and reliable fluorescent and colorimetric TLC imaging system. 

A choice of an 18 megapixel, 14-bit colour camera or a 6.3 MP, 16-bit CCD camera is available. The camera connects to a PC through a USB and can be controlled from the PC.

 

The light-tight cabinet has a UV safety switch and a roll-out tray to place the TLC plates. Plates of size 20x20 cm can be viewed easily. 

 

Illumination

A choice of illumination options with four LED white lights and Ultra-Violet epi-lighting of four short-wave 254nm and long wave 365-366nm from top (two on on either side, total 4 of each) being standard,  adds to the versatility of the system.

 

Ultraviolet transillumination can be provided in 254nm, 312nm and 365-366nm range also for specialised applications. UV lamps use electronic ballast operating at 50 kHz to give instant start, no-humming and flicker-less illumination.

 

Switches to operate all these provided on front panel. Quartz filter glass is used to cut-off stray light emitting from UV lamps. Only pure UV light of selected wavelength without any noise or harmonics is generated.

 

Cabinet

The dark room cabinet has features for safety switch that switches off the UV lights as soon as the door is open. A microprocessor timer is also attached to the UV tubes which auto switches off UV light in case the user forgets to switch it off. This increases the life of the UV lamps.
This TLC doc and analysis system is perfect for pharmaceutical QA/QC labs, diagnostic labs, start-ups, research and academic labs. GLP compliant reports can be generated.

 

The light-tight cabinet has a UV safety switch and a roll-out tray to place the TLC plates. Plates of size 20x20 cm can be viewed easily.
