Spotting samples using a fixed volume capillary is the simplest and cheapest way of sample application for conventional TLC. Precision of the applied volume, exact positioning and compactness of application zone determine the quality of the final result.
With the Linomat 5 samples are sprayed onto TLC/HPTLC plates in the form of bands with nitrogen or compressed air. Application is automatic, only changing the syringe (filling, inserting and rinsing) is manual. The Linomat 5 is suitable for small sample throughput.
