TLC Plates

Accelerating lab test speed—allowing much higher efficiencies and customization without sacrificing test quality.

Improving TLC Plate Technology

Diamond Analytics Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC) plates accelerate lab test speed—allowing much higher efficiencies and customization without sacrificing test quality. To achieve this result, Diamond Analytics' TLC plates have reduced or eliminated the binder. This breakthrough leads to enhanced characterization and eliminates additional processes. Because many labs have specific requirements for certain tests, Diamond Analytics' TLC plates allow lab technicians and scientists to fully customize plates, providing more test control and delivering new levels of homogeneity for testing consistency. more
