Chromatography is the science of the separation of components from a mixture. These mixtures could be anything from food, pharma, herbal, forensic or textile samples.
As food/ food components are very complex in nature, analysis of foods is a very challenging sector. Food samples often come with heavy matrices due to the presence of primary metabolites like carbohydrates, lipids and proteins.
Anchrom is the only CAMAG HPTLC-authorized distributor in India. HPTLC analysis is performed in a stepwise manner i.e. sample preparation, application, development, scanning and derivatization if required.
In TLC/HPTLC, basically, two phases are important i.e. stationary phase and mobile phase. The gas phase also plays an important role if we are giving saturation.
The monograph is a scientific document covering plant research from different aspects. It includes information about the particular plant like scientific name, other common names, morphological and anatomical characteristics, chemical constituents, TLC/HPTLC/HPLC/GC identity test, adulterants/substitutes, pharmacology, major therapeutic claims, safety aspects, and dose.
Reverse engineering/deformulation is a complex process consisting of several phases, such as the identification and quantification of formulation components. It is used at the beginning of the development of a generic drug product.
HPTLC is the only chromatographic technique that allows us to see/record results in the form of pictures. Visual detection and image recording are one of the best features of the HPTLC system. For image documentation, a suitable image acquisition system can be used e.g. CAMAG smartDigi or CAMAG visualizer.
Thin Layer Chromatography is a separation technique which is used to separate mixtures of organic compounds. This technique is in practice since 1960 and is been used for the separation of a lot of different compounds.
