Thin layer chromatography

SmartChem analyzers use reusable cuvettes via their built-in wash module, allowing a true walkaway experience for operators because there is no cuvette or similar consumable reloading required during the programmed analytical series. With the SmartChem Series, you receive up to 200 samples of loading capacity, which means there is no limit to the number of tests you can run on each sample. There is always an optically checked and ready to use cuvette available after each wash cycle.

The SmartChem wash module and cuvette analytical performance are tested in-house and in many locations where our analyzers operate daily, ensuring no cross-contamination. Additionally, special wash rules can be programmed for specific methods.


SmartChem Series software makes operating your analyser simple. The user interface fully replicates the instrument for the operator, making it easy to set-up and run tests. After loading all required reagents, controls, calibrators and samples, the operator sets up the work plan, including any required IF-THEN testing and reflex testing iterations as per method or laboratory requirements. Once the test routine is finished, all results are presented in a report that can be exported to LIMS

SmartChem intuitive User Interface provides the operator a complete control and visualization of the instrument’s operation and performance. SmartChem 210, 450 and 600 platforms share the same software operation structure, meaning operators can exchange instruments without the need to learn new working modes.

The SmartChem Software suite allows a complete configuration to its different operators: from basic setup and operation to advance users and method configuration / development.
