TLC PLATE STREAKERS
A simple device for uniformly streaking TLC plates.
· Unit consists of a stainless steel base with an adjustable holder for a glass reservoir
· Supplied complete with glass capillaries, stainless steel capillaries and instructions
· Reference: Journal of Chemical Education, Vol. 47, No. 5, May 1970, page 404, “A Simple Streaker for Preparative Layer Chromatography,” L.J. Altman, James R.Trudell
· Glassware manufactured from 33 expansion, low extractable borosilicate glass conforming to USP Type I and ASTM E438, Type I, Class A requirements
To operate, the streaker is placed over the edge of the counter top and the plate to be streaked is positioned parallel to it. The bent capillary tip is then adjusted so that it lightly touches the plate. The reservoir is filled with the solution to be chromatographed, and by moving the unit back and forth along the counter edge, a uniform streak is accomplished.
