General description

50 Glass plates 20 x 10 cm
HPTLC plates deliver fast and quantitative analysis of complex samples for manual or automated use. Our HPTLC silica plates work three times faster than conventional TLC plates – and they are more sensitive. The particle sizes range in HPTLC is between 4-8 µm, which creates a smoother surface and a higher separation power than TLC plates.


Glass HPTLC Silica gel 60 F₂₅₄ plates. Silica gel HPTLC plates size 20 x 10 cm, 50 sheets.

High-Performance Thin-Layer Chromatography: A Fast and Efficient Fingerprint Analysis Method for Medicinal Plants

In this article we present several HPTLC applications and analytical standards for ginsenosides.

Separation of Steviol Glycosides by HPTLC: Introducing a New Stevia Extract Reference Material

HPTLC is an efficient method to determine Steviol Glycosides content in Stevia using our HPTLC plates and reference materials, including a new introduced Stevia extract reference material.


Sildenafil Citrate USP Method Using HPTLC Plates for the Limit of Imidazole Test

In the present study we demonstrate compliance of silica gel 60 F254 HPTLC plates with USP requirements, and how HPTLC plates are suitable for the Sildenafil citrate-Limit of Imidazole test.

Chromatographic Testing of Black Pepper According to the United States Pharmacopeia

Powdered black pepper was chosen as example for dietary supplements, being a source for pierine. It is tested according to the current United States Pharmacopeia (USP) guidelines using HPTLC and HPLC.
