TLC IMAGING With Doc-It® Imaging Systems Doc-It Systems for Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC) imaging applications include the ChromaDoc-It and MultiDoc-It Systems. These low-cost colour imaging systems enable simple, accurate and repeatable quantitative determination of TLC plates. UVPs ChromaDoc-It and MultiDoc-It Systems feature a high-quality mega pixel, colour digital camera mounted on uniquely designed cabinets. The small footprint housing of the ChromaDoc-It include high intensity 15-watt overhead UV illumination of shortwave (254nm), longwave (365nm) and white/visible light (400750nm). The MultiDoc-It has white light plus two 4-watt UV optional lamps for overhead illumination. The lamps are removable for other uses. TLC Imaging. Whether a coded TLC plate or pencil marker is used, identification details are visible under the UV light. The details are recorded with each image. A unique colour filter, specifically designed to enable the acquisition of TLC images, is included to ensure dazzling colour results. System benefits include: n Repeatable and objective results n Colour images can be produced in seconds n Camera be removed for other applications n Image enhancement for perfect image presentation n Measurement tool displays Rf values n Image history ensures that images adhere to GLP regulations n Image properties and user MultiDoc-It TLC Imaging System comments are stored along with the image n Compact footprint for limited laboratory space MultiDoc-It TLC Imaging System features a durable metal housing and overhead UV. values. Alternatively, use the Doc-ItLS Analysis Software to calculate the Rf values. n Sturdy metal darkroom for high usage laboratories Image History and Reports. All manipulations performed on images are stored in the image history files along with any notes and important details the user wishes to record. The history file remains attached to the image and cannot be erased. These files can be printed and are designed to eliminate fraudulence in accordance with GLP. Multiple report formats can be created. The Qwik-Link icon can be programmed to open any software for image analysis or presentation. n Overhead white light (400-750nm) n 254/365nm 4-watt UV lamps are removable for use in other applications n Megapixel digital colour camera mounts inside the darkroom n Full access door; UV light is off when the door is open, protecting users from UV exposure ChromaDoc-It TLC Imaging System Image Capture. Once illuminated, the TLC plate is photographed by controlling the camera from the Doc-It Acquisition Software which is loaded onto your computer. The software acquires an image using user-defined capture templates. An image can then be adjusted for brightness or contrast and annotated before printing. Other software manipulation features include zoom, pan, sharpen, blur, emboss, rotate and despeckle. Pseudo colours can also be added to the image for publication. The measurement tool directly displays Retardation factor (Rf) ChromaDoc-It TLC Imaging System with high intensity UV n Chromato-Vue® cabinet features high intensity 15-watt 254nm and 365nm UV lamps built into the cabinet n Overhead white light n Mega pixel digital colour camera n Lightweight access curtain blocks ambient light Connect the Digi Camera and Software to your existing computer for easy to use capture, enhancement, documentation and presentation of your TLC images!
