JustTLC Tutorial

JustTLC is packed with advanced features that make it a simple task to display, analyze and draw reliable conclusions based on TLC plates.

In this tutorial we will guide you through TLC plate analysis by using the two different available analysis modes, Lane Analysis and Spot Analysis. For each analysis mode we start by first creating a new project, then analyzing the plates and finally comparing the obtained data. Lane Analysis is presented first and then follows Spot Analysis.

Before You Start

In order to analyze your TLC plates, you need to have them as digital images, in e.g. jpg or tif format. The images can be obtained by using an ordinary desktop scanner, digital camera or advanced dedicated TLC scanner.

If you do not have any digital images yet, you can download sample images from our website. This tutorial is based on the images “Tutorial - Lanes” and "Internal Standard", which you can download below.
