JustTLC is the new generation of TLC analysis software that gives you the possibility to run chemistry experiments by using just TLC plates.

JustTLC gives you measuring accuracy suitable for high-throughput screening or analytical investigations and reliable results in minutes rather than hours.

  • Perform quantitative analysis on TLC plates in minutes.
  • Automatically detect and truly compare chromatograms in three dimensions.
  • Compare data from spots and plates.
  • Group and average plates for increased statistical reliability.
  • Display graphs and store TLC plates in projects.
  • Export data into Excel or other third party software for further custom analysis.
  • Print graphs, plates and data sheets.
  • Aids compliance with FDA 21 CFR Part 11.
