Future Developments in TLRC

The new range of detectors have significantly improved sensitivity and resolution; most have a resolution of under 1 mm and the phosphor imagers are able to obtain a resolution of as low as 0.025 mm. Also, current detectors are now able to detect spots of radioactivity on a plate containing less than 10 d.p.m. in a relatively short period of time. As sensitivity and resolution are continually improving, the future major development of TLRC probably lies in the realm of full automation using robots, from the application of multiple samples to the TLC plate, to development and drying, transport to the detector, measurement and finally printing of the chromatogram and quantitative results.
