  • Custom Labware: allows you to define various liquid containers on your deck (vials, tubes, sample reservoirs).
  • Custom Functions: provides you with functions to track the liquid level and operate at a consistent position with respect to the meniscus (e.g. for mixing applications).

Thin Layer Chromotography (TLC) is a simple but powerful method that enables us to physically separate the chemicals in a solution. Our qTLC app (https://qtlc.app/) makes quantification of compounds easy.
