• KIMBLE - Tlc Dev Tank , EA1.
  • Imported from USA.
The standard 20 cm x 20 cm TLC plate tank is difficult to use with 10 cm x 10 cm plates, so the “SHORTY” tank was developed; it will also accommodate 5 x 10 or 10 x 20 plates, turned long side down. Both have a centering baffle to support plates during development and are supplied with lids. Lids are available with holes drilled for #0 stoppers to allow addition of reagents without disturbing the equilibrium of the saturated environment. Kontes Brand TLC Developing Tanks are manufactured from sturdy molded glass bricks that will withstand regular use for many years. The clear sides allow unobstructed visual inspection of TLC plates up to 20 x 20 cm in size. The top of the tanks are ground flat to match the lids and the edges are beveled to remove any sharp edges. The bottoms are ground to provide a flat, level surface. A raised ridge along the inside bottom allows the simultaneous development of two 20 x 20 cm or four 5 x 20 cm plates.
