Customer Training at CAMAG Head Office in Switzerland

CAMAG was founded by the German Chemist Dr. Dieter Jänchen (1927-2018) in 1958 as ‘Chemie-Erzeugnisse und Adsorptionstechnik Muttenz AG’. The first product produced was activated aluminium oxide, still sold today in bulk quantities. In 1961, CAMAG entered the analytical field of Thin-Layer Chromatography (TLC). CAMAG extended its market position over the years to become the world leader in instrumental High-Performance Thin-Layer Chromatography (HPTLC). In most analytical laboratories in the world, you will find at least one of CAMAG’s instruments.

In September 2019, CAMAG had launched its fully automated next generation HPTLC instruments under the name of CAMAG HPTLC PRO SYSTEM.

Module APPLICATION and Module DEVELOPMENT had been launched. The remaining Modules will be launched sequentially over the next two years. Then, the first fully automated sample analysis and evaluation system for routine quality control in HPTLC analysis will exist. New patents speak for the value of this innovation, leaving customers with elevated improvement in cost efficiency.

South African Customers had the privilege of being trained on CAMAG instrumentation at CAMAG Head Office in Switzerland. The customers main focus was on the analysis of samples from Underexplored Medicinal Plants from Sub-Saharan Africa utilising the CAMAG Automatic TLC Sampler(ATS4), Automatic Development Chamber 2(ADC2), Derivatiser, TLC Visualiser 2 and TLC Scanner 4. The operation of the CAMAG HPTLC PRO SYSTEM was also demonstrated to them.
