Chromato Sheet Ⅱ

Chromato Sheet Ⅱ is a sheet for thin-layer chromatography (TLC). Chromato Sheet Ⅱ is made by fixing silica gel and fluorescent indicator F254 on "paper". It features the same separation property and reproducibility as the TLC plate.
Because the backing layer is "paper", it is light and compact to store and can be easily cut with scissors.


  • Like the TLC plate, it has excellent separation property and reproducibility
  • It can be cut easily to the desired size using scissors
  • It is not bulky and easy to store and can be filed
  • Memos can be written on the chromatography sheet with a pencil, etc.
  • It does not release any powder
  • Utraviolet Detection (254 nm) is possible
