CAMAG® AMD 2 System Automated Multiple Development
The AMD 2 is a software-controlled HPTLC chamber for gradient development. It is used for difficult separation problems that cannot be solved by isocratic HPTLC.
The separation of complex samples is a challenging task for every chromatographic system, particularly when the sample components span a wide polarity range. The AMD procedure offers an excellent solution as it allows stepwise gradient elution over increasing separation distances. As a result acids, bases, neutral, hydrophilic, and lipophilic substances can be separated in a single AMD run. This makes AMD suitable for a variety of applications. The technique is frequently used in lipid analysis and in routine analysis of drinking water. Pigment formulations with a complex composition, resins as well as additives of mineral oil products are other typical applications of AMD analysis.
