Quantitative HPTLC in Assaying Body Fluids for Drugs and Metabolites

  • W. Ritter
Part of the Methodological Surveys in Biochemistry and Analysis book series (MSBA, volume 12)


High-performance thin-layer chromatography (HPTLC) is an instrumentalized approach, more reliable than conventional TLC, and superior in other respects such as sensitivity. Commercially available instrumentation, e.g. for plate development in its different modes, is considered, and the optimization of a spotting device (seeAppendix); Examples of applications are given later (art. #D-5).
