Chromotology is a method widely used in laboratories – it enables efficient separation of chemical mixture or compounds with the aid of absorption. This occurs as the separation of isomers and natural materials.

Chromotology can also be defined as the physical method using the separation of chemical process that distributes all the components of the compound. They are separated into two phases, the stationary and the mobile phase. It was first used in leaf pigment separation and then later more widely used to separate of carotinoid pigments as well as a number of other strategic uses. The process can separate the most sensitive products in biotechnology and delicate scientific studies.

Glassware has to be able to meet certain requirements in the laboratory or facilities they are utilized within. Wheaton understands the importance of using their glassware for the purpose of chromatography and follows through with quality glassware.


Types of Chromotography

Four main types of chromatography are:

Liquid Chromotology

Liquid Chromatography is used in order to test water samples in relation to pollution in rivers, lakes, and larger bodies of water. Metal ions and organic compounds are tested to make sure water is safe. This process tests liquids with the aid of hydrophilic insoluble molecules.

Gas Chromotolgy

Gas Chromotology is utilized in the detection of bombs by security forensics personnel. Fibres are analyzed on clothing and blood splatters at a crime scene. Then helium is utilized to distribute gases through a column with absorbent material to get the results.

Thin-Layer Chromotography

Liquid-Layer Chromotology is a quick way that incorporates absorbent material laid out on flat glass or plastic. This method is commonly used in forensics. This is a simple and immediate way that can determine the purity of organic compounds. It is used in identifying food contamination, to locate pesticide residue and other contaminants.

Paper Chromotography

Paper Chromotology is the most popular method and utilizes strips of paper in the stationary phase. This method is used to separate substances or chemicals with color.

Chromotology Products

Wheaton chromotology products available are:

The Crimpinstein Electric Crimper Decapper is an ergonomically designed and specially engineered to facilitate efficiency and productivity. Comes with cap and seal and varies sizes designed for increased and quick set up allowing flexibility. It is neat and user friendly.
