High performance thin layer chromatography (HPTLC) is an invaluable quality assessment tool for the evaluation of botanical materials. It allows for the analysis of a broad number of compounds both efficiently and cost effectively. Additionally, numerous samples can be run in a single analysis thereby dramatically reducing analytical time. With HPTLC, the same analysis can be viewed sing different wavelengths of light thereby providing a more complete profile of the plant than is typically observed with more specific types of analyses.
