All Things Chromatography

University of Delaware Class on Thin Layer Chromatography

Karen Brinker and Leslie Allshouse graciously allowed us to join them recently as they led their University of Delaware

UD class

Clinical Physiological Chemistry II class through a drug testing procedure using Thin Layer Chromatography.

Unfortunately, our sound engineer was off his game that day - the background noise you hear in the video is blow driers being used to dry the TLC plates.

Many thanks to Karen and Leslie for letting us be a part of the class!
