microTLC uses Thin Layer Chromatography (TLC)
St. Petersburg FL, USA – Field Forensics announces the availability of microTLCTM, a portable, fast and easy to use solution for rapid pre-screening and presumptive identification of drugs and explosive mixtures.
In addition to achieving package miniaturization using only one thin layer chromatography (TLC) plate, the microTLC has other innovations including an integrated ultra-violet light source, digital video camera for plate analysis and record management, extended battery operation, together with easy menu-driven operations.
TLC is an established laboratory procedure that identifies compounds belonging to the same general chemical class. Now the microTLC enables both laboratory and field analysis to be performed by first responders and forensics scientists.

PLYMOUTH MI, USA – Perceptron, Inc. announced that Perceptron has been recognized by the General Motors Company for providing state-of-the-art measurement technology on the new Corvette program.
Jeffrey M. Armstrong, Perceptron’s President and CEO, said, “We are extremely proud that General Motors (GM) selected Perceptron for this landmark endeavor. We have enjoyed a strong relationship supporting GM for many years, and it is gratifying that our 3D industrial measurement systems were specifically identified by GM as being one of four new, critical technologies that enabled GM to produce the ‘strongest and most precisely built Corvette in its six-decade history.’
