You have to solve for your "plates" yourself utilizing known
standards(every hand packed column is a little different), as for the
column dimensions, it should be as long as tolerable(too long will
increase the longitudinal diffusion of the solute) and as narrow as
possible(to limit the latitudinal diffusion).  Sample volume size should
not exceed 5 % of column volume but preferable be less than 2%.
