Productive parallel chemistry for low volumes
Carousel 6-place, Reaction Station, Metz Syn10
Reduced volume reaction kits extend the working volume of the range down as low as 1ml for applications including library generation and screening, where samples and reagents are expensive or scarce
Radleys Discovery Technologies has introduced a new range of reduced volume reaction vessels further extending the utility of its Carousel 6-place, Carousel Reaction Station, and Metz Syn10 products.
For solution phase chemistry and solid supported reagent based syntheses the RDT Carousel 6-place and Reaction Station have become international industry standards for productive controlled parallel reactions of 5-250ml volume, RDT claims.
However in applications including library generation and in many screening processes where samples and reagents are expensive or sparsely available, the new reduced volume reaction kits usefully extend the working volume of the Carousel range down as low as 1ml.
To achieve the reduced volume, aluminium inserts are inserted into the reaction stations to maintain excellent thermal transfer to the smaller diameter glass reaction vessels.
Using reduced volume glass reaction tubes enables more efficient stirring of small samples than could be achieved in the standard larger vessels.
In addition the increased surface area to volume ratio achieved with small samples, compared to larger reaction vessels, allows for more effective heating.
Said to be ideal for chemists involved in all aspects of reaction optimisation and process development, the Metz Syn10 enables chemists to quickly discover the optimal conditions for their chemical reactions by simultaneously running up to ten reactions, each with a different temperature, from -30C to +150C and stirring control from 250rpm to 1200rpm.
The new reduced volume reaction kit for the Metz Syn10 enables reaction volumes of between 1-10ml to be effectively studied under inert atmosphere with full refluxing capabilities.
Available from Radleys, the new Huber CC-Pilot controller sets a new benchmark for easy-to-use, flexible control of the world's favourite thermostat bath range
Designed to operate with all popular makes of stirring hotplate, the affordable Heat-On heating blocks from Radleys offer a rapid and safe means of heating round bottom flasks from 10ml to five litres
Technical report on heating block performance and utility concludes that the lower thermal mass of the Heat-On produces significantly faster heat-up times and faster post-synthesis cool down times
For chemistry laboratories looking to phase out oil baths or heating mantles, Radleys has extended its Heat-On heating block range to accommodate round-bottomed flasks up to five litres
Designed to operate with all makes of leading stirring hotplate the affordable Heat-On blocks enable safe and clean heating of one or two round bottomed flasks
