Microsaic showcases Microsaic 3500 MiD® at the 3rd Symposium on Continuous Flow Reactor Technology.

Microsaic Systems has showcased its first product, the Microsaic 3500 MiD®, the world’s smallest fully integrated MS system, at the 3rd Symposium on Continuous Flow Reactor Technology for Industrial Applications held on Lake Como, Italy (2-4 October).

Visitors to Microsaic’s stand got the opportunity to see the 3500 MiD® and to learn about the value of on-line reaction monitoring, made possible for the first time by virtue of its compact size and unique chip-based format.

The symposium follows orders for Microsaic’s award winning ‘molecular ion detector’ from two blue chip customers, one a world-leading research institution, the other a global pharmaceutical giant.

The 3500 MiD is an integrated MS system the size of a standard desktop computer. It is smaller, lighter, quieter, more energy efficient, cheaper to run and requires a fraction of the infrastructure of conventional MS systems.

The system is portable with modular plug and play components for maximum application flexibility.

Historically, MS has only been used for off-line analysis but the 3500 MiD is so compact it can be used for on-line reaction monitoring in a fume-hood.

Monitoring of batch reactions in real time provides a chemist with instant reaction data which can be acted upon to adjust reaction conditions to ensure success, maximize yield, save material and reduce reaction time.

The 3500 MiD is also ideal for flow chemistry systems where MS data can be used for rapid reaction optimization.

The 3500 MiD is designed to readily integrate with existing HPLC equipment with no extra footprint, extending the capability of an HPLC system with significant cost savings compared to a conventional MS system.

Alan Finlay, Chief Executive of Microsaic Systems plc, said: “The symposium was a great success and offered us an excellent opportunity to demonstrate the application of the 3500 MiD® for on-line reaction monitoring. We were greatly encouraged by the positive feedback we received from visitors to our stand and the level of interest shown in our product throughout the symposium. The recent orders received for our 3500 MiD® detectors from blue-chip partners is indicative of the growing interest in our product from industry and academia. Validating the potential of this product is a key objective for Microsaic and we are pleased with the progress we have made this year.”
