Asynt Announces new DrySyn™ Parallel Synthesizer
Product News Feb 26, 2010
Asynt’s new DrySyn™ Parallel Synthesizer allows the chemist to heat and stir up to 12 small-scale reactions in parallel using any standard hotplate stirrer.
According to Company, at around £200 this provides a low cost solution for chemists wishing to conduct simple synthetic reactions with temperature control and magnetic stirring, but without the complications of reflux or inerting. It can be used for producing small, focused libraries of compounds.
The DrySyn Parallel Synthesizer accommodates a range of standard reaction tubes and vials, of different diameters. It can also be upgraded to a parallel reaction station using standard round-bottom flasks, by using the appropriate DrySyn MULTI inserts. In this configuration, facilities like reflux and gas control can be added, it also can be upgraded further with directly driven stirring with the Asynt Vortex stirrer system.
DrySyn systems can heat reactions to over 300°C and are available for single or multiple reaction vessels with volumes from 1ml to 5000ml. Compatible with any standard hotplate stirrer, they combine a small footprint with excellent reaction visibility.
According to Asynt Managing Director Martyn Fordham, over 25,000 DrySyn laboratory heating and cooling blocks have now been supplied worldwide.
