Syrris Introduce Reagent Injection and Product Collection Modules for AFRICA System
Product News Dec 22, 2006
Flow chemistry innovators, Syrris have announced the introduction of two modules for their AFRICA (Automated Flow Reaction Incubation and Control Apparatus) system.
The reagent injection and product collection modules are designed to allow full automated synthesis, improving throughput and extending walk-away time.
Suited to the production of synthetic libraries, or use for reagent screening, reaction optimisation, kinetic studies, degradation studies, and logD screening, these modules can expand AFRICA’s application areas.
AFRICA is designed as an automated flow system for reaction optimisation in both medicinal and process chemistry. By allowing a series of controlled reactions to be carried out under laminar flow, AFRICA can improve reaction time, experimental optimisation, and reproducibility.
With the introduction of the reagent injection module, hundreds of compounds, separated from each other by solvent, can be injected into the flow reactor under pressure.
The product collection module and integrated fraction collector can allow individual reactions to be automatically collected in tubes or vials and unwanted solvent to be diverted to waste.
With the ability to choose point of collection i.e. the heart of the reaction for maximum concentration or purity, or the diffusion/dispersion areas for maximum recovery, these modules can aid experimental efficiency and minimise waste or loss of product.
The reagent injection and product collection modules are the most recent additions to the Syrris portfolio of microreactor products and vastly improve the operational efficiency and expand the number of flow applications of AFRICA.
