Syrris launch new innovative tool for laboratory synthesis
Atlas: simple, flexible and cost effective
DDT, Boston, MA – Syrris will be previewing their new atlas™, a multipurpose synthesis tool, for both research and development chemists. Designed to be cost effective and easy to use, the atlas offers a modular automated solution for a range of functions including heating, stirring, cooling and automated reagent addition. For true flexibility, the intelligent atlas base can address a plethora of discovery and process demands by working as a simple or programmable reaction stirrer when used as a stand alone unit or a sophisticated controlled lab reactor when connected to a PC. Using plug and play technology, many atlas units can be connected together and automatically operated in a master-slave fashion or with a PC for advanced control.
atlas allows either magnetic stirring of reactions or a unique clip in overhead stirrer for more viscous solutions, when required. Different base inserts, enable the accommodation of a range of round bottomed flask sizes from 50 ml to 1000 ml or three flasks in parallel (50 ml-250 ml), per atlas unit. Additionally, it can support jacketed vessels from 100 ml to 1 litre, for scale up investigations.
Designed with flexibility in mind, atlas can be connected to most third party equipment, integrating many sensors and analytical tools without the need for additional supports. Quick-click reactor clamps mean flasks and jacketed reaction vessels can be easily clicked into place with no additional clamps or straps. atlas can also allow the automated addition of reagents and will simultaneously monitor reaction temperature using internal or external probes, adjusting flow accordingly.
Front panel controls are intuitive for simple programming of temperature, stirring and reagent addition profiles. With the ability to pre-program experimental parameters, atlas provides the synthetic chemist with greater control and improved walk away time. Such modularity enables a smooth transition to greater throughout and experimental complexity when required.
