Reaction Station Improves Productivity in a Busy R&D lab

Jun 04 2015 Read 922 Times

As the pace of innovation increases, many companies are switching from the traditional process of ‘one-at-a-time’ analogue synthesis, which is time consuming and highly labour intensive, to more efficient methods.

This was the case in the small, space-limited R&D laboratory at the School of Pharmaceutical Science, Sun Yat-Sen University where they wanted to improve the productivity of experiments, consistency and safety. Using their existing setup of a simple water condenser, heated magnetic stirrer and glass flask for drug synthesis / combination reactions they experienced long reaction times and with limited space, project progress was always slow.

After testing Radleys Carousel 12 Plus Reaction Station which offers twelve parallel reactions from 1 to 20ml scale, with uniform heating or cooling of each reaction tube, the laboratory purchased two units. The Laboratory Supervisor said: “The Carousel 12 is very convenient for us to use and improves our efficiency.  The lack of space is no longer a problem as 12 experiments can be run simultaneously owing to the Carousel 12’s small benchtop footprint.”

Carousel 12 Plus Reaction System features: accepts up to 12 glass tubes with a reaction volume from 1ml to 20ml; powerful, even stirring - fits on to a Carousel stirring hotplate; rapid heating to 220?C and cooling to -78?C; quick to set-up and easy to use; easy viewing of tube contents during experiments; removable water-cooled reflux head; perform reactions under an inert atmosphere; fluoropolymer coating for chemical resistance and easy cleaning; PTFE caps feature a ‘quick-thread’ for fast attachment to glass tubes; removable reflux head allows reaction tubes to be transferred between heated base, cooled base or stand.
