ISYNTH: Automated Library Synthesis in Disposable Glass Vials / Reactors and / or Reusable Double-Jacket Reactors and / or Microwave Reactors

The leading technology in overhead gravimetric dispensing / dosing (patented) combined with our disposable or reusable or microwave reactors, and our user-friendly software, allow you to standardize and accelerate your parallel synthesis workflows.

Example Customer testimonial

The only fully integrated and automated workstation for reaction preparation, synthesis (ambient pressure, pressure up to 100bar), work up, purification, analysis, and output to storage vials / plates.

The only workstation for inert gas (e.g. BuLi) and low-temperature (-70 °C) chemistry.

… the only true liquid phase and solid phase synthesis workstation …

Pressure reactor block

Parallel reactor block and reactor array:

  • Closure of synthesis reactors by a ceramic or stainless steel valve system (reactor block) allowing operation under high quality vacuum down to 10 mbar (for online evaporation) or inert atmosphere (no need for septa).
  • Efficient yet gentle vortex mixing (up to 1’400 rpm), even while accessing the reactor.
  • Inert atmosphere for sensitive reagents/ inert reaction conditions/ low-temperature chemistry:
    • Inertization of the synthesis reactors (vacuum / inert gas cycles).
    • Inertization of the entire workstations (self-contained hood).
  • Optional pseudomechanical stirring for viscous liquids.
  • Classical heating and / or microwave conditions.
  • Shakable / heatable / crimp and screw rack for e.g. disposable glass array reactors.
