Unattended Polyolefin (Single Site, Ziegler-Natta) Catalyst Synthesis and Screening


The leading technology in overhead gravimetric dispensing / dosing (patented) combined with our disposable reactors, and our user-friendly software, allow you to accelerate, standardize and digitalize your single-site catalyst synthesis & screening for polyolefins and rubbers.

Key advantages

• Decrease in cost per experiment up to 90+ %.
• Increase in productivity by a factor of 10+.
• Integration with / in MBraun glove-box.
• Full automation of synthesis workflows including reagent preparation (liquids and solids), multistep synthesis, work-up, purification, analysis and product transfer to storage.
• Fully automated polymerization screening with flexible 96-well MTP pressure block, shakable /
heatable / coolable, and sampling / dilution racks.
• Easy-to-use disposable glass reactors / vials.
• Gravimetric solid and viscous liquid dispensing.
• 4-Needle Head for volumetric liquid handling and sampling.
• Feeding and sampling under reaction conditions.
• Dispensed amount, stirrer speed, temperature, pressure, time..., and other data are stored in a read only log file.
• Easy access to data with a convenient interface to pull results into Excel or virtually any other software.
• Interface to DoE.
