Crystallization, Polymorph, Salt and Solubility Screening in Unique MTP Blocks with Bottom Glass-Plate for Direct Transfer to XRPD

Swing Crystal

The leading technology in overhead gravimetric dispensing / dosing (patented) combined with a wide range of MTP-format crystallization plates, and our user-friendly software, allow you to standardize and accelerate your crystallization experiments. 

Key Advantages
  • Decrease in cost per sample up to 90+ %.
  • Increase in productivity by a factor of 10+.
  • Up to 192 crystallization experiments per run can be done on MTP based and other formats
  • Wide range of workflows: salt, polymorph, co-crystal, solubility screening (incl. agitation, pH, temperature gradients, filtration, controlled evaporation).
  • Systematically investigate the influence of critical factors such as different solvents (eluotropic series), different concentrations, rate of evaporation, temperature, cooling rate, agitation on crystal structures.
  • Run two different crystallization workflows simultaneously.
  • Highly reliable and precise gravimetric dispensing tools for liquid and solid dispensing. Reproducible results.
  • Different reactor sizes (from < 1 mL to 100 mL in disposable formats and up to 1’000 mL in high-output process development reactors) allow for screening and development / scale-up on the same platform.
  • contamination by electrostatic forces due to moving the powders).
  • Easy access to data with a convenient interface to pull results into Excel or virtually  any other software. 
  • Interface to DoE.
