Uniqsis – Flow Reactors
Flow Syn Mutli X™
The FlowSyn Multi-experiment package (FlowSyn Multi-X) uses an enhanced FlowSyn control interface to control either a single or a 4-rack fraction collector thereby enabling a sequence of experiments to be performed without the need for a separate PC. Capable of running unattended, it will perform up to 10 sequential experiment and collect the results as fractions or steady state samples allowing the user to vary the key flow-through parameters (stoichiometry, temperature and residence time) in each case.
Flow Lab Plus™
FlowLab Plus™is a customisable flow chemistry system based around the Uniqsis Binary Pump™ dual channel reagent delivery system. The system can be configured in a variety of ways with different pump and reactor options to run both manual and automated flow chemistry reactions. PUMPS: Start with the BPM (Binary Pump Module) 2-channel reagent delivery module – or two BPMs if you require 4 flow input channels – and then add up to four reactor modules. REACTORS: Coils, ‘chips’ (GSM) and column reactors may be utilised. Choose any combination from the HotCoil™ heated coil reactor, HotChip™ heated ‘chip’ (GSM) reactor, Polar Bear Plus Flow™ (heated/cooled coil reactor), or the Polar Bear Plus GSM™ (heated/cooled ‘chip’) reactor modules. All coil reactor modules can be converted to multi-position column reactors by fitting the HotColumn Adaptor™.
The Uniqsis Hotcoil is a versatile standalone heated reactor module that is compatible with all Uniqsis coil reactors. Temperature range is ambient to 260 C. The unit can be combined with an existing pump to build your own flow reactor system or used as an upgrade to the FlowSyn to increase throughput for scale-up applications.
Hot Chip – Glass static mixer/reactor block heater
The Uniqsis Hotchip is a versatile standalone heated reactor module that is compatible with all Uniqsis glass static mixer/reactor blocks (GSMs). The unit can be combined with an existing pump or the Uniqsis Binary Pump Module to build your own flow reactor system or used as an upgrade to the FlowSyn to increase throughput for scale-up applications.
Polar Bear Plus Glass Static Mixer Chip
Versatile heating and cooling module for Uniqsis glass static mixer/reactor blocks The Polar Bear Plus GSM™ is a state-of-the-art heating and cooling reactor module for flow chemistry applications utilising glass static mixers and reactors. Remarkably, although not much bigger than a shoe box, this compact and portable unit can maintain reactor temperatures anywhere between – 30oC and +150oC!
UV-Vis spectrometer for flow chemistry applications – monitor 5 wavelengths Flow-UV™ is an affordable in-line UV-Vis detector for flow chemistry applications. The high pressure flow cell uses transparent reactor tubing and may be positioned virtually anywhere in the flow path. Dispersion and steady state may be monitored at 5 user selected wavelengths in real time to assist with product collection and quality control.
The Gas Addition Module II (GAM II) is a coil reactor that permits gas to be introduced ‘on-demand’ to reactions performed under flow-through conditions. The gas diffuses through a length of gas-permeable DuPont AF2400 membrane tubing that runs inside the whole length of the outer coil reactor tubing containing the liquid phase. The gas and liquid phases do not come into direct contact with each other. To ensure the most efficient heat transfer, the standard outer reactor tubing is manufactured from 316 stainless steel, although other options such as thick wall PTFE, Hastelloy and PTFE-lined stainless steel are available via special order. (This differs from the GAM 1 where the liquid runs through the inner volume..)
Data Logger Software
The Uniqsis Data Logger Software is an extremely useful accessory that allows reactions to be visualised and monitored graphically in real time. In addition to temperature and pressure traces, fraction collection can be displayed and colored to show extended product collection regions that takes into account dispersion both before and after the main reaction plug. The data can be saved and exported in a standard tsv format for import into eLNBs or Excel etc. It is supplied pre-loaded onto a laptop and requires a serial connection (cables supplied) to your FlowSyn.
