Royston, UK (21 February 2011) – Leading chemistry automation product innovator, Syrris will launch its new Asia range of modular flow chemistry systems in America at Scientific Update OPRD, Florida from 28th February – 2nd March 2011. The European launch will subsequently occur at the 1st International Conference of the Flow Chemistry Society in Munich, Germany, from 28 – 29 March 2011. As the highest performance, most flexible and easiest to use system to date, the Asia portfolio is scalable and modular, making it ideal for any flow chemistry requirements.

Maxime Drobot, Asia Product Manager, will be presenting at the Scientific Update ORPD short course, ‘Are you going with the flow’ on the 1st March. This course will act as an introduction to flow chemistry with examples of various reactions that have been run under continuous flow conditions.

The new Asia systems incorporate maximum chemical resistance with wide temperature (-15 to 250 °C) and pressure (0-20 bar) ranges. With fast reaction times and microgram to kilogram scalability, its unique design enables manual or automated operation with optional PC control. The Asia range consists of three different series, each with three pre-configured systems providing varying levels of functionality. The Asia 1-series are a manually operated, cost-effective choice. The Asia 2-series systems can automatically perform one experiment at a time, with automated parameters such as reaction temperature, pressure and collection timings. Fully-automated for process optimisation, the Asia 3-series is ideal for performing synthesis, work-up and analysis of hundreds of experiments.
