Press Release Summary:
Rated to 300 psi, 23 cm wide Asia Syringe Pump utilizes PTFE (and other fluorinated polymers) and glass for chemical resistance and offers 2 independent continuous flow channels, each with integrated pressure sensor and flow rate range from 1.0 Âµl to 10 ml/min. Intuitive front panel, and Asia PC software allow user to control flow rate and volume, while PTFE pressure sensor ensures safe operation by automatically stopping pump in case of over pressure.

New, Ultra-Smooth Flow Chemistry Pump
Syrris Launch Extremely Chemically Resistant Asia Pump
Royston, UK- Leading chemistry automation product innovator, Syrris is delighted to announce the launch of its new Asia Syringe Pump. Designed specifically for flow chemistry, the Asia Pump is rated to 20 bar (300 psi) and highly chemically resistant using PTFE (and other fluorinated polymers) and glass. This compact module offers two independent continuous flow channels, each with an integrated pressure sensor and a flow rate range from 1.0 µl to 10 ml/min.
With the ability to provide an extremely smooth flow rate, the compact pump is only 23 cm wide, making it ideal for in-lab use. Furthermore, the replacement of components such as valves, syringes or pressure sensors is extremely quick and easy, without the need for any tools. Produced to the highest specifications, flow rate and volume can easily be controlled using the intuitive front panel, or via the Asia PC software. The PTFE pressure sensor ensures safe operation by automatically stopping the pumps in the case of over pressure.
Specifically designed for use with the Asia Syringe Pump, the Asia Pressurized Input Store enables four reagents to be stored under an inert gas atmosphere. As a result, an ultra-smooth flow is delivered due to the 1 bar pressure significantly reducing the formation of gas bubbles.

Established in 2001, Syrris Limited is one of the fastest growing science SMEs in the UK employing over 30 scientists and engineers at its facility in Royston (near Cambridge). Founders Mark Gilligan and Richard Gray come from a background of developing automation products for chemists at companies such as The Technology Partnership (TTP) and Mettler Toledo.
Syrris develops laboratory automation products for chemists such as the Atlas automated chemistry systems. Atlas can be configured into a wide range of different systems including Lithium and Sodium for round bottom flasks (magnetically and overhead stirred respectively) and Potassium for jacketed vessels. Other Atlas systems, designed for specific applications, including calorimetry, volumetric dosing, gravimetric dosing, pH, etc, are also available.
Syrris also specialise in flow reactors for R&D chemists, including FRX: a low cost flow chemistry system and Africa (Automated Flow Reaction Incubation and Control Apparatus): a modular system for library synthesis, aqueous work-up and reaction optimization that will ultimately reduce the time taken to develop, synthesize, screen and review a chemical entity, thus vastly speeding up the drug discovery process.
In recognition of its technological achievements, Syrris has been awarded a prestigious UK DTI SMART Exceptional Grant. Syrris has also won a significant DTi MNT (Micro and Nano Technology) award which has been used to establish a new subsidiary called The Dolomite Centre Ltd. This company is focused on design and fabrication of Microfluidic devices for a wide range of applications.
