Simple Heating and Cooling Using Regular Hotplate Stirrers
Syrris improves hot and cold plate compatibility
Royston, UK - Leading chemistry automation product innovator, Syrris has recently launched the new Atlas Hot and Cold Plate for Regular Hotplate Stirrers. Fitting on virtually any magnetic stirrer or stirrer hotplate, the Hot and Cold Plate provides operating temperatures from -40°C to +160°C. Its ultra low profile maintains a strong coupling between the stirrer and stirrer bar, ensuring the highest quality stirring.
The Hot and Cold Plate which can fit on any magnetic stirrer or stirrer hotplate with a diameter of 135mm has a safety shield that protects the user from extreme temperatures. Furthermore, it offers excellent chemical compatibility with anodised aluminium and PTFE coated plate, providing a "wipe clean" surface.
The Hot and Cold Plate can be temperature controlled by a wide range of circulators including Huber, Julabo, Lauda and Haake. A fast and leak-free connection is possible using standard M16 fittings or Atlas quick circulator connectors, which do not require the use of any tools.
Complete user flexibility is provided as the Hot and Cold Plate is compatible with virtually any accessory designed to fit on a regular hotplate stirrer. Syrris offer a range of such accessories including the Atlas Stacking Dry Bath, Triple Dry Bath, Vial Baths and Orbit Parallel Reaction Station for reflux under inert gas.
For further information on the Hot and Cold Plate or any of the other products within the Atlas range including systems for pH monitoring, reaction calorimetry, volumetric and gravimetric dosing, etc. please visit www.syrris.com.
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.
