St Neots, Cambridgeshire, United Kingdom, 2012/02/23 - Syrris, a world leader in flow product innovation, is enjoying outstanding success with sales of Asia, its revolutionary range of advanced flow chemistry products - Syrris.com.
Sales of the modular Asia flow product have been hailed a triumph for the Company, as ever-increasing numbers of scientists around the world discover the benefits the system offers to the laboratory.
Designed by chemists, for chemists, the innovative Asia system offers a variety of modules, including the most sophisticated flow chemistry pump available, the Asia Syringe Pump. Catherine Carter, a PhD student working in Professor Steve Ley’s world-leading flow chemistry research group at the University of Cambridge, said: “The pressurised inlet for the pumps is extremely useful for these reactions – pumping organometallic compounds can be problematic in flow chemistry – giving us the confidence to try things that we would not previously have attempted and helping to reduce failure rates.”
Asia is a family of different modules that can be configured into a wide range of different systems. Its proprietary technology allows automated experiments with or without a PC, and the modular design makes it suitable for everything from a manually operated starter system to fully automated reaction optimization with integrated analysis. Mike Hawes, CEO of Syrris, commented: “Asia is designed to offer chemists the widest variety of chemical reaction space, combined with ultimate ease of use. Having launched the Asia product range less than a year ago and achieved sales in excess of 300 modules, the new Asia flow chemistry system has been a fantastic success for Syrris.”
