Applications

This product is suitable for the following applications.

At a glance

Staying true to Syrris’s user-focused flow chemistry product design, Asia Photochemistry System enables the quick and easy interchange of single, high powered LED modules for rapid screening and scale up of reactions to optimize conditions. The ability to increase the light intensity (up to 108W)* reduces reaction times and increases production rates.

Transform your Asia Heater or Asia Cryo Controller for precise and accurate temperature control, from -40°C to +80°C, with no external cooling sources required. The advanced technology allows vessels from 50ml.

*dependant on wavelength

  • Accurate temperature control, from -40°C to +80°C
  • Tune your light intensity (up to 108W)*
  • Interchangeable modules can be changed in seconds

Interchangeable LED Modules

Monochromatic, high powered LED modules are available in a wide range of wavelengths for precise control of photochemistry applications.

House up to 8 interchangeable single wavelength modules in one reactor. Run reactions on multiple wavelengths to access novel chemistries, or add up to 8 light sources of the same value for rapid screening and scale-up to optimize reactions.

Reaction throughputs of mg’s to 10’s g/hour.

No external cooling required

Maintain optimum performance even at maximum power without the need for external cooling, resulting in longer lifetimes of your LED modules and efficient temperature control of your reactions.

Temperatures as low as -40oC and optimum performance even when heated to +80oC due to the low heat load of LED modules, which requires much less cooling to maintain control of the reaction temperature.

Greater selectivity and light intensity

The unique design of the Asia Photochemistry Reactor enables users to select from a wide range of wavelengths and gradually scale-up reactions, providing greater selectivity for reaction optimization.

Tune your light intensity (up to 108W)* to reduce reaction times and increase production rates. No additional light sources are required to increase throughput.

In-built safety

The Asia Photochemistry Reactor is designed to be as safe as possible. Interlocked fittings and a light-proof design means zero exposure to high intensity light.

The light source is linked to the power supply; any component disconnections trigger the light source to shut down immediately, preventing exposure to the user. Provides optimum safety for use within standard fumehoods.

What we say

The design is unique. The LED modules are housed so they can be quickly and easily changed, combined for multiple wavelengths, and allow 8 x of the same LED module for scaling. Like all things in the Asia range, this provides complete flexibility.
