Syrris has entered the photochemistry revolution by launching its new Asia Photochemistry Reactor.

FREMONT, CA: Syrris has entered the photochemistry revolution with the launch of its new Asia Photochemistry Reactor. The Asia Photochemistry Reactor, the latest addition to the company's award-winning Asia Flow Chemistry range, allows numerous novel photochemistry applications in flow across a wide range of industries, such as pharmaceuticals, petrochemicals, agrochemicals, fine chemicals, and academic institutions.

The Asia Photochemistry Reactor has been developed to address the market demands, with individual, high-powered LED modules providing a range of wavelengths. These modules can be rapidly and effortlessly interchanged for rapid screening and condition optimization, and they have customizable light intensities to support tune reaction rates and improve production. In addition, a built-in, interlinked cover protects the user from high-intensity light exposure. The system also offers specific and reliable temperature control from —40 to +80 °C, removing the necessity for external cooling sources to maintain optimum performance.

The Asia Photochemistry Reactor, designed with chemists in mind, adheres to the rules and ideals of Syrris flow chemistry products like modular in design, flexible, scalable, and providing ultimate convenience of use. Based on 20 years of experience working with flow chemistry experts worldwide, Syrris has spent a considerable amount of time guaranteeing that the Asia Photochemistry Reactor will surpass user expectations. This extremely user-friendly system enables chemists to manually manage experiments or with intuitive automation software backed by world-class global customer service.

Lee Walmsley, Senior Team Leader in Chemistry at Vernalis Research, who is an early-access user of the new Asia Photochemistry Reactor, commented, "The Asia Photochemistry Reactor is enabling my team to quickly optimize reactions in flow on a small scale, then translate this to any scale to develop new methodologies. We now have the ability to build a library of previously inaccessible or unknown compounds for drug discovery projects. The modular and versatile design has allowed us to switch it to do whatever chemistry we like, while also being efficient – saving time and solvent."
