Employing a user friendly interface, the intuitive Labtrix® S1 software guides the user through the steps required to set-up automated flow reactions. With input parameters including reaction time, temperature and stoichiometry (equivalents), the software automatically calculates the flow rates and reactant volumes required based on a series of pre-loaded reactor types and supplied reactant concentrations. Conditional programming allows the user to define the type of sample collected i.e. based on time, temperature reached, total volume or dispensed volume and automatically calculates the run time required.
The Labtrix® S1 software is designed to enable the rapid optimisation of conditions such as reactant stoichiometry, reaction time and temperature, an example of which can be found in;
Translation of Microwave Methodology to Continuous Flow for the Efficient Synthesis of Diaryl Ethers via a Base-mediated SNAr Reaction’. Beilstein J. Org. Chem., 2011 (in press).
As the system is capable of producing multiple samples in a short period of time, automatic sample collection allows the system to be operated unattended, 24/7.
Automatic parameter logging enables archiving of the reaction conditions employed, along with a real time graphical view.
Upon request, customized reactors can be produced to meet the needs of a special user.
