Most chemical reactions require heating, and typically can take several hours to complete. This is a major bottleneck to chemical synthesis. However, it doesn’t have to be like this. The Biotage Initiator+ microwave system allows reactions to be completed in a fraction of the time – so an average reaction that usually takes hours is over in minutes. How does it do this? By super-heating the reaction under pressure to greater than the solvent boiling point, driving reactions to completion in record time. Your chemistry, faster.
Press the large touch-screen and heat your organic reagents to 300 °C in just a few seconds. Biotage® Initiator+ does just that, and adds intelligent features that make innovation fast, reliable and safe.
The Initiator+ can be upgraded from a single-sample manual format to an automated 8- or 60-position system. The modular design allows a user to add on different automated sample processors dependent on throughput requirements, allowing sequential reactions to be programmed and performed in quick succession.
The 8-position sample bed gives the user a compact automation solution to start scale-up process and library build-up. The 8-position system is useful in a multi-user environment or for queuing multiple reactions. Flexible operation enables the use of both large and small vials in combination at any time and in any order without manual intervention.
The 60-position sample bed supports the production of focused libraries, multi-user environments and scale-out, and use of both large and small vials in any order without manual intervention.
In the modern laboratory speed is everything, and the Initiator+ helps you deliver.
