Uniqsis announces HotChip™ – a new standalone heater module that provides precise temperature control of flow chemistry glass static mixer (GSM) chip reactors.
The Uniqsis range of chemically-resistant borosilicate glass chip reactor blocks can be used as static mixers to ensure effective mixing before a coil reactor or to perform fast exothermic experiments such as nitration’s or bromination’s where reaction times are often less than 1 minute.
Available in sizes from 270µl to 20 ml – GSM chips from Uniqsis can be used to perform reactions from -80°C to over 225°C. GSM chips up to 2 ml can be operated up to 40-bar and are available in 2-channel or 3-channel configuration. Larger GSM chips of 10ml and 20 ml have a premixing channel followed by a residence domain and can operate up to 10-bar.
Incorporating a clear, bright LED display, HotChip™ is very easy to use as a standalone module. Simply ‘push-to-set’ and ‘push-to-start’ using the rotary controller. Alternatively, HotChip™ can be remotely controlled using a FlowSyn flow reactor system, a Binary Pump Module™ or using the powerful Uniqsis FlowControl™ system control software.
The HotChip™ insulated cover features a cut-out that allows it to be conveniently removed and refitted without the need to disconnect the fluidic connections. An enhanced cool-down option is available which utilises the low pressure compressed supply available in most laboratory fume hoods to accelerate cooling.
Since 2007, Uniqsis has specialised in the design and supply of mesoscale continuous flow chemistry systems for a wide range of applications in chemical and pharmaceutical research. The company’s aim is to make flow chemistry easily accessible to both novices and experienced users.
