Flow Reactors Improve Process Reproducibility, Scalability & Yields
The FlowSyn™ flow reactor system from Uniqsis Ltd. handles everything from homogeneous single reactions to complex, multi-reagent reactions and is available with the widest range of reactor models (2–60 mL) in a variety of inert materials.

Reactions using strong acids and powerful organometallic bases are routinely possible. A unique 2- or 3-channel borosilicate glass mixer chip reactor enables high throughput applications, fast mixing dependent reactions, and even highly exothermic reactions requiring temperature control. A range of optional gas addition, microwave, low temperature, and binary pump (4-channel) modules further enhance the versatility of the system.
Within the FlowSyn system, two high pressure pumps deliver reagents, via a mixer, into electrically heated flow reactors. Back pressure regulators pressurise the system, allowing solvents to be superheated to a maximum of 260 °C. Reaction outputs from the system can be fractionated or optimised at steady state, after which the system flushes itself for the next experiment. The entire process is controlled by the integrated FlowSyn interface.

Extended Length Pipette Tips Improve Labware Access
INTEGRA has introduced a new extended-length GripTip pipette tip available in non-sterile, sterile, filter, and GREEN CHOICE configurations.

GripTip is designed to work with single, eight, twelve, and sixteen channel VIAFLO electronic pipettes, and VOYAGER eight and twelve channel adjustable-spacing electronic pipettes. The extended length design enables easy access into labware such as 1.5 mL tubes and deep-well blocks. GripTip also reduces PCR cross-contamination as the elongated tip prevents the pipette shaft from contacting the wall of the PCR tubes.

Offering an extended volume range, 0.5–12.5 µL, the LONG GripTip enables users to repeat-dispense 1 µL twelve times while still allowing for a 0.5 µL last-dispense to improve accuracy and precision.

Ultra-Low Temperature High-Security Freezers
BINDER UF V ultra-low temperature freezers with ULTRA.GUARD™ technology produce secure, long-term sample storage at temperatures to –86 °C. UF V freezers come with the DATA.SECURE™ data logger, a highly flexible recording system. A USB connection enables easy data transmission and requires no extra software. An integrated temperature sensor also provides redundant monitoring independent of the freezer controller. Multiple outputs are available and seamlessly integrate into existing alarm systems.

Optional features such as a backup emergency CO2 refrigeration system with alarm notifications add an extra level of security. In addition, GUARD.CONTROL’s optional RFID monitoring system controls access to the freezer contents, unlocking the door only for authorized personnel and automatically logging all freezer traffic. For greatly reduced heat emissions and even quieter operation, a water-cooled option is available.
BINDER freezers accommodate as many as 52,800 samples in inner chambers made of high-quality stainless steel, are easy to move by one person, and have easy-cleaning front-access filters. Download an ULTRA.GUARD information package by visiting
