Syrris, a leading chemistry automation product innovator, has introduced the Atlas Six Way Node Socket for its Atlas, high performance, low cost and easy-to-use modular synthesis system. The Atlas Six Way Node Socket facilitates rapid interconnection, control and logging of multiple reaction parameters, making the system even more versatile, quicker to set up and ideal for process optimisation.
Simply plugging into the node port of the intelligent Atlas Base Unit, the new Six Way Node Socket can connect up to six sensor nodes via Node Extensions to the Base Unit. This enables the measurement by various available sensor nodes of multiple parameters, such as temperature, pH and temperature, and turbidity, which can all be displayed, read and controlled directly from the Base Unit. To prevent any confusion, each of the six sensor nodes can be individually named.
All data can be quickly and easily downloaded from the Base Unit to a USB stick in .csv format. For easy graphical analysis of the log files, data can then be imported and viewed in Atlas Reporting Software. Any graph generated can be customized and exported as an image, PDF or .csv file with this innovative, wizard style software.
Established in 2001, Syrris Limited is one of the fastest growing science SMEs in the UK employing over 30 scientists and engineers at its facility in Royston (near Cambridge). Founders Mark Gilligan and Richard Gray come from a background of developing automation products for chemists at companies such as The Technology Partnership (TTP) and Mettler Toledo.
Syrris develops laboratory automation products for chemists such as the Atlas automated chemistry systems. Atlas can be configured into a wide range of different systems including Lithium and Sodium for round bottom flasks (magnetically and overhead stirred respectively) and Potassium for jacketed vessels. Other Atlas systems, designed for specific applications, including calorimetry, volumetric dosing, gravimetric dosing, pH, etc, are also available.
Syrris also specialise in flow reactors for R&D chemists, including FRX: a low cost flow chemistry system and Africa (Automated Flow Reaction Incubation and Control Apparatus): a modular system for library synthesis, aqueous work-up and reaction optimization that will ultimately reduce the time taken to develop, synthesize, screen and review a chemical entity, thus vastly speeding up the drug discovery process.
In recognition of its technological achievements, Syrris has been awarded a prestigious UK DTI SMART Exceptional Grant. Syrris has also won a significant DTi MNT (Micro and Nano Technology) award which has been used to establish a new subsidiary called The Dolomite Centre Ltd. This company is focused on design and fabrication of Microfluidic devices for a wide range of applications.
