“Vapourtec’s ability to make design and engineering innovations in terms of complementary add-ons and expansion modules have enabled the R-Series to stay ahead of the game,” added Geoff. 

Vapourtec’s founder and MD Duncan Guthrie commented: “The R-Series  system was launched in 2006 with the aim of making flow chemistry, a fast growing alternative to batch chemistry, more flexible, precise and ultimately productive. 

“It has impacted positively on flow chemistry research in a wide range of industries and fields covering petrochemicals, flavourings, pharmaceuticals, generic drug manufacture, polymers and organic electronics. 

“Already cited as pivotal within 110 published research papers, the R-Series is one of two flow chemistry systems designed and manufactured by Vapourtec with the E-Series launched in 2013. 

“We are delighted that Geoff has helped us reach the 200 landmark as it demonstrates the loyalty and trust that the R-Series has elicited within chemistry research,” added Duncan.
