FlowLab and FlowLab Cold - Affordable Entry-Level Flow Chemistry Systems from Uniqsis
FlowLab™ and FlowLab Cold™ are affordable and easy-to-use flow chemistry systems ideal for research, education and training and for those wishing to try flow chemistry without the associated costs of a sophisticated fully automatic system.
The FlowLab™ system comprises two high pressure pumps, a HotCoil™ coil reactor station and FlowLab™ system control. The computer, pumps and HotCoil™ are connected over a LAN using an Ethernet hub. In this way, the system can be controlled remotely by Wi-Fi, allowing the control computer to be conveniently operated outside the fume hood. FlowLab Cold™ includes the Polar Bear Plus Flow™ module which provides cooling down to -40°C without the need for liquid nitrogen or cardice.
The system can be further adapted using HotColumn™ which can accommodate up to six column reactors for catalysts or scavenging applications, or in the case of FlowLab Cold™, fitted with a static reactor/mixer chip holder. In addition, there are options to add a third HPLC pump and a second reactor module such as a HotCoil™ or Polar Bear Plus Flow™ which together provide an operating temperature range of - 40°C to +300°C. An optional inline Flow-UV™ detector can also be included to monitor dispersion and help to determine the optimum point at which to begin and end product collection.
The FlowLab™ application provides control of the system via a step-through interface that is straightforward to use. Programs can be designed and saved reactions run automatically, including priming and washing. The program is monitored on a real time display showing temperatures and pressures. FlowLab™ also automatically detects any modules that have been added to the system.
