A new heater to give precise temperature control of flow chemistry glass static mixer (GSM) chip reactors has been launched by Uniqsis.
HotChip is said to be easy to use as a standalone unit, and can also be controlled with a FlowSyn flow reactor system, binary pump module, or the company’s FlowControl software
Its range of borosilicate glass chip reactor blocks can be used as static mixers before a coil reactor, or for fast exothermic experiments such as nitration or bromination where reaction times may be measured in seconds.
Uniqsis’s GSM chips are available in sizes from 270ul to 20ml and can perform reactions from -80C to +225C.
Chips up to 2ml can be operated up to 40 bar and are available in two- or three-channel configuration.
Larger 10ml and 20ml chips have a premixing channel followed by a residence domain and operate at up to 10 bar.
