Asynt has introduced a second-generation version of its DrySyn OCTO reaction station, adding improved features and a more aesthetically pleasing design whilst maintaining performance and price.
The DrySyn OCTO Mk II is an eight-position reaction station that provides powerful magnetic stirring, heating, inert atmosphere and reflux, all within a compact footprint. It is suitable for for chemists performing syntheses and screening reactions in parallel.
Accommodating individual reaction volumes of up to 6 mL, the instrument has been designed to use standard low-cost reaction tubes to minimise expenditure on consumable items. Up to three reaction stations can be used together on a single standard magnetic hotplate stirrer, enabling users to perform up to 24 simultaneous reactions.
Martyn Fordham, Managing Director of Asynt, said: "Though our DrySyn OCTO users worldwide were delighted with the performance, versatility and value for money the product offered, as an engineer I thought that we could improve the product’s aesthetic design. Our new Mk II design employs improved manufacturing techniques to get rid of plugged drill holes, introduces engraved labels for reaction positions (A-G) and now includes high-quality stainless-steel fittings to improve user maintenance and reconfiguration. All-in-all, a great product is now even better."
