Parallel Photoreactor Combines Flexibility & High Performance
The LightSyn Illumin8 photoreactor from Asynt offers researchers the flexibility to change quickly and safely between a selection of high-power light emitting diodes (LEDs) operating at wavelengths including UV (365 nm) and blue (450 nm).
The LightSyn Illumin8 allows chemists to run up to 8 photochemical reactions in parallel using low-cost 8 mL tubes. Compact in size, this affordable yet high performance photoreactor offers up to eight interchangeable modules of eight UV or coloured LEDs with safety interlocks to ensure light-tight photochemical reactions. With each high-power LED positioned close to a corresponding reaction tube, the LightSyn Illumin8 efficiently delivers an even photon flux to each position, ensuring the consistency of your photochemical reactions. Integral active cooling also ensures that your reactions do not overheat from the photo irradiation. Simply mounted on a standard magnetic hotplate stirrer, photochemical reactions in your LightSyn Illumin8 can be powerfully agitated and heated up to 80 °C. Designed to replace 'homemade' photoreactor systems which offer inconsistent results and questionable operator safety, the modular LightSyn Illumin8 is simple to set-up, operationally flexible and easy to use with just one single on/off switch.
