Asia pump experiences global success
Leading chemistry product innovator, Syrris, has experienced outstanding global success with its Asia Pump for applications within flow chemistry. Having sold over 40 continuous flow pumps since its launch in March 2010, Syrris has shipped units to laboratories and academic institutions in numerous countries, including Spain, USA, Japan, Korea, Norway and Hungary.
The Asia pump offers two independent, continuous flow channels for an extremely smooth flow rate, each with an integrated pressure sensor and flow rate range from 1.0 µl to 10 ml/min. Rated 20 bar (300 psi), the pump is only 23 cm wide and uses only glass and PTFE or other fluorinated polymers, making it extremely chemically resistant. Flow rate and volume are easily controlled via the intuitive front panel, or the Asia software, and the incorporation of a PTFE sensor ensures safe operation by automatically stopping flow when pressure exceeds a maximum value.
Designed for use with the Atlas Syringe Pump, the Asia Pressurized Input Store allows four reagents to be stored under an inert gas atmosphere. Providing 1 bar pressure, an ultra-smooth flow can be delivered due to the elimination of input cavitation and gas bubble formation at high flow rates.

About Syrris Limited
Established in 2001, Syrris Limited is one of the fastest growing science SMEs in the UK employing over 30 scientists and engineers at its facility in Royston (near Cambridge). Founders Mark Gilligan and Richard Gray come from a background of developing automation products for chemists at companies such as The Technology Partnership (TTP) and Mettler Toledo.
Syrris develops laboratory automation products for chemists such as the Atlas automated chemistry systems. Atlas can be configured into a wide range of different systems including Lithium and Sodium for round bottom flasks (magnetically and overhead stirred respectively) and Potassium for jacketed vessels. Other Atlas systems, designed for specific applications, including calorimetry, volumetric dosing, gravimetric dosing, pH, etc, are also available.
Syrris also specialise in flow reactors for R&D chemists, including FRX: a low cost flow chemistry system and Africa (Automated Flow Reaction Incubation and Control Apparatus): a modular system for library synthesis, aqueous work-up and reaction optimization that will ultimately reduce the time taken to develop, synthesize, screen and review a chemical entity, thus vastly speeding up the drug discovery process.
