SiliCycle MiniBlock XT for Parallel Synthesis

Biosafety Level 1 - High-Throughput


The MiniBlock XT is a multifunctional platform for medium to high throughput parallel synthesis (12-96). It requires minimal fume hood space, has excellent temperature control and refluxing capabilities, robust mixing of difficult solutions and easy setup and cleanup. Reactions can be performed under inert or non-inert atmosphere, and in solution or solid supported phase. The SiliCycle patented valve mechanism enables simultaneous bottom drainage or all reaction vessels, aided by the use of vacuum or air pressure. Reaction products can then be transferred into collection vessels or SPE tubes for purification.
