New Company Focuses on Flow Chemistry

21-May-2007

Two Cambridge-based science companies have joined forces to develop a new concept in flow chemistry aimed at bringing this promising synthesis technique within the reach of every laboratory. Uniqsis was formed in January 2007 and is an alliance between Asynt, specialist supplier of organic synthesis apparatus, and Grant Instruments (Cambridge) Ltd., scientific equipment manufacturer.

CEO Martyn Fordham said "Continuous flow synthesis offers synthetic and process chemists a wide range of benefits, however some current commercial systems are very expensive. Other approaches involve coupling up an assortment of different components, and pose significant system control and monitoring issues. Uniqsis has been formed to develop and manufacture a solution that will offer the required choice of functionality in an integrated, rational system, and at a sensible price. Our aim is to make this exciting technique accessible to every organic synthesis laboratory. We are well along the development process and intend to introduce our first product towards the end of the year."
