Royston, UK (17 June 2011) – Leading chemistry automation product innovator, Syrris has developed a series of educational videos on its Atlas automated chemistry systems. Available to view at www.syrris.com/videos, the extensive video portfolio includes: Atlas Overview, Atlas jacketed vessels, Atlas calorimeter and Atlas software. With the ability to perform reactions in jacketed reactors, round bottomed flasks, pressure reactors or vials, the system is ideal for use in applications such as reaction calorimetry, volumetric dosing, gravimetric dosing, and pH monitoring.
As a modular laboratory product designed specifically for research and development chemists, Atlas is a cost-effective and easy-to-use system. It offers an automated solution for a range of functions including heating, stirring, cooling and automated reagent addition. Providing true flexibility, the intelligent Atlas base can operate as a stand-alone unit, where it automatically logs all set-points and sensor data. For more sophisticated reaction control with real-time graphs, the Atlas system can be controlled by the unique Atlas software.

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). With offices in the US, Japan, India and Brazil plus over 30 distributors worldwide, Syrris is world renown for excellence in chemical reactor systems.
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 for controlling round bottom flasks (magnetically and overhead stirred respectively) and jacketed reactors. Atlas systems are designed for applications including reaction calorimetry, volumetric dosing, gravimetric dosing, pH, etc.
Syrris also specialize in flow reactors for R&D chemists, including Asia and Africa, modular systems for chemical synthesis, aqueous work-up and reaction optimization. These systems offer faster, cleaner and safer reactions that will ultimately reduce the time taken to develop, synthesize, and review a chemical entity.
In recognition of its technological achievements, Syrris has been awarded a prestigious UK DTI SMART Exceptional Grant and was awarded the “Eastern Region’s UKTI Best Established Exporter” and the “Most Outstanding Export Achievement” at the Global Opportunity Conference on International Trade. Syrris has also won a significant DTi MNT (Micro and Nano Technology) award which has been used to establish a subsidiary called The Dolomite Centre Ltd. This company is focused on design and fabrication of Microfluidic devices for a wide range of applications.
