Royston, UK (26th July 2011) – Leading chemistry automation product innovator, Syrris offers the Asia range of flow chemistry systems for performing a wide variety of chemical reactions. The portfolio includes the Asia 110 system, ideal for customers who demand high quality but have limited budgets. The Asia 110 is an excellent value, easy to use system that is ideal for beginners in solution phase flow chemistry.
This very compact system combines the high performance of an Asia Pump, an Asia Chip Climate Controller, a glass microreactor ("chip") and an Asia Pressure Controller. The Asia Pump is extremely chemically resistant and designed specifically for flow chemistry. It has two continuous pumps for delivering smooth flow from 1µL/min to 10mL/min. The pump has an integrated Pressure Sensor which allows it to automatically stop in the case of a blockages or leak.
The Asia 110 system includes one or many glass microreactors that offer excellent mixing, easy visualisation of the reaction and maximum chemical resistance. The Asia Chip Climate Controller enables the microreactors to be heated from -15 to +150 ºC without the need for a circulator or a cold water supply. The Asia Pressure controller enables ultra fast reaction rates; the pressure controller automatically regulates a laboratory gas supply to pressurize the reaction up to 20 bar.
The Asia modular flow chemistry systems
The Asia 110 System can be upgraded to include automated collection, use of solid phase reagents, temperatures up to 250 ºC, kg synthesis, analysis integration, flow liquid-liquid extraction and full software control.

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 specialise 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.
