Syrris' Innovative Jacketed Reactor Platform Proves an International Success

Published: Sep 23, 2011

Royston, UK (23rd September 2011) – Syrris, a leader in novel chemistry reactor systems has received worldwide success with its new Globe jacketed reactor platform. Designed by chemists for ultimate ease-of-use, the advanced technology of this chemical reactor allows vessels from 50 mL to 5 L to be used with a common clamp, lid, circulator and stand. The Globe system combines automatic stirrer alignment with the widest range of temperatures (-90 to +250 ºC) and pressures (vacuum to 3 bar). Vessels can easily be changed in seconds, making this a truly flexible platform, which can be easily upgraded to a fully-automated system.

Having received multiple orders throughout Europe, Asia, North and South America only a few months after its launch, Mike Hawes, Chief Executive of Syrris commented “We have had wonderful feedback from customers worldwide. The combination of ease of use, high quality and excellent value is proving very popular”.

Globe is designed with a default temperature range of -40 to +200 ºC, which is further extendable via the addition of temperature upgrade kits. In-reactor temperature probes enable highly accurate control throughout, while the Globe range is fully compatible with almost all circulators. The regular Globe system is suited to atmospheric pressure or vacuum processes as low as 50 mbar, while the Globe 3 bar system is ideally suited for high pressure reactions or high vacuum. The Globe jacketed reactor systems can be easily upgraded using the Globe Reactor Master for full automation and data logging, or the Syringe Pump for automated reagent dosing. Additionally, the Globe Master PC software converts the system into a fully controllable laboratory reactor. For further details, please visit

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). 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.
