Chemspeed’s MULTIPLANT/ AUTOPLANT PRORES deck modularity allows the user to execute and perform a variety of workflows in a fully or semi-automated fashion.

  • Decrease in cost per experiment up to 90+ %.
  • Increase in productivity by a factor of 10+.
  • Up to 36 experiments per run on an autoplant, up to 6 experiments per run on a multiplant.
  • Independent control of all process parameters in each reactor with PAT like NIR, PSD, calorimetry, pH.
  • Independent and precise temperature and stirring control in each reactor.
  • Up to 8 independent gas, liquefied gas and liquid feeds per reactor.
  • Gravimetric solid and viscous liquid dispensing.
  • 4-Needle Head for volumetric liquid handling and sampling.
  • Feeding and sampling under reaction conditions.
  • Reaction under reflux at ambient or elevated pressure with optional Dean Stark water removal or distillation.
  • pH monitoring and control.
  • Vessel-to-vessel transfer for multistep reactions.
  • Workup with liquid / liquid extraction, drying, solid-phase extraction, filtration or evaporation.
  • Cleaning in place (e.g. automated cleaning, inserts).
  • Dispensed amount, stirrer speed, temperature, pressure, time and other data are stored in a read only log file.
  • Easy access to data with a convenient interface to pull results into Excel or virtually any other software.
  • Interface to DoE.
