In situ reaction monitoring is an essential step in the chemical synthesis process. Intended for laboratories and pilot plants, the MB-Rx Reaction Monitor provides chemists with direct access to real-time experiment data via a rugged insertion probe and an intuitive software interface.
This robust analytical solution provides real-time insight into reaction monitoring for various processes in chemical and biotechnology applications. The MB-Rx enables R&D and process development teams to look into the progress of chemical reactions as they happen. Chemical reaction in a flow or batch reactor requires a fast and efficient method to measure the consumption of reactants as well as the formation of products and by-products in order to optimize an industrial process in the shortest time possible.
With its reduced footprint, the MB-Rx can be used inside crowded fumehoods, providing convenient access to reactors. Its optics are non-hygroscopic, and do not require desiccant cartridges. For additional ease of use, the MB-Rx operates with a room-temperature detector, so that users do not have to worry about nitrogen supply for cryogenically cooled detectors or regular refurbishment constraints associated with Stirling cooled detectors. All key spectral and chemical properties are trended in real time, and the ergonomic software interface allows for rapid set-up of new experiment templates.
The aluminium casting of the MB-Rx provides the level of protection required for intensive use in an industrial environment. It also features permanently aligned optics and a light source that has an average lifespan of 10 years, which means that the instrument is virtually maintenance-free.
For additional serenity, users can rely on the built-in health monitoring checks that run continuously while the MB-Rx is in operation, because we believe that chemists should focus their attention on the reaction itself, rather than the measurement interface.
