Carousel 6 improves productivity in Sussex University chemistry lab
Contacts: Dr John Spencer
Organisation: University of Sussex
Department: The Spencer Group
Country: United Kingdom
Product: Carousel 6 Reaction Station
Case Study No: CS1007
Before investing in the Carousel 6, processes were slow and protracted due to a lack of available chemistry capacity. Laborious ‘analogue’ bashing was creating frustrating bottlenecks in the drug discovery program.
Optimise parallel synthesis and library generation in a drug discovery laboratory
- Now able to quickly and efficiently ‘tweak’ interesting molecules to optimise their properties in the drug discovery process.
- Also used for ’parallel teaching’ where three students can share a device and a fumehood, with space for 2 reactions each.
We chose the Carousel 6 because it does many things at once… it has helped us greatly in our day-to-day work. In fact, synthetic outputs have probably quadrupled!Dr John Spencer, University of Sussex
