Experimental work is done more effectively and faster at the National Institute of Chemistry

"It makes our life easier." says Dr Jhansi Mamilla
BIA case study (18)

The situation

Many single magnetic stirrers, problems with doing parallels, multiple samples and temperature regulations, and heating was only from the bottom. It was very difficult to control and obtain parameters and reproducibility.

The objective

Experimental work is done more effective and faster, being able to prepare multiple samples at once, running the reactions overnight (extractions, isolations, dissolutions, fractionations), to have safer and reliable system.

The results

The system was installed in November 2016. The outcome is the same as objective (safer, reliable system, faster heating and stirring) good temperature and stirrer control. They can run multiple samples overnight, have parallel reactions and doing unattended chemistry. The system is very convenient and easy to use.

They can now use now the system for all sort of applications:

Extraction of polyphenols, polysaccharides from marine biomass, dissolution of chitin using green solvents and N- deacetylation of chitin, fractionation of lignocellulosic biomass, protein and minerals isolation from shrimp shells.

"Bojana Bradić “I am getting my results faster after using 6 reactors at once. I can do parallel reaction under same conditions.” Dr Jhansi Mamilla: “Carousel 6 Plus saves time as we can run parallel reactions. It makes our life easier. We can run in parallel using different solvents to optimize the parameters (conditions)."
