Country: China

Product: Tornado

Case Study No: CS1010


The group is working in drug discovery – research of enzyme-catalyzed synthesis of polyunsaturated fatty acid glycerides. Previously used a water bath and mechanical agitation to deal with a sample. Could only manage one sample at a time.


Increased work efficiency


Can now process samples under vacuum and simultaneously carry out several reactions.

The Tornado system has greatly increased our work efficiency, AND the Carousel 6 part of the system also offers parallel magnetic stirring as well.Professor Chen Biqiang, Beijing Institute of Chemical Technology
