Scaling up exothermic additions in the lab

Are you currently using beakers, dropping funnels and syringes to dose your reactions with a liquid reagent? How long do you stand around tweaking your drip rate? What if you had software that could control those liquid additions, with the benefits of data logging, feedback loops and safety overrides.

Why Crystallise? Introduction to techniques and tips on equipment setup

In this webinar we will discuss the benefits of crystallisation as a tool for product isolation, versus other common techniques.

We will look at the methods of performing crystallisations used by chemists, with examples, including cooling, anti-solvent, pH adjustment and reactive crystallisations. There will be discussion of the Meta Stable Zone (MSZ) and use of phase diagrams.

Finally, we will discuss what equipment is most effective for performing crystallisations along with some tips to improve your crystallisation processes.

Tips and tools to aid your reaction optimisation

Reaction optimisation is a key component across the pharmaceutical development cycle. From early-stage small library production to full scale manufacturing, optimising a reaction for the desired outcome can be a difficult and time-consuming exercise.

In this short webinar we will discuss these parameters and look at some customer examples to highlight the points raised and how these challenges were addressed.

Achieve consistency in process scale up

Consistent Scaling Up

Scaling up chemical reactions can present a number of challenges with respect to efficient mixing, mass transfer, controlling exothermic reactions, heat transfer and reaction kinetics.

In this webinar we discussed some simple guidelines which apply when scaling chemical reactions up or scaling down to predict or reproduce conditions observed in the larger scale manufacturing environment.
