Synthesize, optimize, and characterize products and processes—right on time. The OptiMax thermostat available from Mettler Toledo enables users to simplify their syntheses.
Speed Up the Workflow
OptiMax simplifies organic chemistry by avoiding the need for dangerous and cumbersome handling of ice and oil baths.
Reproducible and Precise Synthesis
A strong solid-state thermostat offers the essential cooling and heating power to regulate the temperature of users’ synthesis precisely and accurately.
Controlled by the Tip of the Finger
An intuitive touch screen enables users to alter reaction parameters in a few seconds and to record all relevant parameters.

Precision Heating and Cooling
OptiMax avoids the need for cumbersome ice baths, oil baths, and bulky cryostats. The solid-state cooling technology and the electrical heating guarantee accurate temperature control from −40 °C to −180 °C, without using a cryostat.
OptiMax experiments are regulated using an intuitive touchscreen. By simply touching the button, experimental parameters can be quickly tuned, and a series of successive tasks can be programmed and left to run safely unsupervised.
It is possible to choose the experimental configuration from an extensive variety of accessories and reactors, to be appropriate to the type of research. Configuration changes can be made quick and supported by auto-recognition of devices and probes.
Reliable Information and Data Management
All events and process data are securely stored and automatically recorded. Since there is no loss of data, experiments are reproducible and traceable. The data can be assessed in Excel® or iControl for interpretation or further processing.
Reaction Calorimeter Option
Calorimetric data can be generated under both non-isothermal and isothermal conditions through the optional reaction calorimeter upgrade.
