DigiCAT 96: A 96 Well Plate Automated Catalysis Screening Platform

The DigiCAT 96 is an automated catalyst screening platform that supports a standard 96-well Zinsser block for high throughput screening early on in catalyst development.  The system maintains the same temperature and pressure across each sample, enabling the rapid collection of statistically representative data on the performance of a candidate catalyst.  The 1 ml vials are also compatible with HPLC, allowing the reaction mixes to be directly analyzed by compatible analytical techniques.

Features and Options:

Vessel Types and Volumes

  • 96 well Zinsser block, for 96 simultaneous reactions in 1 ml vials.

Temperature 

  • All samples are maintained at the same temperature, between ambient and 200 °C.

High-Pressure Reactor

  • Automated gas purge (for example, inert) and further pressurize with reacting gas (for example, hydrogenation), up to 35 bar

Stirring Available

  • Magnetic stirring for each reaction vial

Intelligent Software Control and Analysis

  • labCONSOL software control enables regular data logging, multi-step recipes, parameter control and feedback loops. The software adds a responsive intelligence to the DigiCAT 96 system and still delivers an intuitive interface that needs only minimal training to run quickly.

Safety Features

  • Include automatic user-configurable shutdown procedures if a safety condition is exceeded to ensure user safety.
  • Automatic hardware and software fail-safes are installed on every system
