Asia Modules
Every Asia system includes the Asia Syringe Pump – the most sophisticated flow chemistry pump available.Due to the modular nature of the system all the Asia modules can be purchased separately, then arranged in any fashion to add new functionalities to an existing system. The system can advance with the needs and requirements of your evolving chemistry.


1 Reagent Injector
2 Extremely chemically resistant injection valves with sample loops
2 Pressurized Input Store
This enables the use of air sensitive reagents and eliminates bubble formation when pumping
3 Chip Climate Controller
This enables glass microreactors to be cooled or heated from -15°C to +150°C
The FLLEX (Flow Liquid Liquid Extraction) module is the flow chemistry equivalent of separatory funnels
5 Pressure Controller
Automatically pressurizes the reaction up to 20 bar (300psi)
6 Asia Manager Software
Easy to use for total ‘walk-away’ control of the Asia system
7 Syringe Pump
2 Extremely chemically resistant continuous flow pumps. This can also be used as the “master” to control certain systems without a PC
8 Heater (Tube Reactor Adaptor)
This module has different reactor adaptors and enables temperatures up to 250°C
9 Sampler and Dilutor
This enables on-line reaction analysis by automated sample extraction, dilution and transfer to an analytical system e.g. LCMS or UPLC
10 Automated Collector
This allows collection of multiple reactions in separate vials or vessels with waste automatically diverted
