Essential in many fields and omnipresent in our daily lives, chemistry is a key sector that actively contributes to improve our daily life.

From the intermediate of organic chemistry, the fine chemical sector is developing complex molecules from many chemical reactions in series then formulated into specific products.


This sector must offer on the market innovative products immediately. Efficient and innovative synthesis tools less time consuming and space can help to meet this requirement.

Interchim who always listens to their customers, provide efficient and innovative parallel synthesis systems to improve productivity and save space.

  • Removable reflux head allows reaction tubes to be transferred between heated base, cooled base or stand.

Carousel 12 improves productivity in a busy R&D lab

As the pace of innovation increases, many companies are switching from the traditional process of ‘one-at-a-time’ analogue synthesis, which is time consuming and highly labour intensive, to more efficient methods.

carousel 12_radleys _interchim_blog_0216This was the case in the small, space-limited R&D laboratory at the School of Pharmaceutical Science, Sun Yat-Sen University where they wanted to improve the productivity of experiments and safety. Using their existing setup of a simple water condenser, heated magnetic stirrer and glass flask for drug synthesis / combination reactions they experienced long reaction times and with limited space, project progress was always slow.

After testing Radleys Carousel 12 Plus Reaction Station which offers twelve parallel reactions from 1 to 20ml scale, with uniform heating or cooling of each reaction tube, the laboratory purchased two units.

The Laboratory Supervisor said “The Carousel 12 is very convenient for us to use and improves our efficiency”. The lack of space is no longer a problem as 12 experiments can be run simultaneously owing to the Carousel 12’s small benchtop footprint.

Radleys Carousel 6 &12 Plus™ Reaction Stations are the best parallel synthesis tools to optimize working time and save laboratory space. These innovative chemical equipments will enable researchers to have safer, cleaner, greener and more productive chemical research.
