High-Throughput Materials Discovery

Discovery pipeline for functional materials:

Our synthetic platform, the ChemSpeed ASW2000.

Libraries of organic molecules and inorganic solids are screened with robot-assisted combination. Here, we see the robot’s needle dispensing into custom glassware.

The reaction vessels can be heated or cooled and are fitted with individual reflux-condensers – all chemical transfers and reactions can be performed under innert atmosphere, if need be.

The products are obtained via filtration.

The reactions can be monitored using a camera (here, a Rasperry Pi Camera Module V2 attached to a Dexter Industries GoPiGo2)…

… and using environmental sensors (here, with a Bosch BME680 powered by a Raspberry Pi Zero WH).
