Biotech and other life science researchers can create a safer, cleaner, and more efficient working environment in their laboratories by switching from oil bath-based heating of reaction vessels to a new high performance reaction block that can be used with any hotplate stirrer.

The Asynt (Isleham, United Kingdom) DrySyn MULTI converts any standard hotplate stirrer into a high performance reaction block accommodating three round-bottomed flasks (10 to 500 milliliters) or up to 12 reaction tubes or vials.

DrySyn MULTI heating blocks, which are made of chemically resistant, anodized aluminum, offer excellent heating performance to over 300 degrees Celsius. They are able to heat a reaction flask faster than an oil bath with less energy consumption and without the inherent risks and mess of an oil bath.

The DrySyn MULT system is based on an ingenious three-way clamp that secures flasks in place. Furthermore, DrySyn MULTI's shallow well shape increases reaction visibility and minimizes the possibility of glass failure.
