Mettler-Toledo India has introduced OptiMax™, a powerful synthesis workstation optimized for pharmaceutical, fine-chemical and specialty-chemical development in India
Online PR News – 14-October-2012 – 10th October, 2012 Mumbai/ India – Mettler-Toledo India, a wholly subsidiary of Mettler-Toledo Inc (NYSE: MTD), has introduced OptiMax™, a powerful synthesis workstation optimized for pharmaceutical, fine-chemical and specialty-chemical development in India. The unique design and its intuitive interface improve the organic synthesis process and maximize time-to-result in product development in increasingly competitive markets. The compact design of OptiMax™ allows experiments to run from -40 to 180°C without oil or ice baths or bulky cryostats with little to no training.
• No oil baths, ice baths, and cryostats required
• Precise temperature control from −40 to 180 °C
• Small and mobile
• Wide range of different reactors and stirrers
• Simple and intuitive touch screen operation
• No learning curve
• Secure unattended operation
• Data logging making experiments traceable and reproducible
• Data export into iControl and MS-Excel®
Rising time-to-market pressure in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries is forcing chemical and process development chemists to turn to more productive tools for organic synthesis and process development. METTLER TOLEDO’s OptiMax™ can help meet these pressures. The newly designed workstation has been created by chemists for chemists. It simplifies the way organic synthesis is performed and provides significant productivity gains during process development while carefully tracking synthesis to successfully produce quality data.
Chemical and process development chemists are required to make the right decisions faster than ever. Often, this means performing process characterization while optimizing chemistry at the same time. With OptiMax™, process development benefits from enhanced traceability and reproducibility.
METTER TOLEDO’s OptiMax™ provides one simple platform for safe, effective product and process development. “Application testing in specialty chemical research or pharmaceutical pre-clinical trials is important to shorten time-to-market. But without the right technology and instruments, this speed can compromise experiment and its data quality” said Mr. Mukesh Saxena, Head- AutoChem and Government Business, Mettler-Toledo India. “The challenges—that is, reduced time-to-market, simplification and safety—are overcome with OptiMax™.”
METTLER TOLEDO has made the OptiMax™ synthesis workstation compact, robust and simple to use. The intuitive touch screen allows reaction parameter changes such as temperature with just a few clicks. With a variety of reactors from 250 mL to 1 L, different stirrers and other accessories, assembling the workstation or altering configuration is quick and almost effortless.
Ease of execution, accuracy and reproducibility are critical factors in synthesis and development and are ensured by OptiMax™. Experiment data are presented in real time either numerically or as graphic trends. Data recording and reporting capabilities contribute to highly traceable and reproducible results.
Intelligent built-in automation eliminates error-prone steps and reduces process variability. With this high level of automation, OptiMax™ makes nighttime more productive, too. Experiments can be programmed for execution safely around the clock and automatic data logging ensures that no critical process information is missed.
“Essentially, OptiMax™ goes a long way towards eliminating the bottlenecks that often plague high-volume R&D operations,” concluded Mr. Mukesh Saxena. “OptiMax™ is a truly useful self-contained walk-up tool that chemists can employ for enhancing synthesis and, thus fast application testing, characterization and optimization of even their most sensitive and high-profile experiments.”
