Screen, batch, and flow

The next generation in photoreactors. The first reactor to allow screen to scale, batch and flow in one device with unparrallel control over wavelength, light intensity and temperature control.

The choice for...
the chemist serious about understanding all the factors necessary to take reaction from screen to scale in batch and flow.

The most advanced photoreactor available anywhere.

EvoluChem™ PhotoRedOx Box

PhotoRedOx Box

Screen easily with standardized format

Our original photoreactor’s patented design is compatible with most vial formats (0.3 ml, 2 ml, 4 ml, 8 ml and 20 ml vials) and its compact design allows for use with any stirring plate. A built-in fan keeps the reaction conditions at room temperature.

The choice for...
the chemist who seeks to standardize laboratory photochemical setups economically. A flexible design allows interchangable LED from 365 to 740 nm and a wide variety of vials.

EvoluChem™ PhotoRedOx Duo

PhotoRedOx Duo

Screen with double the workflow

The PhotoRedOx Duo uses the same patented concept as our original photoreactor but doubles the capacity and includes an additional reaction chamber. The Duo can hold double the capacity as the single box.

The choice for...
the chemist who seeks higher reaction capacity and increased light intensity than found in the PhotoRedOx Box.

EvoluChem™ PhotoRedOx TC

PhotoRedOx TC

Screen with Temperature Control

Based on the same design as the PhotoRedOx Box, the TC version with a standard chiller/heater unit (not included) makes it possible to perform photocatalytic reactions at controlled temperatures at 0 °C to 80 °C.

The choice for...
the chemist who wants control over the temperature of their reaction while keeping the flexibility and control of the PhotoRedOx Box.
