The World’s Most Advanced Photoreactor

Introducing the LUCENT360™

Parallel (screen), Batch and Flow with wavelength, light intensity and temperature control in one device.

  • Multiple vial formats and configurations (from 0.3ml to 700 ml)
  • Temperature controlled (0° to 80° C) with thermostatic fluid
  • Interchangeable LED light modules (365 nm through 525 nm)
  • Screen up to 4 wavelengths and/or light intensities simultaneously
  • Heavy duty magnetic stirring
  • Pre-set your favorite experiments for quick repeatability

Industry Leading Photoreactor Design

The LUCENT360™ is the most comprehensive photoreactor on the market. It’s patent pending design provides the most flexibility for parallel, large batch and flow photochemistry.

Reaction vials are immerged in a thermostatic bath controlled by an external heater/ chiller unit, enabling temperature controlled experiment conditions.

Light irradiation is provided by custom, interchangeable light modules that surround the reaction chamber.

The reaction chamber itself is comprised of 2 glass walls (Dewar) that thermally insulate light sources from the reaction vial bath.

Temperature Controlled

Reaction vials can be thermostatically controlled
(0° to 80° C) via a standard
heater/chiller unit.

Interchangeable Light Modules

Four light modules surround the reaction chamber and one light module sits underneath.

Thermally Insulated Reactions

Double glass walls of the reaction chamber keep reaction vials at the correct temperature.

Temperature Controlled Environment (0° to 80° C)

The LUCENT360™ advanced photoreactor includes standard circulation ports on all of its vial holders as well as an internal water pump and high performance heat exchanger.

Connecting the LUCENT360™ to a standard heater/chiller unit enables accurate temperature controlled reaction conditions (0° to 80° C) that are insulated from the heat of light modules. 

A temperature probe (included) can also connect to each of the LUCENT360 vial holders, allowing for precise measurements. Fill and flow rate is controlled by the manual valves accessed on the front panel.

A Short Overview of the Lucent360

Unparalleled Control of Light Wavelengths and Intensities

The LUCENT360™ includes 5 light modules that can be controlled independently. Each module has multiple LEDs that operate at a specific wavelength.

The light modules are interchangeable and, when using a divider in the reaction chamber, enables conditions that can screen multiple wavelengths or light intensities simultaneously.

Lucent360 Case Studies

Case Study: Scaling Up

A reaction was performed at 100 mL scale (5 mmol) with the Lucent360™ batch reactor (HCK1021-01-007) at 450 nm equipped with nitrogen inlet/outlet ports, a septum for syringing in reagents/sampling and a temperature probe. The reaction is cooled by an external chiller set at 25 °C.

Case Study: Multiple LED Intensity Screening in a Single Experiment

The Lucent360™ allows you to quickly investigate the reactions parameters necessary to scale up a reaction at small scale with production using the same instrument. We used it to screen multiple light intensities in one experiment.

Power measurement in Lucent360™

To measure the effective irradiation of samples in the Lucent360™, we performed actinometric experiments with several vial configurations.
