Pre-launch of SpinChem® MagRBR at BioTrans 2017 symposium

Get a sneak-peek of the latest product prototype, SpinChem® MagRBR, created to simplify parallel laboratory development and reaction screening in liquid volumes 5-50 mL. Delivered pre-packed with catalysts or adsorbents, handling of heterogeneous reactions is incredibly simple and no filtration is needed to remove the solid particles.

Apply to become one of the beta testers by contacting SpinChem with your application ideas. If chosen, you will become one of the first to try out and give feedback on the new SpinChem® MagRBR concept.

Pre-launch of the SpinChem® MagRBR will occur at the BioTrans symposium on Biocatalysis and Biotransformation, July 9-13 in Budapest, Hungary. We hope to see you there in the SpinChem booth!

   



SpinChem recruits new product development engineer

SpinChem speeds up product development for large scale processes by recruiting another product development engineer. We welcome Mattias Ekström to the team! Mattias holds a Master of Science degree in Engineering Physics from Umeå University. He is specialized in computational physics problem solving with broad experiences within mathematics, physics and scientific programming. “I am a problem solver devoted to building efficient work flows”, says Mattias.

SpinChem celebrates ten year anniversary

Today it is exactly 10 years since the company SpinChem AB was registered. Many things have changed, including the company name, but the innovative spirit and service minded soul remains strong. We celebrate this with a Swedish fika. Fika is considered a social institution and central to life in Sweden. Today’s afternoon fika at SpinChem includes black coffee and delicious cakes among other things. Stop by if you are in the neighborhood!

New SpinChem cartridges with Purolite biocatalysts

SpinChem is releasing exchangeable resin-filled cartridges that will allow for easier and faster screening and optimization of biocatalysis production processes. The cartridges are designed to fit perfectly into the four compartments of the SpinChem® rotating bed reactor (RBR). Due to inertial forces, spinning the SpinChem® RBR in substrate solution will allow the substrate to have multiple passages through the cartridges to interact with the enzyme immobilized on the resin within. After completing the screening process, the cartridges are easily washed and removed from the RBR to be reused at a later time or in another application.

Through an exciting new cooperation agreement with Purolite Life Sciences, the cartridges will be delivered pre-packed with a variety of Purolite® Lifetech™ resins for lipase biocatalysis and enzyme immobilization screening. The two companies will jointly market and sell the new cartridge products. Production and distribution will be handled solely by SpinChem AB.

“We are very happy about the new cooperation with Purolite Life Sciences. The agreement is a strong confirmation of the benefits with our RBR technology, and will help us to reach new customer groups with the SpinChem® products”, said Emil Byström, CEO at SpinChem AB.

The new SpinChem® cartridges will be launched the 9th of May at the Biocatalysis in Non-Conventional Media (BNCM) conference in Rostock, Germany.

New SpinChem rotating bed reactor with optimized solid-to-liquid ratio

Streamline your heterogeneous reactions with SpinChem® rotating bed reactors (RBR) to achieve an easier, faster and more profitable process. With a sleek design in electropolished stainless steel, the new SpinChem® RBR S3 offers a 35-75% higher solid-to-liquid ratio, and excellent resistance to corrosion.

New to the updated version of the SpinChem® RBR S3 is the modular design. This enables expansion of the solid phase volume by simply adding on an additional bed to a pre-existing setup. The SpinChem® RBR S3 Plus consists of two rotating bed reactors that can be easily attached to each other for seamless scalability. The two rotating bed reactors cover lab scale reactions of 300-3000 ml.
