Key features

Temperature range

The block temperature ranges between −30 °C to +180 °C and the solution temperature range is at least −20 °C to +150 °C. The system features independent control of each zone, either block or solution control.

Wide range of vessels

Available with 2 mL to 400 mL vials, round bottom flasks, tubes and straight-sided process vessels.

Mya compact stirrer

The system is equipped with robust, high-torque overhead stirring. It is a tool-free attachment and is capable of stirring from 100 to 1000 rpm, with independent control over each position.

Minimal zone cross-talk

The high-performance insulation provides a 200 °C difference between adjacent zones, making it perfect for multi-user work and multiple projects.

Cool to −25 °C block temperature with tap water

Strong Peltier technology offers quick cooling, and hence there is no need for a separate chiller

Magnetic stirring as standard

Independent control over each position ranging from 100 rpm to 1000 rpm.

Space saving

Small benchtop footprint occupies less space compared to four separate reaction set-ups.

Reflux or manifold head

Performs efficient refluxing and distribution of inert gas. The reflux head is water-cooled and utilized with reflux tubes. The manifold head distributes water for glass condensers.

Excellent visibility

The Mya 4 Reaction Station enables easy view of the contents of the vessels.

Touch-screen control pad

The touch screen control pad is intuitive, user-friendly and operated through manual control or set automated profiles. It is supplied with the Mya 4 Reaction Station.

Single or multi-user operation

Independent control of heating or cooling and stirring of each zone is available.

Optional PC control software

Integrate and control of third-party devices like balances, pumps and pH

Manifold or reflux head

  • Distribute gas for inerting
  • Water-cooled system
  • Manifold head
    • Water distribution is done for individual condensers
    • Equipped with non-return shut-off valves
  • Reflux head
    • Performs efficient refluxing in a simple set-up
    • Cools the exterior of reflux tubes

Magnetic or optional overhead stirring

  • Designed for integrated magnetic stirring ranging from 100 ppm to 1000 ppm
  • Optional overhead stirring along with Mya Compact Stirrer
    • Stirs range from 100 rpm to 1000 rpm
    • Has a tool-free attachment
    • Robust and high torque motor available
  • Options to use magnetic or overhead stirring in adjacent zones
  • Independent control over stirring speed of each position
