Customer testimonials


Accurate temperature control achieving big results, on a small scale


Mya 4 applications which require accurate temperature control:

  • Exothermic reactions - which require active cooling
  • Study of parameters other than temperature - which require reliable and reproducible temperatures
  • Working with temperature-sensitive materials (e.g. biomolecules) - which require tightly controlled temperatures
  • Experiments requiring slow cooling or heating ramps

Johnson Matthey - Macfarlan Smith, API manufacturer

Study of key processing parameters other than temperature
´The precise temperature control provided by the Mya 4 has been essential to understanding key processing parameters of temperature sensitive experiments. It has allowed us to improve our understanding of current manufacturing processes."

" Without accuracy of temperature, you cannot conduct a successful design of experiment (DoE) exercise."
Dr Timothy Davies, Senior Development Chemist

Opioid manufacturer

Carefully controlled cooling ramps for crystallisation optimisation
"Prior to acquiring Mya 4, we used stirring hotplates and liquid cooling baths (dry ice/acetone) when needed. The set up and tinkering using this regime was completely obviated with Mya 4, which is basically a walk up reaction workstation."

"We do a lot of reaction optimisation work (different catalyst loads, different temperatures, etc.) and recently had to do a crystallisation optimisation that required carefully controlled cooling ramps – all of this was a breeze with Mya 4 and made our research progress much quicker."

Senior Process Development Chemist

Purolite Life Sciences, Resin manufacturer

Temperature-sensitive materials and exothermic reactions
´Mya 4 fulfils the need of a multipurpose small-scale reactor system that is not overspecified. The fact that the unit is so versatile is a strong advantage.´
´On previous systems I have looked at, flask sizes were limited to only one or two options.
I would have loved a Mya 4, two years ago so I could have used it as the workhorse for most of the project.´

Dr Patrick Gilbert, R&D Manager
