Overview

The MB-Rx is designed around the key concepts of analytical performance, reliability and simplicity. It is a plug-and-play solution that can be used at any time without requiring any consumables or maintenance!

This robust analytical solution provides real-time insight into reaction monitoring for various processes in chemical and biotechnology applications. The MB-Rx enables R&D and process development teams to look into the progress of chemical reactions as they happen. Chemical reaction in a flow or batch reactor requires a fast and efficient method to measure the consumption of reactants as well as the formation of products and by-products in order to optimize an industrial process in the shortest time possible.

 

Data

Spectroscopic performance (typical at 25° C)

Spectral ranges:

  • ZnSe ATR probe + silver halide fibres: 600-3300 cm-1
  • Diamond ATR probe + silver halide fibres: 600-1900 cm-1 + 2300-3300 cm-1
  • ZrO2 ATR probe + chalcogenide fibres: 1550-8000 cm-1

Apodized resolution adjustable from 1 cm-1 to 64 cm-1 (2r increments)
Signal sampling: 24-bit ADC
Limit of Detection for acetone in toluene: 0.1% w/w (60s acquisition, 4 cm-1 resolution) 

 

A comprehensive and intuitive package
The MB-Rx features a number of integrated software modules that include all of the functions required for collecting and analyzing real-time data generated during chemical experiments. The Reaction Configuration Wizard takes the user through the critical steps of the experiment set-up process. The system can generate multiple real-time trends related to spectral features or chemical properties. Experiments can be modified “on the fly” using the full-featured main reaction interface. At the end of a reaction, the experiment data can be saved and reprocessed off-line using a variety of pre-treatments in order to optimize a reaction.
