New High Pressure Multireactor

New High Pressure Multireactor

The CHOCO Group recently bought a new MBS 2500 from Parr through their Norwegian distributor Houm AS. Now we can run 9 reactions in parallell with high pressure and individual measurement of pressure. Screening of new catalysts will be much easier now!

At a ceremony with Ashot as host, she got the name Maggie after the late iron lady Margareth Thatcher

Our own postdoc Ashot Gevorgyan and the brilliant engineer Wojciech from Parr who made the instrument.
