Biotage® Initiator Classic


Microwave Synthesizer Biotage® Initiator classic
Biotage® Initiator with Vial Biotage® Initiator-screen

This product was withdrawn on April 1st 2014.

Biotage® Initiator is the predecessor to the Initiator+, and is an affordable entry-level instrument for standard routine synthesis operations. Providing the same level of reliability and safety as the Initiator+, it delivers basic functions for organic microwave synthesis.

Fully integrated computer

Load and run your samples using a touch screen for simple and intuitive navigation without the need for an external computer, keyboard or mouse. Results can be emailed directly to the user after a run, or downloaded through the USB port at the front of the instrument.

0.2 to 20 mL without system modifications

Use four different vial sizes in any order or combination at any time, without system modifications, for greater flexibility and direct scale-up of milligrams to grams.

Modular design

The Initiator is already prepared for a Robot Eight or Robot Sixty due to its modularity. The system can easily be upgraded from a single-sample manual format to an automated 8- or 60- position system.

Enhanced Heating Performance

The single-mode applicator and the Dynamic Field Tuning™ features offer faster and more powerful (400 W) heating of a broader range of solvents.

Best-in-class safety

All Biotage microwave synthesizers are designed for safe operation at elevated temperatures and pressures. The Initiator triple-tier safety lock feature ensures maximum operator safety at all times.
