The MicroCube™ system is the first compact, handheld instrument designed for chemical route-scouting and receiving instant feedback on reaction success. Fast and efficient processes on microgram scale are now available within minutes, from room temperature to 130°C and from atmospheric pressure to 50 bar. The innovative design enables performance of sensitive reactions without the use of gloveboxes. The instrument exploits the advantages of ThalesNano’s CatCart® technology, allowing safe and easy gas-liquid or gas-liquid-solid phase catalytic reactions, with the use of 12-50 mg catalyst amounts.

Gergely Darvas, CEO of ThalesNano, commented: “We are proud to launch the MicroCube™, a cutting edge new instrument for repeated 0.1-2 milligram samples’ synthesis. The system works in a similar fashion to an automatic pipette and opens up solutions unprecedented on the market.”

The PhotoCube™ Series are the first professional photoreactors in the world, that are available as a self-assembly kit as well. Various configurations tailored to the customer’s needs can be applied to a diverse set of batch, flow, stop-flow and CSTR photochemical reactions. Options for multicolor and UV LEDs enable the users to apply up to 7+1 wavelengths even simultaneously and to cover a wide range of chemical applications.

“These reactors make photochemistry accessible to everyone,” Alex Drijver, CEO of ComInnex, a drug discovery company (, sister company of ThalesNano, added. “The compact and flexible design is combined with high performance, which makes this modular product series unique. Reactions can be carried out in the same instrument with a range of UV to red lights in an effective and easy manner.”
