The new RX-10 Reactor Control system (photo) connects and automates jacketed laboratory reactors and controls thermostats, stirrers and pumps with a single touchscreen interface that provides a consistent platform across all laboratory reactors. RX-10 controls jacketed laboratory reactors with third-party heating and cooling systems, liquid addition, stirrers and process analytical technology (PAT) tools. Operating with a touchscreen walk-up interface allows scientists to consistently control reactors on any scale from milliliters to multiple liters — reducing human error and training cost, says the company. RX-10 Reactor Control reduces the time needed to merge and process analytical data, visualize and identify key reaction events and create smart reports. — Mettler Toledo, Greifensee, Switzerland
