It has now sold 200 of its R-Series flow chemistry systems (pictured) globally.

The 200th system, costing thousands of pounds, was purchased by the University of Manitoba in Canada.

The system has a wide range of applications and is used by major firms including BP, Pfizer, GSK, Sanofi, Novartis and Johnson & Johnson.

Vapourtec’s founder and managing director Duncan Guthrie said: “The R-Series system was launched in 2006 with the aim of making flow chemistry, a fast growing alternative to batch chemistry, more flexible, precise and ultimately productive.

“It has impacted positively on flow chemistry research in a wide range of industries and fields covering petrochemicals, flavourings, pharmaceuticals, generic drug manufacture, polymers and organic electronics.

“Already cited as pivotal within 110 published research papers, the R-Series is one of two flow chemistry systems designed and manufactured by Vapourtec with the E-Series launched in 2013.

“We are delighted that Geoff has helped us reach the 200 landmark as it demonstrates the loyalty and trust that the R-Series has elicited within chemistry research.”
