New Para-dox® Gen II Reaction Blocks

Published: January 2, 2024

Analytical has recently released its new Gen II line of Para-dox® aluminum reaction blocks for photoredox catalysis and parallel synthesis. Newly designed 48 and 96 position reactors feature an advanced 4-bolt compression sealing system, while 24 position reactors use a 5-bolt system. These new designs provide an easier, more efficient workflow and better performance.

Benefits of the Gen II line include:
• Less bolts = less time to assemble
• Less light bleed when used with Lumidox® LED arrays (48 and 96 position blocks)
• Less Maintenance
• Vials fit tighter (less shifting)
• Longer lasting screws (larger diameter, larger threads)

Additional features:
• Port for thermocouple, sensors, etc.
• Corner holes on both the lid and the bottom for accessory attachment
• Larger holes in lid to accommodate a variety of needle sizes
• Uses only one 1/8” rubber mat compared to two 1/16” mats on previous versions (makes for easier assembly)




A full complement of Gen II reaction blocks are available.
