LabKit™-alr Standard-ALR-System
LabKit™-alr1 (1 litre) & LabKit™-alr2 (2 litres)

Automated laboratory process plants (ALR) are essential in modern product and process development and optimisation. They quickly pay off thanks to the more intensive use of the laboratory resources and the release of laboratory personnel from routine activities. They are a sure way of achieving the best possible level of reproducibility and of increasing security and quality.

Conventional automatic laboratory process plants are limited to simple synthesis, provide too little possibilities for expansion and are thus no longer able to meet current demands.

The fully automatic laboratory process plants of HiTec Zang are available as single and parallel reactor systems. In addition to the standard LabKit™ configurations, you can have systems manufactured from our LabKit™ program especially to suit your demands.
