Versatility & Value

With its introduction, Discover S-Class System reset the benchmark in versatility and made everything else seem so limited.

Unique Features

Now the world’s most flexible microwave system is the world’s most flexible automated microwave system.

  • Intelligent Pressure Management – Use the first and only system to offer fully automated pressure management for elevated reaction conditions with the patent-pending IntelliVentTM technology. Nothing could be simpler or safer!
  • Optional Integrated Camera – See the changes occurring in your reaction in situ! Combine a digital camera with your autosampler to monitor your chemistry during the irradiation cycle. A perfect tool for documentation and publication support!
  • Vessel Flexibility - Switch seamlessly between 10- and 35-mL vials. Larger scale reactions can be accomplished in an optional 80-mL vessel. Add gaseous reagents to your chemistry using the Gas Addition option, or perform open vessel reactions with all the benefits of microwave energy!
  • Variable Speed Stirring – Discover is the only system on the market that allows you to choose the speed of agitation and to change it during the method.
  • More Connectivity – Easily monitor your reactions while freeing your time for other projects! Options such as wireless or remote viewing allow you to observe your reactions from another PC with your web browser.
  • Ethernet, USB & Wireless! Watch your samples process automatically from the comfort of your desk.
  • Timed start allows samples to start late in the day maximizing sample runs during the day.


Only Discover...

  • supports atmospheric and elevated pressure reaction conditions.
  • accommodates reaction scales from 0.1 to 125 mL with the industry’s largest single mode cavity.
  • features a complete line of modular accessories that allow the reactor to easily adapt to your needs. Do your chemistry your way.
  • perform peptide synthesis, low temperature reactions (T<0 oC), and reactions with gaseous reagents all in the same microwave cavity!
  • watch your reactions as they take place with the optional integrated camera.
  • offers multiple options for reaction control including infrared and fiberoptic temperature sensors.
  • conserves your budget with the lowest total cost of ownership of any microwave synthesis system on the market.


Open Vessel Chemistry

All the benefits of microwave energy without having to use a pressurized reaction vessel!

Ease of translation: Don’t change a thing! Place your round bottom flask and condenser in a microwave to perform reactions at reflux.

Eliminate gaseous byproducts: Don’t need the byproduct gas? Allow it to escape, just as you would when using an oil bath or hot plate. Need an inert gas flow? Use a condenser to aid in the reflux process and set up an inert gas flow at the top.

Perform larger scale reactions: The Discover cavity accommodates up to a 125-mL round bottom flask. Perform reactions down to 10’s of milliliters or up to 75 milliliters. Numerous studies have proven that microwave energy will not only accelerate reactions performed in pressurized vessels, but also reactions performed at atmospheric pressures.
