Pacer at Catalysis and Enabling Technologies for Synthesis

Pacer's Photochemistry LED Illuminator - designed by us for high throughput photochemistry development - will be the star of our booth at next week's specialist event Catalysis and Enabling Technologies for Synthesis, hosted in London on 4th December by the Society of Chemical Industry.

The system is a complete illumination platform used to illuminate photochemistry samples - it's flexible, easy to use and offers high sample throughput. Pacer developed the system from scratch for GSK, one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical companies, for the research and analysis of photochemistry samples. 

GSK required an illumination platform to enable the standardisation of light sources, in order to evaluate the impact of wavelength and light intensity on a photochemical reaction. Solutions available on the market were not only prohibitively expensive, but were inflexible and did not allow the control over wavelength selection and optical power levels that they required.

This was a project perfectly suited to Pacer’s UK Design and Build team. Design and manufacture of a bespoke instrument would require optoelectronics expertise, mechanical and electronic design engineering capability, thermal engineering skills, manufacturing facilities, experience of the design and calibration of specialist laboratory instrumentation – and almost certainly a degree of innovation!

Pacer’s engineering team designed the complete illumination system including the controller, LEDs, high power LED driver and cooler, to work in conjunction with a custom vial housing.The system was designed to use an LED array as a light source, in conjunction with a well plate to hold the photo‐chemistry samples.
