Home > Press > Syrris Defies the Recession: Sales up 80%, despite current global economic climate

Abstract:
Syrris, a leading chemistry automation product innovator, has had an exceptionally strong start to 2009. Despite the global economic downturn, Syrris has worked to successfully expand its entire product range, selling not only into Europe, but the US and Asia as well. With sales up 80% on the first six months of 2008, this rapid growth and success is reflected in the recent opening of a new subsidiary office in India. This timely expansion provides Syrris with access to the growing chemical and pharmaceutical industry within the rapidly emerging Indian market.

Syrris Defies the Recession: Sales up 80%, despite current global economic climate

Royston, UK | Posted on July 4th, 2009

Syrris design and manufacture world-leading flow chemistry, microreactor and automation products for research and development chemists. Since January, Syrris's flow chemistry products, including the FRX, a modular flow chemistry system and Africa, a fully automated microreactor flow system have grown significantly. Furthermore, Syrris's batch reactor products, including Atlas, a manual or automated system for controlling one or multiple reactions in parallel of up to 5 litres in vials, flasks or jacketed reactors, has experienced exceptional success - in particular, the Atlas Calorimeter System and the Atlas Syringe Pump. The Atlas range has recently been expanded to include a host of additional products, such as the high torque stirrer and adapter as well as the autosampler module and probe.

Working in collaboration with both Bruker and Prosonix this year, Syrris has established symbiotic relationships to greatly benefit the user. The Atlas FT-IR System for in situ reaction monitoring is a fully-automated system, which combines the technology of the Atlas automated reactor with Bruker Optics' Matrix-MF, a process ready fourier transform infra red (FT-IR) spectrometer. The Atlas SonoLab™ System combines the Atlas jacketed reactor platform with Prosonix's new SonoLab ultrasound technology for reproducible control of crystallizations and allows selectivity of parameters such as particle size, shape, crystallinity and polymorph.

Syrris now boasts a global network of 23 distributers, including two in the UK and one in the US. Combined with their subsidiary offices in the US, Japan and most recently, in India, Syrris's complete product offering is available worldwide with extensive customer service and support.

About Syrris Limited
Established in 2001, Syrris Limited is one of the fastest growing science SMEs in the UK employing over 30 scientists and engineers at its facility in Royston (near Cambridge). Founders Mark Gilligan and Richard Gray come from a background of developing automation products for chemists at companies such as The Technology Partnership (TTP) and Mettler Toledo.



Syrris develops general productivity tools for chemists such as the Atlas automated chemistry systems. Atlas can be configured into a wide range of different systems including Lithium and Sodium for round bottom flasks (magnetically and overhead stirred respectively) and Potassium for jacketed vessels. Other Atlas systems, designed for specific applications, including calorimetry, volumetric dosing, gravimetric dosing, pH, etc, are also available.



Syrris also specialise in flow reactors for R&D chemists, including FRX: a low cost flow chemistry system and Africa (Automated Flow Reaction Incubation and Control Apparatus): a modular system for library synthesis, aqueous work-up and reaction optimization that will ultimately reduce the time taken to develop, synthesize, screen and review a chemical entity, thus vastly speeding up the drug discovery process.



In recognition of its technological achievements, Syrris has been awarded a prestigious UK DTI SMART Exceptional Grant. Syrris has also won a significant DTi MNT (Micro and Nano Technology) award which is being used to establish a new subsidiary called The Dolomite Centre Ltd. This new company is focused on design and fabrication of Microfluidic devices for a wide range of applications.
