3D printed microreactors speed up scientific research at the University of Helsinki

Researchers at the University of Helsinki have demonstrated how 3D printing can save both time and money. A team led by Dr. Gianmario Scotti 3D printed disposable microreactors and the research, plus STL files, is now available online. In the academic paper the scientists describe how, “ A stainless steel nanoelectrospray ionisation capillary and a magnetic stir bar were integrated into the reactor during the printing process .” The resulting integrated nanoelectrospray ionisation capillary, Allows direct sampling of a reaction solution without external pumping. It also allows ionisation of the analytes. Therefore, very rapid online mass spectrometric chemical reaction […]
