User-fiendly software Horizon MB

The new MB-Rx reaction monitor enables R&D and process development teams to look into the progress of chemical reactions as they happen. The system delivers valuable information of the reaction kinetics – from raw material to the formation of products and by-products - in order to optimize development cycles and industrial processes in the shortest time possible. Later analyses and evaluation of the reaction data are performed through the integrated Horizon MB software.

The MB-Rx solution targeting R&D laboratories and pilot plants. It was designed around the key concepts of analytical performance, reliability and simplicity. The reaction monitor provides chemists with direct access to real-time experiment data via a rugged fibre-optic based ATR probe and an intuitive software interface. It is a plug-and-play solution that can be used at any time, and it does not require any consumables or maintenance.
