Asynt was formed in July 2003 with the aim to develop, supply and support new, sustainable and novel products central to the laboratory. Providing world-leading technologies for scientific research, Asynt’s unique range of innovative products and services are developed by chemists for chemists.
About us: what’s special about Asynt
At Asynt we are committed to investing in new technologies that respond to the real demands of industry and academia. Effective. Sustainable. Safe.
Since inception, we have developed the highly versatile DrySyn range (a clean, safe alternative to oil baths and heating mantles) both reducing costs in purchasing / disposal of oil and a 35% reduction in energy consumption. These oil-free heating blocks provide brilliant thermal performance without the associated risks of using standard oil-based systems.
We also pride ourselves in reducing laboratory water consumption using our waterless air-cooled CondenSyn units which will not only help save the environment but also reduce the risk of lab floods and save you money. In addition, we also offer a diverse range of highly effective water circulators.
Key product lines available in addition to the DrySyn and CondenSyn ranges include:
With a broad range of scientific equipment and consumables ranging from bench top laboratory scale to pilot plant and beyond both in the chemical and biological sectors you can be sure to find the right apparatus to meet your needs if it’s out there. If it doesn’t exist yet we’ll work with you to develop a bespoke solution – we call this the “Asyntise” process. By combining our knowledge and expertise with yours we can create practical tools for your research needs. These products may be in the form of a one-off custom piece or could evolve into a commercial product useful to a wider audience.
Asynt’s Managing Director, Martyn Fordham, spent almost twenty years dealing with the requirements of research chemists (at the outset just custom glassblowing) before forming Asynt. For Martyn, having the right staff who are both knowledgeable and dedicated to customer support has been the key to Asynt’s successful growth.
Our team has extensive experience in manufacturing, engineering, scientific glassblowing, and in the laboratory. We work hard to help our customers find the best possible solutions and are committed to continuing our long history of meaningful in-house product development, making your research more productive and effective.
