The Kamysz vessel is a modification of the Merrifield solid-phase reactor used in the synthesis of peptides for over 50 years. Kamysz vessels were designed for temperature-supported solid phase synthesis. The shape of the vessel allows using it in a classic heating block (or devices of the Kamush Skiller series) without the need to transfer the content of the reaction mixture to the reaction time at an elevated temperature. In the case of solid-phase synthesis (e.g. chemical synthesis of peptides), all operations are carried out as in the classic Merrifield reactor. Placing the fill in the central part of the Kamysz vessel allows you to work like in the classic Merrifeld vessel (acylation, washing and draining reactions), while allowing the contents of the vessel to be heated in a conventional way (eg water bath, heating block) and microwave.
The patented reaction vessel under the name "Kamysz vessel" type B (with ring) is compatible with the CEM Discover and Discover SP microwave reactor. Borosilicate glass provides microwave transmittance.
As standard, the Kamysz vessels have an inlet port with a GL18 thread, a G2 porous glass filter and a cap with a PTFE tap.
Available models of Kamysz vessels:
- TYPE A (without ring) - 2x15ml (16mm), 2x30ml (22mm), 2x45ml (28mm), 2x70ml (40mm), 2x100ml (40mm)
- TYPE B (with ring) - 2x10ml (16mm), 2x35ml (30mm)
The Kamysz vessels are registred by the Community industrial design EUIPO No. 002753277-0001, 005135696-0001. The Lipopharm.pl company (Zblewo, Poland) is authorized to produce or license a production and sale of Kamysz vessels in the European Union.
