Question
Is it possible to modify a DRB200 after purchase to add larger wells or an additional block to a single block reactor?
Summary
Modifications to a DRB200.
Answer
There is no way to add a second block to a single block digester. If additional wells are required a second digester would need to be purchased.

It is not possible to replace a block with 13 mm wells only with a block that has 16 or 20 mm wells or replace a block with 16 mm wells only with a block that has 20 mm wells.
It's recommended to get one of the following:
  •  Digital Reactor Block: 9 x 16 mm vial wells, 2 x 20 mm vial wells (Catalog Number/Order Code LTV082.53.30001 {115 Vac} or LTV082.52.30001 {230 Vac})
or
  • DRB200: Digital Reactor Block: 21 x 16 mm vial wells, 4 x 20 mm vial wells (Catalog Number/Order Code LTV082.53.42001 {115 Vac} or LTV082.52.42001 {230 Vac})
These have the capability of running either 16 mm or 20 mm vials as well as 13 mm vials with the use of the Reactor Adapter, 16mm to 13mm, for TNTplus vials, 5/PK (Catalog Number/Order Code 2895805).
