Press Release Summary: Aitken Scientific's software engineering expertise partnered
with ThalesNano's H-Cube technology and the Gilson GX271 sampler has unleashed the
full potential of the H-Cube system, enabling full automation of the hydrogenation

Press Release Body: Thame, UK - Aitken Scientific Ltd announces an agreement with
ThalesNano to license automation software for the newly launched H-Cube Autosampler.
This product combines a standalone hydrogenation reactor, H-Cube, with an industry
recognized automated liquid handler to increase throughput in the development of new

The potential of the system was initially identified by a major pharmaceutical
company who found the H-Cube's limited throughput and no automation as a problem.
They wanted to use the H-Cube for high throughput synthesis for building compound
libraries. Aitken Scientific were approached to create the automation software. They
developed a user friendly interface for the control application that linked the
ThalesNano H-Cube to the Gilson GX271 sampler with its integrated high pressure
valves to provide the ability to automatically load samples into the H-Cube and then
collect the resultant product.

Combining Aitken Scientific's software engineering expertise with ThalesNano's
innovative technology and Gilson's compact, proven technology has demonstrated that
a complex process can be streamlined and simplified.

The system provides: Automated Hydrogenation, processing of a large number of
samples, automated collection of product, wizard driven software, queue reactions
with different parameters and chemistry and software support.

Many companies that already own an H-Cube will just need to add some additional
hardware with the software to create a fully automated system. All of this is
available from ThalesNano. Aitken Scientific are proud to have been involved in
delivering this innovative solution.
