ert atmosphere for all reaction vessels simultaneously. This feature is available for, or is already incorporated into, some standard reaction blocks and manual synthesizers, in particular those with built-in cooling devices for reactions under real reflux conditions (see Tables 3 and 4; Fig. 5).

6.2.3 Semiautomated Systems

These robots perform wash procedures in an automated fashion, while reagents have to be added manually. Generally, three to six online solvents are available. To accelerate wash cycles some instruments use multichannel pipettes or solvent delivery heads. For details, see Table 5.
