bCUBE® communicates over two main channels: Bluetooth and Ethernet. The former is used in conjunction with Hyris bAPP on a smartphone, while the latter allows bCUBE® to be fully controlled by a Windows PC through the bPANEL software interface.
Only if you wish to experiment with your own protocols, or change the test parameters. If you use the pre-set protocols for your testing and research use, you can control bCUBE® with the bAPP on your smartphone.
Absolutely! The supplied power source works at both 110V and 220V, and the power cord can be easily interchanged with the one compatible with the standard of your destination country.
No, you don’t. bAPP’s extremely intuitive interface will guide you through every step of the setup and analysis. You’ll be able to start your analysis with only a few simple touches, and our results interpretation engine will assist you in determining the outcome.
Yes. By connecting bCUBE® to a Windows PC, you can use the bPANEL software interface to fully exploit its capabilities. Create custom protocols, run thermal cycling or isothermal protocols, perform high resolution melting analysis, and scan all your samples at the same time. With bCUBE®, even the most demanding biologist will be satisfied.
Yes. bCUBE® is capable of running custom thermal cycling protocols, maximizing ramp speed, and running Real Time PCR analyses. Moreover, its flexible thermal control algorithm is able to keep a constant temperature profile, thus maximizing stability and precision, and giving outstanding performance in isothermal amplification protocols.
Yes. bCUBE® can control slow temperature ramps very precisely, and the resolution of its temperature sensor (< 0.05°C) enables melting analyses with very high resolution.
At present, our standard model is compatible with FAM and VIC fluorophores (and all equivalents). In addition, due to the modular nature of its patented technology, a custom optical design can be requested to make bCUBE® compatible with virtually any type of fluorophore.
Yes. bCUBE® is able to scan all samples simultaneously for each of the installed wavelengths (FAM and VIC fluorophores for the standard model). This allows analyses with multi-targets or an internal control.
For quick response on technical questions, you can use our ‘Contacts’ section on our website. If you have mechanical issues with the instrument, we can provide remote assistance by connecting directly to your bCUBE® via the internet.
