bCUBE®: a miniaturized device for the analysis of nucleic acid

The bCUBE® is a miniaturized, state-of-the-art device for the analysis of nucleic acids. It allows user to run both temperature cycles and isothermal analysis, enabling a wide array of DNA and RNA detection methods such as qPCR, isothermal amplifications (LAMP), etc… The bCUBE® is programming and managing directly by Wi-Fi.


  • Portable and miniaturized, fast DNA/RNA amplification and detection
  • Robust, compact, lightweight for “in the field” operation
  • High precision thermal control
  • Performing Isothermal Amplification, Real Time PCR and Melting Curves
  • Simultaneous multi wavelength detection
  • Fully controllable with a Smartphone through bAPP®
  • Easy-to-use: only 2H of training, non specialized users
  • Cloud storage with bDATA®
