Keeping a firm ‘GRASP’ on the RT-PCR workflow
HYRIS™ bCUBE™, a palm-sized device which is capable of running RT-PCR as well as data reporting is now available. With wifi-connectivity, this plug-and-play device handle RT-PCR workflow within 2 hours anywhere at any time. Ideal for remote locations.
bCUBETM is a palm-size device which runs real time RT-PCR as well as analysing data within 90 minutes. It has a maximum of 36 samples loading capacity and is fully plug-and-play with no calibration or technical installation required beforehand. This highly modernized item also has wireless network connection and two integrated user-friendly apps (HYRIS bAPPTM and bDATATM). Last but not least, bCUBE bears CE and IVD certification, and to be used with corresponding PCR kit (bKITTM, check our corresponding COVID-19 solution page for more details!).
- Fitting on the palm of one hand: 100x100x120 mm
- Real time RT-PCR device weighting around 1kg
- Able to run PCR, Isothermal amplification and melting curves
- Auto-adaptive thermal control that sweeps from very fast (thermal cycling) to very slow ramps (melting curves)
- High speed detection enables high resolution melting curves (sampling < 0.05°C)
- 2 or 3 wavelengths detection
- Supporting Wifi-connection, plug-and-play

How many samples can you run on bCUBETM?
Two sizes of well plate are available: 16 and 36, so a maximum of 16 or 36 samples can be loaded per run.
Is bCUBETM an open system? Can we run other kits on it rather than bKITTM?
Yes, bCUBETM can run other brand of PCR kits, however a protocol needs to be developed prior for the best performance
How do we control/operate bCUBETM, is there a separate platform to use?
The device can be connected to computers or even phones/tablets (which has bAppTM installed) via Ethernet or Wifi. The software bAppTM will be used to operate the device.
Where do we interpret the data?
User can simply review all data on bAppTM, and will be able to export them anytime they want.
How many fluorescent channels does bCUBETM have? What wavelength does it detect?
It has two channels and can detect wavelength at 524 and 572 nm.
