Better Testing Sensitivity
Individual membrane column and vacuum technology for optimal DNA/RNA quality and testing sensitivity
LabTurbo™ systems use individual membrane column and vacuum technology for the best DNA/RNA purification and gene detection performance. LabTurbo’s innovative design allows large sample input (0.2-2 ml) with a small elution volume (50-200 ul), providing enhanced testing sensitivity. The wash-away purification style effectively removes the impurities and avoids any inhibitor carry-over. The individual membrane column also avoids contamination during the purification process.
LabTurbo Membrane Column Technology
|Technology||LabTurbo membrane column and vacuum||Magnetic beads|
|DNA/RNA recovery rate||High||Mediocre from bead loss or challenging specimen type|
|Sample input volume||0.2 to 2 ml (flexible and scalable volume)||Mostly between 0.2-0.5 ml (limited and fixed volume)|
|Cross-contamination risk||Low risk from delicate liquid- handling and separated sample placement||High risk from fast bead agitation and side-by-side sample placement|
Magnetic Beads Technology
Continuous Working Mode
Use the systems to the fullest extent. Achieve maximum throughput per system.
The LabTurbo™ extraction and qPCR functions can be operated independently in order to achieve maximum testing efficiency and provide great flexibility of system use. Different batches of samples can go through DNA/RNA extraction and qPCR at the same time to maximize the system efficiency and shorten the overall time for testing hundreds of samples.
More quality testings with less manpower and time
LabTurbo™ offers great solutions for increasing the throughput of sample processing via complete automation, simple workflow, and faster turnaround time. Simply put the samples and plastic consumables into the system and get the qPCR detection results in 2.5 hours. The full automation successfully reduces the overall testing time by 47.9% compared to the manual method (cited from publication Novel automated sample-to-result SARS-CoV-2 laboratory-developed RT-PCR assay for high-throughput testing using LabTurbo AIO 48 system).

|System||Pipette sample||Plastic/ reagent setup||DNA/RNA Extraction||PCR setup||Total time for 96 samples|
|LabTurbo 48 x 2||Automated in 10 minutes||5 min with auto reagent import||40 minutes||Automatic in 10 minutes||65 minutes|
|R Brand 96 model||Manual transfer in 30 minutes||16.5 minutes||56 minutes||Manual Setup 15 minutes||117.5 minutes|
|Q Brand 96 model||Automated in 10 minutes||21 minutes||230 minutes||Manual Setup 15 minutes||276 minutes|
Ideal for Challenging Sample Types
Process challenging samples with ease and better sensitivity
The LabTurbo™ membrane column technology effectively removes impurities from challenging sample types and matrixes such as stool, urine, blood, and soil. With comprehensive DNA and RNA purification, larger sample volume capacity, and ultra-high nucleic acid concentration, the detection sensitivity is greatly improved via LabTurbo systems.
Full Automation for Special Sample Types
Fully automated for buccal swabs, dry blood spots, and forensic samples
The unique automation and mechanical design of LabTurbo systems allow the system to perform delicate pretreatment of buccal swabs, dry blood spots, and forensic samples. Along with the unique consumable design, these samples can be inserted to the LabTurbo plunger tubes and placed directly on the LabTurbo systems for direct automated processing. It effectively increases the throughput and saves substantial time and effort.
