It fits into any laptop bag and can travel wherever your science goes.

Take your lab wherever you go
Bring your sequencing workflow in your hand luggage. Test samples on site and collect data immediately.

A portable solution for sample prep
Extract DNA and prepare libraries for sequencing. Advance in‐the‐field sequencing with a mobile workflow. Take advantage of Bento Lab for DNA extraction and library preparation in extreme environments.

Prepare DNA barcodes for sequencing
Bring key steps in house and get results faster. Produce good amplicons from very small amounts of sample material, ready for sequencing with a portable sequencer, or an external partner.

Isothermal Thermocycler
Fast, repeatable PCR results with accurate, uniform block temperature for routine PCR. Equally useful as a block incubator with or without heated lid. Precise, rapid temperature measurements using platinum resistance thermometers, the industry gold standard.

No need for extra devices
Intuitive graphical PCR protocol editor on-screen. No need to connect to a phone, tablet or laptop to edit your protocols. Save up to 100 PCR protocols. Validated design with performance verified by researchers at world-leading research universities. Fully compatible with standard plasticware and reagents.
