Tianlong GeneFlex Nucleic Acid Extractor and Gentier Mini+ Real-Time PCR System

Tianlong of Xi'an, China, has globally launched the GeneFlex Nucleic Acid Extractor and Gentier Mini+ Real-Time PCR System.

The GeneFlex system can form 16 x n different throughputs, enabling simultaneous extraction in different projects without manual interference. It features a sample processing volume of 200 μL to 500 μL, with larger sample volumes enabling a higher yield of nucleic acid. It also features precise temperature control with a range of 30° C to 120° C, a heating speed of 4° ±0.2 °C/s, temperature accuracy of ±1° C, and temperature uniformity of ≤1.0° C. This enables researchers to achieve reproducible results with high accuracy, the company said.

The Gentier Mini+ Real-Time PCR System is lightweight at 3.2 kgs and features a 7-in. full-color LCD touchscreen monitor. It can perform fluorescence scanning of all 16 wells in 1 second, and has multiple interconnectivity methods, including network port, USB, and Wi-Fi, the company said.
