Intuitive, Rapid and Precise

TurboCycler 2 is designed specifically to enhance PCR efficiency and accuracy. It is equipped with a 7”capacitive touchscreen and a friendly graphics user interface, which makes operation highly intuitive.

With fast ramping rate and gradient PCR optimization, TurboCycler 2 greatly improves PCR processing efficiency and accuracy. The optional Wi-Fi module enables users to monitor the working status anytime via mobile devices.

Features and Benefits

Intuitive Operation Experience

  • Easy to Control

The sensitive 7” capacitive touchscreen enables easy operation even with laboratory gloves on.

  • Convenient Tools

The built-in tools allow easy Tm calculation, copy number conversion and master mix preparation.​

  • Friendly User Interface

The simple conversational graphic user interface, which has intuitive spinning wheels, makes adjustment of experiment temperature, time and cycle easy.


Efficient Remote Monitoring

The optional Wi-Fi module allows monitoring PCR run status anytime via mobile devices using the free TurboApp.

Outstanding Performance

  • Fast heating ramp rate up to 5.5 °C/sec
  • Excellent temperature accuracy and uniformity (+/- 0.3 °C)
  • 12-section gradient temperature range from 1 to 24.9 °C for PCR optimization
  • The quick boot-up takes only 45 seconds

The high ramp rate and precise temperature control of TurboCycler 2 gives excellent PCR efficiency.
