Full Automation in Compact Size
LabTurbo 24 compact system is a bench-top extractor. It can fully automate DNA/RNA extraction from primary tube sample transfering to purified nucleic acid within a compact size of (W x D x H) 66 x 53 x 82 cm.
Fast Extraction
LabTurbo 24 compact system can process 24 samples in 70 minutes with many protocols.
Highly Concentrated Extraction
LabTurbo provides maximal nucleic acid recovery with a linear input-yield pattern. Large fluid sample volumes up to 2 ml, human/ animal tissue up to 60 mg, and plant tissue up to 200 mg can be processed. The DNA/RNA content can be eluted by small elution volume as low as 60 µl.
User Friendly Features and Functions
LabTurbo features all kinds of user friendly functions: quick worktable setup, intuitive loading check, auto-sampling, auto reagent arranging-filling-cleaning system, auto worktable recovery, and easy maintenance.
Diverse Sample kinds and Applications
Whole blood / buffy coat, human/animal/plant tissue, cultured cells, bacteria, forensic samples (swab, etc), body fluid (serum/plasma etc), and samples which are difficult to handle such as sputum, FFPE and stool can be processed. LabTurbo is suitable for clinical, agriculture, research and forensic.
Guaranteed Result
Performance guaranteed for DNA/RNA recovery, purity, sensitivity, reproducibility, and cross-contamination free by using innovative membrane column vacuum technology.

HBV Serum
Identical samples were extracted by LabTurbo and B brand. Here we can see the better performance of LabTurbo (Higher HBV copies detected). Also, LabTurbo showed no cross-contamination, good consistency and good linearity. (1 to 48 sample numbers indicates the sample position of LabTurbo extraction)
HCV Serum
Identical samples were extracted by LabTurbo and B brand. Here we can see the better performance of LabTurbo (Higher HCV copies detected). Also, LabTurbo showed no cross-contamination, good consistency and good linearity.

Forensic
It is a very tedious and laborious work to pre-lyse and transfer the lysate to automation tubes for forensic samples. However, those works are no longer needed with LabTurbo. LabTurbo is an all-in-one system. Solid forensic samples can be directly loaded without pre-lysis and additional transfer. Nothing is left for labor. LabTurbo works for all kinds of forensic samples.
Sample Amount of Reaction Yields (ng/µl)
Cigarette butts Cut 1 cm filter tip, take 1/2 ~ 0.9
Straw Cut 1 cm straw, take 1/2 ~ 0.12
Blood Swab(30 mL) With blood taken at about 0.5 cm2 ~ 18
Saliva Swab With saliva taken at about 0.5 cm2 ~ 21
Blood stain With blood taken at about 0.5 cm2 ~ 0.6
What are the advantages of using LabTurbo for Forensic Sample Extraction?
No pretreatment needed
Put solid forensic samples directly into sample tubes with the sample plugs and apply them to LabTurbo for direct automated nucleic acid extraction.
Extract different samples at the same time
Different kinds of forensic samples can be processed at the same time. It is not necessary for sample sorting and it is not needed to use different extraction protocols for different kinds of forensic samples. All the samples can be processed at the same time.
Sample-mixing during the interval of lysis incubation
It is a big challenge to get maximal yields of DNA products from forensic samples. The mixing functions during the interval of the long-time lysis incubation is necessary for this challenge. Nothing is left for labor. LabTurbo provides such functions to completely address this challenge and get maximal yields of DNA products.
