We’re excited to announce the release of a new software version for Bento Lab. The update improves stability, and brings new features that have been requested by user feedback.
You can see watch a walk through of the software changes on our YouTube channel here. If you are not yet a subscriber, our YouTube channel is a great way to stay connected.
We highly recommend all Bento Lab users to update their firmware following these steps. Firmware update can be launched automatically, when Bento Lab is connected to Wifi.
Run multiple modules
We have completely rewritten the power management software to enable running the PCR module concurrently with either the centrifuge or gel electrophoresis module. With the increasing popularity of LAMP workflows, we believe that this will be particularly useful for users who want to run the heat block at a fixed temperature whilst using the centrifuge for quick or sustained spins.
Additional changes and fixes
- Fixing of graphical glitches
- Improved early detection of heat block hardware issues
- 3 second waiting period until gel power is paused on disconnection
- Lid temperature can be customised
We highly recommend all Bento Lab users to update their firmware following these steps.
If you encounter any issues during your firmware update, please get in touch with us.
