In observance of the upcoming holidays, Firefly will be closed on November 27th and 28th, December 24th, 25th, and 26th, and January 1st. We will be unavailable to receive samples on those days, so please schedule deliveries accordingly. Furthermore, we highly recommend that shipments not be scheduled for delivery the day before holidays, as occasional shipping delays occur, and packages may be delivered late. Thank you for your consideration, and we hope you and your families enjoy the holidays ahead! --The Firefly Team

Firefly announces new Circulating microRNA Assay - now accepting beta testers!

Monday, March 3, 2014

Firefly BioWorks has developed a novel best-in-class validation platform for multiplexed detection of microRNAs from serum, plasma, and blood in a high-throughput format. This Firefly Circulating microRNA Assay works directly from purified RNA with no required preamplification or cDNA library prep, and utilizes a novel, post-hybridization amplification step - enabling both greater efficiency and decreased bias compared to currently existing methods.

The Firefly Circulating microRNA assay is now available in limited release to beta-testers only. We are actively seeking beta testers to be the first to utilize this exciting technology. We are also hard at work on a Circulating microRNA assay that works directly from crude serum and plasma. Click here for more information or to apply to take part in our beta testing program.
