Find the microRNAs that matter

Firefly™ BioWorks has created an integrated solution for planning, assaying, and analyzing microRNA levels tailored directly to you. Our tools help at every step of your assay from choosing the right targets, to running quick and easy customized assays, to seamlessdata analysis and comparisons.
The Firefly™ Discovery Engine assembles a list of the most important microRNAs and associated genes from the scientific literature for any keyword or topic, putting years of research at your fingertips in seconds.

The Firefly™ Discovery MicroRNA Assay can be completed and analyzed in a single afternoon with only 30 minutes of hands on time and works on standard flow cytometers.
With our free Firefly™ Analysis Workbench you can normalize and compare across any subset of microRNAs and samples to generate publication quality heatmaps and bar graphs in minutes.

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.
