in New Kits

Firefly BioWorks is a startup company introducing an innovative technology platform for multiplexed quantification of biomolecules. Their products offer simultaneous detection of many targets per sample with minimal hands-on time. The assay is designed to work on standard flow cytometers and takes 4 hours from experiment to data.
The company is launching an Early Access program for owners of benchtop cytometers and are looking for scientists interested in microRNA profiling. Participants will receive a 100-assay kits free of charge, in exchange for feedback on robustness and usability.
