Firefly technology

Firefly is a new platform for multiplexing the measurement of up to 68 microRNAs in a high throughput format. The technology can work directly from either small volumes of biofluids or very low amounts of total RNA. Firefly has developed proprietary hydrogel particles that are individually coded and can be read by standard laboratory flow cytometers. Key advantages of the approach include multiplex analysis of up to 68 miRNAs at the same time in a small sample volume, and direct quantitation of miRNA in biological fluids (serum, plasma, urine) without RNA purification. Firefly also provides software that simplifies assay setup and data analysis.
