Specifications - 1.1 Key concepts

firefly is a benchtop instrument optimized for performing genomics liquid handling workflows. There are genomics and non-genomics variants, and a choice of 3 or 6 dispensing heads.

It features a 384 air displacement pipetting head and positive displacement dispense heads, with reagent temperature control from an optional reservoir thermal module, to provide flexible, high performance approaches to a range of applications such as NGS library prep and PCR set up.

A two tier moving deck system, with an additional basement level optionally equipped with a plate shaker and plate thermal module, enables firefly to carry out multiple protocol steps with fewer user interactions.
