firefly+ expands on the current liquid handling capabilities of firefly with an integrated thermocycler and additional labware capability, all while maintaining our commitment to usability and compact design. firefly+ grants genomics researchers the ability to run completely automated NGS library preparation, giving even more time for critical thinking tasks like data analysis and experiment design.
Transfer between all functionalities is performed automatically with the in-built pick and place robot. No manual intervention is needed from scientists to run complete genomics workflows.
Retain access to the full range of liquid handling capabilities while the thermocycler is in operation. Use firefly+ as you need it to meet your specific challenges and throughput requirements.
firefly+ incorporates the Inheco ODTC® which delivers fast, uniform and precise heating across every plate.
firefly+ expands on the existing firefly deck capacity. Hold up to 15 additional tip boxes and 9 plates or lids at once with the added shelving space.
firefly retains its signature compact benchtop footprint. The addition of the firefly+ module takes the total width to just over 1 meter.
firefly+ integrates seamlessly with the base firefly unit and is operated using firefly’s robust and user-friendly software, enabling simple protocol development and execution.
“With this newest development, we’ve added even more functionality whilst retaining firefly’s signature compact footprint, so labs don’t need to sacrifice premium lab space to achieve complete end-to-end automation. The operational versatility of firefly+ supports labs of all sizes, applications and throughput requirements. We’re providing genomics scientists with the freedom and tools to reach maximum efficiency.”
