HeatFlow Technologies created and patented the next generation of quantitative, real-time PCR (qPCR) technology. Heat Flow Polymerase Chain Reaction (HF-PCR®) is a cost-effective, user-friendly qPCR method free of the fluorescent components and optical equipment that confine other qPCR systems to advanced research and commercial clinical laboratories.
Our HF-PCR device, FireCycler®, is designed to meet the needs of existing qPCR market customers, while expanding the market to smaller clinical laboratories and point-of-care settings with less complicated devices and assays.
The company's current research and development work is focused on our initial clinical product: an HIV-1 viral load assay. For more information about HF-PCR and FireCycler, please see the Technology page of this website or contact us.
