FireflySci Inc. located in Staten Island NY has been at the forefront of cuvette innovations since they opened their doors in 2014. Being the newcomer to the cuvette world, FireflySci had to prove their worth right out of the gate.

Their first accomplishment was the first e-commerce cuvette shop. This offered customers a fast and convenient way to buy cuvettes whether it 10 am or 2 am. The e-commerce site was followed by an extensive database of cuvette frequently asked questions and how-to videos on cuvette care, cleaning, and uses. The articles and videos can be found on FireflySci's website.

One of the biggest reasons for the explosive growth of FFS is how they carefully pay attention to each and every customer. Rather than shuffling a tough customer to another vendor, the team at FireflySci takes extra care to do their best to meet their needs. The latest product of this has been the development of a cuvette washer for large lightpath cuvettes.

A cuvette washer is a powerful device that makes cleaning a cuvette lighting fast. A standard cuvette washer can wash cuvettes with lightpaths from 4 mm up to 10 mm. The limitation of the current design is that cuvettes come in much larger sizes such as 20 mm, 50 mm, up to 100 mm. Scientists with these large lightpath cuvettes had no cuvette washer option and had to use the soaking method to clean their cuvettes. The soaking way takes hours to do and the downtime while waiting for the cuvette to be washed can be painful.

To help streamline experiments for these researchers FireflySci is designing a large light path cuvette washer. What is excellent about the engineering team at FFS is how fast they can get a product from the idea phase to the production phase. The idea for this cuvette washer was introduced in April 2018 and the first prototype has been made, and the demo is available on YouTube and http://www.fireflysci.com.

The engineers at FireflySci are fine-tuning the design of this cuvette washer and hope to have an official release in late 2018. Researchers who use large cuvettes such as colorimeter cuvettes should keep an eye out for the release of this washer.
