The Luminex system binds different chemical ligands to different colour microspheres, thereby enabling the researcher to multiplex (simultaneously measure) up to 100 analytes in a singlemicroplate well, using very small sample volumes. The system delivers fast quantitative and cost-effective bio-assy results to may assay formats. This instrument is the combination of three core technologies:
xMAP microsperes, a family of 100 fluorecently dyed 5.6 micronsized polystyrene microspheres that act as both the identifier and the solid surface to build the assay.
Flow of cytometry -based instrument, the Luminex analyzer, which integrates key xMAP detection components such as lasers, optics, advanced fluidics and high speed digital processors.
IS 2.3 software, which is designed for template-based data acquisition with robust data regression analysis - ideal for the clinical laboratory setting.
