Multiplexing Solution for Proteins and Nucleic Acids
The Luminex® 100/200™ System is a flexible analyzer based on the principles of flow cytometry. The system enables you to multiplex (simultaneously measure) up to 100 analytes in a single microplate well, using very small samples. The system delivers fast and cost-effective bioassay results on many assay formats including nucleic acid assays, receptor-ligand assays, immunoassays, and enzymatic assays.
The Luminex 100/200 System is the combination of three core xMAP® Technologies.
The first is xMAP microspheres, a family of fluorescently dyed micron-sized polystyrene microspheres that act as both the identifier and the solid surface to build the assay.
The second is a flow cytometry-based instrument, the Luminex 100/200 analyzer, which integrates key xMAP detection components, such as lasers, optics, fluidics, and high-speed digital signal processors.
The third component is the xPONENT® software, which is designed for protocol-based data acquisition with robust data regression analysis.
