How much does a Magpix cost?

The average price of a Luminex MAGPIX analyzer is $27,500, only half the price of a Luminex 200 analyzer.

How does Luminex 200 work?

Beads are read on a dual-laser flow-based detection instrument, such as the Luminex 200™ or FlexMap® analyzer. One laser classifies the bead and determines the analyte that is being detected. One LED identifies the analyte that is being detected and, the second LED determines the magnitude of the PE-derived signal.

Is Luminex an ELISA?

Enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) has long been the standard for quantitative analysis of metabolic hormones and cytokines. LUMINEX multiplex bead array assays were developed as cost- and time-effective alternatives to ELISA, but they are the only cost- and time-effective if they provide informative data.

What does Luminex measure?

A Luminex assay is a type of immunoassay that precisely measures multiple analytes in one sample. The Luminex® xMAP® technology is a bead-based immunoassay that allows for multiplex detection of up to 100 analytes simultaneously.

What is the difference between Luminex and ELISA?

Key differences between ELISA and LUMINEX assays are the use of different target capture systems and different reporter systems. LUMINEX assays capture targets onto spherical beads in suspension while ELISAs generally rely on flat surfaces in multi-well plates to capture targets.

What kind of a company is Luminex Corporation?

Luminex Corporation develops, manufactures, and markets biological testing technologies in the clinical diagnostic and life science industries.

What kind of testing is Luminex used for?

Luminex’s systems are used by clinical and research laboratories and are distributed through strategic partnerships with other life sciences firms. Luminex also develops testing assays and disposable testing supplies for the clinical diagnostics market.

How does Luminex Multi-Analyte Profiling technology work?

Its xMAP (Multi-Analyte Profiling) technology allows simultaneous analysis of up to 500 bioassays, or tests, from a single drop of fluid. xMAP consists of instruments, software, and disposable microspheres (microscopic polystyrene beads on which tests are performed).
