Luminex Magpix instrument

Luminex MAGPIX

MAGPIX is the simplest, most affordable, and most portable of Luminex's xMAP instruments. Its self-cleaning routines and magnetic bead compatibility (with MagPlex beads) make MAGPIX extremely easy to learn and use.

• Multiplexing: up to 50 analytes per sample volume
• Sensitivity: single-digit picogram levels of protein
• Dynamic Range (Typical): >3.5 logs
• Read Time: 96-well plate in ≤ 60 min (up to 4,800 tests/hour)
• Daily Start-Up/Shut-Down: ≤ 15 min
• Foot Print: 3 ft linear bench space

MAGPIX Reagents

The MAGPIX instrument requires drive fluid to serve as the delivery medium to transport the beads to the instrument’s optics. Due to the compact nature of the MAGPIX system, drive fluid is available in small pre-filled disposable containers which are stored within the instrument. Each drive fluid container provides enough fluid to read approximately ten plates of samples, and they are sold in packages of four. MAGPIX uses a calibration kit and a verification kit, each providing 25 uses.

Luminex LX200 instrument

Luminex 200

The Luminex 200 sets the standard for multiplexing. This instrument is a popular choice for laboratories needing greater flexibility.

• Multiplexing: Up to 100 analytes per sample volume (80 on MagPlex microspheres)
• Dynamic Range (Typical): >3.5 logs
• Read Time: 96-well plate in ≤ 45 min (up to 12,800 tests/hour)
• Daily Start-Up/Shut-Down: ≤ 30 min

Luminex 200 Reagents

The Luminex 200 instruments require sheath fluid to serve as the delivery medium to transport the beads to the instrument’s optics. The instrument has the option of a 20L disposable external sheath fluid container or a compact 20X sheath fluid concentrate pack; which can be reconstituted, with water, to a working volume of 20L when needed. The Luminex 100/200 instruments, operating on xPONENT software, are calibrated using a calibration and a verification kit, each providing 25 uses.

Luminex Flexmap 3D instrument

FLEXMAP 3D

The FLEXMAP 3D is Luminex's most advanced and versatile multiplexing platform. Fast read time, compatibility with 96- and 384-well plates, and ease of integration with front-end automation systems make the FLEXMAP 3D the platform of choice for high-throughput applications.

• Multiplexing: Up to 500 analytes in a single sample volume
• Dynamic Range (Typical): >4.5 logs
• Read Time: 96-well plate in ≤ 20 min (up to 144,000 tests/hour);
   384-well plate in ≤ 75 min (up to 153,600 tests/hour)
• Daily Start-Up/Shut-Down: ≤ 30 min
