Getting Started with xMAP Technology
Luminex’s #xMAP® Technology enables the evaluation up to 500 analytes simultaneously in a single well, known as #multiplexing. Start multiplexing today to generate more data while saving sample, time, and reagents in your protein- or nucleic acid-based assays.
The Open-architecture xMAP Technology enables multiplexing of biological tests (assays), reducing time, labor, and costs over traditional methods such as ELISA, western blotting, PCR, and traditional arrays. Systems using xMAP Technology perform discrete assays on the surface of color coded beads known as microspheres, which are then read in a compact analyzer. Using multiple lasers or LEDs and high-speed digital-signal processors, the analyzer reads multiplex assay results by reporting the reactions occurring on each individual microsphere.
