Luminex Instrumentation

Luminex has a portfolio of instruments designed to meet your varied needs.

Multiplexing Solutions for Proteins and Nucleic Acids

Complete family of multiplexing solutions: MAGPIX®, Luminex® 100/200, FLEXMAP 3D®

 

The MAGPIX system performs up to 50 tests with a single reaction volume and supports both single and multiplex assay analysis of proteins and nucleic acids

  • Affordability: Benefit from an affordable multiplexing solution that costs up to 4x less than comparable ELISA assays.
  • Efficiency: Measure up to 50 targets in a single well and analyze both proteins and nucleic acids.
  • Compact size: Reduce lab clutter with a smaller, more compact instrument that requires less than three feet of linear bench space.
