About xTAG Technology Products
Luminex xTAG Technology products provide accurate, flexible, low cost microarrays. They combine any set of 100 single DNA tests and multiplex them simultaneously in a single reaction. xTAG products are conducted on the Luminex xMAP system, which uses lasers to read color-coded microspheres that attach to specific nucleic acid sequences. xTAG was formerly known as TAG-IT from Tm Bioscience.
