xPONENT® is a modular, flexible software package for control of the MAGPIX®, Luminex® 100/200™, and FLEXMAP 3D®. The software’s graphical user interface follows the typical assay workflow, but can be customized to meet the needs of a specific laboratory. Navigation wizards and automated routine operations such as startup, shutdown, calibration, and performance verification further enhance system usability and result in increased walk-away time.
Designed for ease-of-use, xPONENT software allows all types of users—novice, occasional, and advanced—to set up and run an assay in a minimal amount of time.
xPONENT’s graphical user interface follows the typical assay workflow but can be customized to meet the needs of the specific laboratory. Use of navigation wizards and automation of routine operations such as startup, shutdown, calibration, and performance verification further enhance system usability and result in increased walk-away time. xPONENT software also enables the use of automation-friendly magnetic MagPlex® microspheres for increased workflow efficiency.
xPONENT offers industry standard curve fitting models for quantitative analysis, allelic ratios for genotyping, and qualitative algorithms for immunology assays as well as data visualization tools. The software can also be configured to automatically launch third party data analysis programs for advanced statistical data analysis.

xPONENT software is available with three levels of accessibility:
The basic xPONENT software package allows the user to acquire samples, perform analysis, and run system maintenance routines and remote web monitoring. This package includes the ability to calculate allelic ratios to analyze and/or normalize genotyping data.
The secure xPONENT package includes all the basic functionality, plus allows an administrator to set up user access levels.
For laboratories working under the FDA’s 21 CFR Part 11 regulations, xPONENT offers multilevel user management, full audit trail, electronic records, and electronic signatures.
The automation module along with a device driver enables communication between the reader and a front end automation platform. Luminex device drivers are offered by many automation providers. For more information on available drivers, please contact Luminex Technical Support.
This module allows communication with an external Laboratory Information System (LIS) database by allowing the export of patient result data and the import of patient sample information in ASTM format. Connection to your LIS system may require the use of middleware. For more information on middleware solutions please contact Luminex Technical Support.
