MagPlex® Microspheres

MagPlex Microspheres

Magnetic microspheres offering improved washing efficiency and the ability to measure up to 500 targets simultaneously

MagPlex® Microspheres

 

Similar to MicroPlex® Microspheres, MagPlex® Microspheres are carboxylated polystyrene microparticles, or “beads,” that have been dyed into spectrally distinct sets, or “regions,” allowing them to be individually identified by an xMAP® instrument. These uniquely coded beads provide a user an addressable substrate on which to perform multiple bio-analytical reactions in a single well.

 

MagPlex Microspheres Compatible Regions

There are several advantages to MagPlex Microspheres over traditional MicroPlex Microspheres.

 

MagPlex Microspheres are magnetic, and with the use of a magnetic separator, they can be separated from solution quickly and easily. This improves percent recovery during handling and wash steps and facilitates assay automation.

 

Additionally, MagPlex Microspheres are available in 500 unique regions, enabling the development of assays which can measure up to 500 different analytes in the same well.

 

These beads are universally compatible with all xMAP Instruments. MagPlex Microspheres open the door to Luminex’s MAGPIX® instrument, which was designed as a simple and easy to use instrument with a smaller foot print.

 

All microspheres are general use components for further manufacture of xMAP bioassays.

 

MagPlex Microspheres are available at a concentration of 2.5 million and 12.5 million beads/mL and can be ordered in one mL and four mL vial sizes. MagPlex Microspheres are also offered in a variety of custom volumes. Please see the MagPlex Custom Volume Ordering Guidelines or contact Luminex to inquire about custom volume options.

 

IMPORTANT: MagPlex microspheres require the use of xPONENT® software.

Reagent Shipping Policy
All MagPlex Microsphere orders, one and four mL volumes, ship within three business days of order receipt. However, backordered items may have longer than normal lead times. MagPlex Microspheres have a maximum shelf life of five years from the date of manufacture and all MagPlex Microspheres are guaranteed to have a minimum remaining shelf life from the date they ship. Group A and B regions have a minimum shelf life of six months from the date of shipment and Group C regions have a minimum shelf life of three months from the ship date. Please see product part numbers below before placing your order, to see which regions are compatible with your instrument.

 

 

Part Numbers

 

To ensure maximum compatibility and availability, new assay developers should always begin with the Group A regions, moving into Group B then Group C regions only when necessary for higher-plex assays.

 

NOTE: Group C regions are only available in one mL vial sizes.
NOTE: Group C regions <100 have MC12XXX catalog numbers.
NOTE: [XXX] = region # >100

 

Vial Sizes:

[-YY] = [-01] for one mL;
[-04] for four mL; or
[-ID] for one mL Low Concentration
Please contact Luminex to inquire about custom vial sizes.
