Research and Applied Markets Instrument Reagents

Necessary reagents for the daily maintenance and operation of your xMAP® instrument

Depending on which xMAP® instrument you own, you will need a few ancillary reagents to make sure your instrument functions appropriately.

MAGPIX® Reagents

 

The MAGPIX® instrument requires Drive Fluid to serve as the delivery medium to transport the sample to the instrument’s optics.

 

Due to the compact nature of the MAGPIX system, Drive Fluid is available in small pre-filled disposable containers which are stored onboard the instrument. Each Drive Fluid container provides enough fluid to read approximately ten plates of samples, and they are sold in packages of four.

 

All xMAP® instruments require regular calibration and performance verification testing to ensure the system is operating correctly and to maintain data accuracy. MAGPIX uses a unique calibration kit and verification kit, each providing 25 uses.

Luminex® 100/200™ Reagents

 

Luminex® 100/200™ instruments require Sheath Fluid to serve as the delivery medium to transport the sample to the instrument’s optics.

 

Both instruments have the option of a 20 L disposable external sheath fluid container or a compact 20X sheath fluid concentrate pack, which can be reconstituted to a 20 L working concentration.

 

Apart from the significantly reduced storage space required, the concentrate pack can save the user considerable shipping costs; upwards of 80% savings, in some cases.

 

All xMAP® instruments require regular calibration and performance verification testing to ensure the system is operating correctly and to maintain data accuracy. The Luminex 100/200 instruments, operating on xPONENT® software, are calibrated using a calibration and a verification kit, each providing 25 uses.

 

Luminex 100/200 systems running on the older IS 2.3 software require the purchase of individual vials of calibration and control microspheres.
