Great results, does not waste your time!
Application Area: Protein and nucleic acids
"Accurate and reliable for multiplexing assays. You can use the Luminex platform for nucleic acids and protein research."
xMAP® Technology uses color-coded microspheres to detect up to 500 protien or oligonucleotide analytes from a single aliquot of sample in a single reaction well, enabling you to generate more data while saving sample, time, and reagents. Depending on your targets and the application, there are five different microsphere types to select from to produce the best experimental results.
MagPlex® are magnetic carboxylated polystyrene microspheres that have been dyed into 500 spectrally distinct sets or “regions”, allowing them to be individually identified by an xMAP instrument. In the multiplex assay environment, the microspheres act as both the surface for the solution phase assay and the spectral identifier that the instrument detects. The open architecture of xMAP Technology enables users to build custom multiplex assays or select from a broad menu commercially available kits.
MagPlex are the most versatile xMAP microspheres and are:
