The Luminex® 100/200™ System is a flexible analyzer based on the principles of flow cytometry.
Luminex 100/200 sets the standard for multiplexing, with over 11,000 units sold globally and more than fifty 510(k)-cleared assays. The ability to perform up to 100 different tests in a single reaction volume and use either magnetic beads or plain polystyrene beads makes this instrument a popular choice for laboratories needing greater flexibility.
Luminex 100/200 offers higher sample throughput with a 96-well plate read time of only 45 minutes.
The Luminex 100/200 System is the combination of three core xMAP® Technologies. The first is xMAP microspheres, a family of fluorescently dyed micron-sized polystyrene microspheres that act as both the identifier and the solid surface to build the assay. The second is a flow cytometry-based instrument, the Luminex 100/200 analyzer, which integrates key xMAP detection components, such as lasers, optics, fluidics, and high-speed digital signal processors. The third component is the xPONENT® software, which is designed for protocol-based data acquisition with robust data regression analysis.
