    Description

    The Luminex 200 instrument is a flexible bead array system for multiplexing up to 100 analytes per well.

    The technology allows detection of soluble proteins from serum, cell supernatant and tissue homogenates, as well as oligonucleotides. Applications include the detection of cytokines (replacing conventional enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay), nucleic acid assays, serology isotyping and enzyme-ligand research. Samples are run in 96-well plates with sample volumes as low as 25┬Ál. The Luminex software is able to create standard curves using a number of fitting methods and automatically calculate analyte concentrations.
