Luminex 200 Total System


200 Total System

The total system includes the Luminex 200 instrument, the Luminex XY plate handling platform, and the Luminex SD sheath fluid delivery system, software and PC. A professional Training Session for one person is included.

Built on xMAP® technology, this system allows multiplexing of up to 100 analytes in a single well of a microtiter plate and is compatible with kits designed for the Luminex 100 instrument. Enhancements over the Luminex 100 instrument include tool-free sample probe height adjustment, an XYP alignment guide, and a high-performance compressor.

The Luminex System is a flexible analyzer based on the principles of flow cytometry that is designed to meet the needs of laboratory medicine and the care of patients, as well being used in the research environment. The system enables you to multiplex (simultaneously measure) up to 100 analytes in a single microplate well, using very small sample volumes. The system delivers fast and cost-effective bioassay results on many assay formats including nucleic acid assays, receptor-ligand assays, immunoassays and enzymatic assays.

The Luminex System is the combination of three core xMAP technologies. The first is xMAP microspheres, a family of 100 fluorescently dyed 5.6 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 analyzer, which integrates key xMAP detection components such as lasers, optics, advanced fluidics and high-speed digital signal processors. The third component is the IS 2.3 software, which is designed for template-based data acquisition with robust data regression analysis - ideal for the clinical laboratory setting.

The Luminex 200 System has a device master file (DMF) on file at the FDA, and kits developed by Luminex strategic partners that have received 510(k) clearance from the FDA can be used on the Luminex 200 system for diagnostic purposes.
