The Luminex platform represents a powerful combination of Luminex xMAP instruments and multiplex assays designed for the detection and measurement of RNA and proteins.
Utilizing the xMAP bead-based technology, the Luminex multiplex assays enable the simultaneous detection and quantitation of up to 80 secreted proteins in a single well through Invitrogen ProcartaPlex assays. With a selection spanning over 600 cytokine, chemokine, growth factors, and other protein targets from various species including human, mouse, rat, non-human primate, canine and porcine, the assays are providing comprehensive insights across various biological research areas.
Furthermore, the versatility of this multiplex technology extends to gene expression analysis, as the combination with branched DNA (bDNA) technology enables the measurement of up to 80 gene targets using Invitrogen QuantiGene Plex assays. This unique capability facilitates the execution of multi-omics studies on a single validated instrument platform, as detailed in related publications. Notably, the results obtained through the Luminex system exhibit comparable accuracy and sensitivity to traditional assays like ELISA and qPCR, but with significantly enhanced efficiency and throughput.
These multiplex assays are available in various formats, including preconfigured panels, custom-blended Mix and Match panels and individual analytes for a 96- to 384-well plate format to provide the flexibility in high-throughput you need.
