- What is the Luminex assay platform?
- How do I set up the Luminex instrument?
- Why should I consider switching from ELISA technology to multiplexing?
- Can I combine Multiplex Luminex assays for higher-level multiplexing?
- I am planning to use the Luminex Panel Configurator and Selection Tool to order a custom panel. How do I know if my list of targets can be multiplexed in a ProcartaPlex assay?
- My filter plate is leaking. What should I do?
- My filter plate has clogged wells. Do you have any suggestions?
- The readout for my samples says that they are above the detectable limit. What should I do?
- Can a finished ProcartaPlex plate be read multiple times on the Luminex instrument without a significant signal loss of signal?
- I want to run half a plate at a time for my ProcartaPlex assay, can I use the same plate again? Can I purchase more plates?

Our custom multiplex assays based on Luminex xMAP (multi-analyte profiling) technology enable simultaneous detection and quantitation of multiple secreted proteins (cytokines, chemokines, growth factors, etc.), RNA, or DNA. Each custom panel is designed for use with Luminex instrumentation, including MAGPIX, 100/200, and FLEXMAP 3D systems.
If your Luminex instrument needs attention or you require technical assistance with your Luminex assays or xPONENT software for data acquisition and analysis, contact our team of Technical Support Scientists or Field Application Scientists.
Our custom ProcartaPlex immunoassays, based on Luminex xMAP technology, maximize flexibility in experimental design, permitting the quantitation of one or multiple targeted proteins in unique panels designed by the researcher. For your convenience, each customized panel comes with reagents that are blended, optimized, tested, and designed for use with the Luminex 100/200, FLEXMAP 3D, and/or MAGPIX systems.
