Luminex Assays: Products Overview

Luminex® Assays

Luminex assays are based on xMAP® technology (multi-analyte profiling beads) enabling the detection and quantitation of multiple RNA, DNA or protein targets simultaneously. The Luminex xMAP system combines a flow cytometer, fluorescent-dyed microspheres (beads), lasers and digital signal processing to effectively allow multiplexing of up to 100 unique assays within a single sample.

Affymetrix provides the largest number of Luminex Assays for RNA, DNA and protein and has an aggressive program for the development of new assays for the Luminex platform.
