Luminex Corporation is engaged in the development, manufacture, and sale of proprietary biological testing technologies and products with applications throughout the diagnostics and life sciences industries. The company’s xMAP (Multi-Analyte Profiling) technology, an open architecture, multiplexing technology, allows simultaneous analysis of up to 500 bioassays from a small sample volume, typically a single drop of fluid, by reading biological tests on the surface of microscopic polystyrene beads called microspheres. xMAP technology combines this miniaturized liquid array bioassay capability with small lasers, light emitting diodes (LEDs), digital signal processors, photo detectors, charge-coupled device imaging and proprietary software to create a system. Products Instruments Luminex LX 100/200 (LX Systems): The LX Systems are compact analyzers that integrate fluidics, optics and digital signal processing to perform up to 100 bioassays simultaneously in a single tube or well of a microtiter plate using only a small amount of sample. By combining semiconductor lasers with digital signal processors and microcontrollers, these systems perform rapid, multi-analyte profiles under the control of a Windows-based personal computer and the company’s proprietary software. FLEXMAP 3D: The FLEXMAP 3D system is intended for use as a general laboratory instrument in markets, including life science research and diagnostics. This device can simultaneously measure up to 500 analytes from a single sample and offers increased speed and enhanced ease-of-use and serviceability. Like the company’s LX Systems, the FLEXMAP 3D system combines semiconductor lasers with digital signal processors and microcontrollers and these systems perform rapid, multi-analyte profiles under the control of a Windows-based personal computer and the company’s proprietary software. MAGPIX: The MAGPIX system is a multiplexing analyzer capable of performing qualitative and quantitative analysis of proteins and nucleic acids in various sample matrices. This system is Luminex’s newest instrument and can perform up to 50 tests in a single reaction volume, reducing sample input, reagents and labor while improving productivity. MAGPIX is based on a detection mechanism that uses LEDs and a charge-coupled device imaging system, rather than the lasers and detection mechanisms used in the company’s flow cytometry-based instruments. Consumables MicroPlex Microspheres: The company’s xMAP systems use polystyrene microspheres that are approximately 5.6 microns in diameter. The company dyes the microspheres in sets with varying intensities of a red and a near infrared dye to achieve approximately 100 distinct color sets. Each microsphere can carry the reagents of an enzymatic, genetic or immunologic bioassay. MagPlex Microspheres: These microspheres feature super-paramagnetic properties that make them ideal for running automated xMAP-based assays. The company dyes the microspheres in sets with varying intensities of a red and a near infrared dye to achieve up to 500 distinct color sets. These microspheres can be moved or held in place by a magnetic field. Many automated systems utilize magnetic properties to automate the performance of the assay. Automating sample testing using MagPlex microspheres on a robotic sample preparation system decreases hands-on technician time, improves precision, and streamlines workflow. xTAG Microspheres: These dyed microspheres are linked to a set of 100 proprietary nucleic acid capture sequences providing a universal array for DNA and RNA work. They are designed for conducting genotyping and other nucleic acid-based experiments in the life sciences markets. When used in conjunction with the company’s Luminex systems, the xTAG microspheres are designed to simplify the genotyping assay development process and increase assay flexibility. SeroMAP Microspheres: These 100 distinct sets of microspheres are designed for specific protein based serological applications. Certain Luminex partners use this product for enhanced sensitivity in serum-based assays. Calibration and Control Microspheres: Calibration microspheres a
