Luminex develops, manufactures, and markets xMAP® and xTAG® Technologies with application throughout the diagnostic and life science research fields. It provides open-architecture with a color-coded beads known as microspheres to enable large number of biological tests (bioassays) to be conducted and analyzed quickly, cost-effectively, and accurately.
Infectious Disease - for respiratory, gastrointestinal testing, and women's health
- Respiratory Disease
Qualitative nucleic acid multiplex tests that simultaneously detect and identify multiple respiratory viruses with a single sample using the xTAG® Respiratory Viral Panel.
- Gastrointestinal Disease
Simultaneously test for >90% of the bacteria, Viruses, and parasited which cause gastroenteritis - all in the same day with a single testing using the xTAG® Gastrointestinal Pathogen Panel.
- Women's Health
MultiCode®-RTx products offer real-time PCR detection of HSV-1 and HSV-2, with higher sensitivity and same day results using the MultiCode®-RTx HSV 1&2 Kit.
Genetics - IVD cleared genetic tests for inherited diseases and solution can assist with personalizing drug therapy management through pharmacogenetic testing
Analyzes how an individual's genetic makeup affects his or her response to drugs. Accurate prediction about drug response is crucial for personalized therapy. It can help improve effectiveness of the drug, decrease chance of adverse side effects and save healthcare costs.
- xTAG® Cystic Fibrosis
CF is a hereditary multi-system disease. There are thousands of people living with CF worldwide. Early detection and informed decision-making are the key to improve quality of life.
Clinical Research - Wide range of research assays cover both pathogen characterization and mutation identification
- xTAG® Respiratory Viral Panel FAST v2
Qualitative nucleic acid multiplex assays that simultaneously detect multiple respiratory viruses with a single sample.
- NxTAG™ Respiratory Pathogen Panel
The next generation closed-tube, molecular assay with comprehensive coverage designed to improve the laboratory workflow.
- Pharmacogenetics Research
To further understand the relation between genetic variation and response to drugs. xTAG® Technology allows the possibility of assessing an individual's specific genetic variation in select CYP genes.

Instruments - Various model of instruments for multiplexing solutions for proteins and nucleic acids
MAGPIX® is the simplest, most affordable, and most compact of Luminex’s xMAP® instruments. This compact multiplexing unit performs up to 50 different tests in a single reaction volume and reads a 96-well-plate in just 60 minutes. MAGPIX features self-cleaning routines and magnetic bead compatibility (with MagPlex® beads), making the instrument easy to learn and easy to use. MAGPIX can be ordered with a laptop PC instead of a desktop PC.
The total system includes the Luminex® 100/200™ analyzer, 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 also included. Built on xMAP® Technology, this system allows multiplexing of up to 100 analytes in a single well of a microtiter plate.
- FLEXMAP 3D
The FLEXMAP 3D® is Luminex’s most advanced and versatile multiplexing platform. Fast read time, compatibility with both 96- and 384-well plates, and ease of integration with front-end automation systems make the FLEXMAP 3D1 the platform of choice for high throughput applications. The platform uses both magnetic and non-magnetic microspheres and is capable of simultaneously measuring up to 500 genes or proteins from a small sample. Automated start-up, shutdown, and maintenance routines make the FLEXMAP 3D easy to use and maintain.
