The Luminex FlexMap3D system allows protein and genomic multiplex beadarray assays of up to 500 analytes/well.
It is compatible with 96 and 384 well plate formats and offers faster turnaround time and easier maintenance than the previous Luminex 100/200 instruments, but is compatible with the kits and reagents for these systems. The FlexMap3D operates on Xponent 4.0 software.
The Luminex analyser is available 24/7 for use directly by investigators except during maintenance and repair periods.
Before an investigator can book and use the equipment, they must attend training and register with iLabs (PDF 235Kb).
