Luminex Delivers 5,000th Instrument

Luminex Corporation has recently delivered its 5,000th instrument to Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan. Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak, will use the Luminex(R) 200(TM) instrument to perform the FDA-cleared Luminex xTAG(TM) Respiratory Viral Panel (RVP) to assist doctors in diagnosing respiratory infections quickly.

The Luminex analyzer is a unique instrument that can be used across the continuum of science and healthcare - from basic research to clinical diagnostics. The instrument can be found in pharmaceutical and academic research laboratories, clinical reference laboratories and hospitals of all sizes.

Luminex instruments are flexible analyzers based on the principles of three-dimensional bead arrays. Due to the enhanced liquid kinetics of the microspheres in solution, these arrays offer superior uniformity and faster reaction times than standard two-dimensional planar arrays.

Proprietary xMAP Technology from Luminex also provides the laboratory the power of multiplexing and the ability to produce superior results in much less time than traditional methods like ELISA or real-time PCR.

Luminex develops and manufactures state-of-the-art assay products, and licenses its instruments and bead-based xMAP technology to market-leading companies in clinical diagnostics and biological research. Assays from Luminex and its partners deliver fast and cost-effective results for nucleic acid assays, receptor-ligand assays, immunoassays and enzymatic assays.
