The Luminex 200 is a flow-based reader. Using MILLIPLEX® MAP magnetic bead-based multianalyte panels and MILLIPLEX® Analyst 5.1 software, it can multiplex (analyze) up to 100 analytes rapidly and accurately, per well, of a 96-well plate containing 25 µL samples. It is useful to analyze biomarkers such as cellular metabolites, oxidative stress and stem cell markers, and biomarkers of cancer, cell signaling, endocrine and bone metabolism.

The Core provides individual training.
Trained users coordinate instrument use via the Scheduler.
Nanotechnology core facility equipment use is currently free for properly trained persons, with approval of the lab manager. However, a fee structure will be implemented long-term. This fee structure is expected to be similar to that of the other core labs on campus.
