Date:4/27/2012

AUSTIN, Texas, April 26, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Luminex Corporation (NASDAQ: LMNX) announced today that it has received CE marking of both the xMAP NeoPlex4 Assay and NeoPlex® System.  This unique system revolutionizes the way newborn screening is performed, providing four assays from one blood spot punch, reducing sample requirements and improving laboratory efficiency.

Millions of infants have blood drawn from their heel after birth to detect rare disorders that could threaten their life and long-term health.  For most of these disorders, there is no medical history of the condition in the family and no way to predict the health of a baby based on the health of the parents. Early screening, diagnosis and proper treatment can decrease newborn morbidity, mortality and improve the infant's quality of life and life expectancy. 

"Launch of the NeoPlex4 Assay and NeoPlex System in Europe represents a significant milestone and complements our portfolio of blood spot automation products currently used in most newborn screening laboratories," said Patrick J. Balthrop, president and chief executive officer of Luminex.  "The ability to provide more data with less sample saves precious time and resources for clinical lab professionals and allows affected infants to be identified more quickly.  We are pleased to provide new approaches to protecting the lives of newborns as part of our mission to advance healthcare worldwide." 

The NeoPlex4 Assay simultaneously tests four analytes, T4, TSH, 17OHP and total IRT which can be indicators of congenital hypothyroidism (CH), congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH), and cystic fibrosis (CF phenotypic). Ea
