Luminex to Host MAGPIX Road Shows Throughout the U.S. and Europe

AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 28 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Luminex Corporation (Nasdaq: LMNX), today announced the initial dates and locations for the MAGPIX® road show, a multinational tour designed to showcase the recently-launched MAGPIX analytical instrument that is capable of performing up to 50 tests on a single sample and providing nearly 5,000 data points in under an hour.  The innovative format of the tour lets users interact directly with the system and each other to enhance the sharing of a broad set of applications.



"We are very excited to launch our MAGPIX road show series to allow researchers around the world to experience MAGPIX first hand," said Patrick J. Balthrop, president and chief executive officer of Luminex.  "This is an opportunity for scientists across many disciplines to see, in person, how MAGPIX easily allows them to harness the power of multiplexing and advance their research."

The MAGPIX road show events will feature a presentation from a MAGPIX user as well as an overview of the instrument and an explanatory animation of the technology.  EMD Millipore, the first distributor of the MAGPIX instrument worldwide, also will be on site for demonstrations and to answer questions at the U.S. events.

Based on Luminex's xMAP® Technology, the easy-to-use MAGPIX instrument is compact – comparable in size to a desktop computer – making it attractive to smaller and lower-volume laboratories and institutions with limited resources and bench space.  The instrument provides fast, accurate and easily reproducible results and can advance research across many disease states by bringing many types of multiplexing applications to scientists.  MAGPIX is easy to install out of the box and weighs less than 40 lbs., approximately 18 kg, making it simple and affordable to ship and deploy anywhere in the world.  The instrument was designed to meet the needs of scientists who have not been able to take advantage of the power of multiplexing because of resource or space limitations.
