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.
