xMAP: Technology to Bridge Genomic and Protein Assays

Luminex xMAP technology is a powerful cell biology platform combining microsphere-based technology and flow cytometric analysis. It’s a total package for profiling multiple biomolecules from a single sample. Luminex applications have evolved from predominantly protein-based assays to include multiplexed profiling of gene expression, transcription factors, and microRNA. Endusers are now able to use xMAP technology in many aspects of their projects and everyday workflow of experiments. Off-the-shelf kits are available from different vendors, or users have the ability to create custom or homebrew assays in their laboratory.
