MAGPIX is an instrument that allows simultaneously, detecting and quantifying multiple proteins in a single biological sample. With this magnetic bead-based system it is possible to measure up to 50 analytes in 25 µL of sample.
If you have any questions, please contact the FCF staff.
Unlike flow cytometry, the MAGPIX instrument flows beads with significantly less fluid volume into a chamber. There they are held in a monolayer with a magnet. LEDs are focused on the chamber to illuminate the beads, which are imaged using a CCD camera. Image processing algorithms are then run to deliver the assay results.
