Bead-based multiplex arrays are commonly used for the detection of various biomarkers and proteins. This technique uses microsphere beads, coated with monoclonal antibodies against specific proteins, to simultaneously measure multiple analyte concentrations within a single small volume sample in various sample types.

The Bio-Plex Pro Wash Station eliminates manual wash steps from Bio-Plex Assays, making them as easy as ELISAs. The wash station is specifically designed to perform Bio-Plex Assay wash steps, but it is also compatible with any standard xMAP assay.
Features and Benefits of the Bio-Plex Pro Wash Station
Improved lab productivity
Reliable and reproducible results
Optimized on-board protocols
The Bio-Plex Pro Wash Station incorporates a magnetic plate carrier for reliable, hands-free wash steps on magnetic bead-based assays (Bio-Plex Pro and MagPlex Assays).
Preset wash programs have been optimized for Bio-Plex Assays. Using the Bio-Plex Pro Wash Station in an assay workflow reduces manual intervention and decreases variability between independent experiments.
The next generation multiplexing platform based on xMAP technology. Expanded multiplexing capability, faster time to results, and automation capability make it the platform of choice for high-throughput testing for nucleic acid and protein applications.
Measure up to 500 unique analytes in a single sample
96- and 384-well plate capability
Plate read times twice as fast as the Bio-Plex/Luminex 200 system
Compatible with the magnetic and nonmagnetic assays
Bio-Plex Manager™ software version 6.0 for data analysis"
Used for sequential multiplex analysis.

Full-service analysis: researchers provide a list of desired biomarkers to study. The Core will provide the best configuration of panels commercially available to analyze the maximum number of desired markers. Core will provide a quote for services. Researcher sends samples to the Forsyth Institute for temperature-controlled storage until time of analysis. The Core orders and receives all kits and materials necessary for analysis. Analysis is performed entirely by Core personnel and data is exported and provided as an excel spreadsheet with desired data sets. No statistical data analysis is performed. Minor data organization can be performed by the Core upon request.
Researcher purchases panels needed for analysis, performs sample and kit preparations, simply brings the finished plate to the Forsyth Institute to be read on our equipment by Core personnel. Consultation for panel configuration can be performed by Core personnel upon request. Data is exported and provided as an excel spreadsheet with desired data sets. No statistical data analysis is performed. Minor data organization can be performed by the Core upon request.
