Overview

Manufacturer: Bio-Rad, Bio-Plex 200 System. Installed 4.

Bio-Plex 200 System is a suspension multiplexing array fluoresence reader that allows to measure up to 100 biomolecule of protein or nucleic acid in a single sample.
The Main System Components include:
Array reader — combines 2 lasers, high-throughput fluidics, and real-time digital signal processing to distinguish up to 100 different color-coded bead sets, each representing a different assay
Microplate platform — automates the reading of 96-well plates, yielding up to 9,600 data points in about 35 min
Calibration and validation kits; Bio-Plex Manager™ software; Bio-Plex® SNP Manager™ data analysis utility

Funding sources: Institutional

Benefits of the Bio-Plex 200 System

1. Same time: Unlike single-target assays, multiplex assays enable researchers to profile multiple analytes simultaneously
2. Save time: Multiplex assays are also faster (because multiple analytes are being analyzed in parallel)
3. Same sample volume: assaying multile analytes in a single sample volume

Technical features and specifications
