The Luminex xMAP® technology is a multiplex detection system that uses color-coded paramagnetic microspheres. Specific antibodies are bound to these paramagnetic microspheres and viral or bacterial plant pathogens will bind to these labeled beads.
The presence of the pathogens is visualized with fluorescent labeled secondary antibodies and a compact laser based analyzer. The technology allows cost effective multiplex detection of up to one hundred targets simultaneously.
