Agenda xMAP® Luminex Learning Sessions

Instrument & software training courses

These one-day course covers routine instrument use, as well as maintenance and troubleshooting exercises, including understanding calibration and verification reports. Software instruction will include building protocols and batches, running batches, and performing data analysis. These training courses will be planned and organized if at least four participants sign up for a specific training. Options include:

  • MAGPIX® with xPONENT® (CN-0248-01)
  • Luminex® 200™ (CN-0211-01)
  • FLEXMAP 3D® (CN-0311-01)
  • xMAP INTELLIFLEX® (CN-0504-01)

Assay Development Classroom Trainings

Fundamentals of xMAP® Proteomic Assays (CN-0488-01)

This two-day course covers skills for developing application-specific immunoassays on the xMAP® platform. The practical session consists of coupling capture antibodies or antigen to paramagnetic MagPlex® Microspheres (using the two-step carbodiimide coupling method), determining bead recovery, running a coupling confirmation assay, and performing a cross-reactivity test. The capture sandwich immunoassay for antibody coupling and running an indirect immunoassay for antigen coupling will also be discussed. An in-house assay will be used for this course.

The theoretical session will cover methods for coupling antibodies or different molecules (e.g., antigens, peptides, small molecules, etc.) to Luminex microspheres, as well as developing different assay formats (e.g., indirect detection, or the serology assay, and the competitive inhibition immunoassay). It will also provide guidance on identifying components of antibody structure, the capture sandwich immunoassay format, technical tips, assay development best practices, and advice on buffers and consumables. The course includes troubleshooting coupling and assay development.

Fundamentals of xMAP® Nucleic Acid Assays (CN-0489-01)

This two-day course covers skills for developing application-specific nucleic acid assays on the xMAP® platform. The practical session consists of coupling amino-modified oligonucleotides to paramagnetic MagPlex® Microspheres, determining bead recovery, running a coupling confirmation assay, and running a multiplex direct DNA hybridization assay. An in-house assay will be used for the practical part of the course.

The theoretical session will provide detailed information on developing MagPlex-TAG™-based assays. Different assays formats will be covered (e.g., allele- and target-specific primer extension (ASPE/TSPE), the oligo-ligation Assay (OLA), and ligation-dependent amplification (LDA)). You will learn how to determine which application is best suited for your specific needs, as well as how to troubleshoot assays. You will also receive tips on probe and primer design and advice on buffers and consumables.
