MAGPIX Reagents

MAGPIX Reagents

The MAGPIX instrument requires drive fluid to serve as the delivery medium to transport the beads to the instrument’s optics. Due to the compact nature of the MAGPIX system, drive fluid is available in small pre-filled disposable containers which are stored within the instrument. Each drive fluid container provides enough fluid to read approximately ten plates of samples, and they are sold in packages of four. MAGPIX uses a calibration kit and a verification kit, each providing 25 uses.

  1. How can I deep-clean my Luminex MAGPIX?

    • The following protocol is from Luminex:

      Stringent Soak Routine - MAGPIX 
      Please perform a self-test and follow the steps below: 
      1. Go to Maintenance >> Cmds & Routines and run a Clean command with 0.1 N NaOH. After the sample is taken up in the chamber (after the probe comes back up from acquiring the reagent), press the stop button in the software, and then turn off the instrument (for 20 minutes or less, push the soft switch under the blue light). 
      2. If soaking overnight or over the weekend, turn off the instrument using the soft switch and power switch (back of instrument) after reagent acquisition. Also, power down xPONENT and the PC (to avoid connection issues when re-booting). 
      3. When soaking is complete, turn the instrument on first, then the PC, and allow connection to the software. 
      4. Run the Maintenance >> Cmds & Routines >> *Daily Fluidics Prep routine. 
      5. Run System Initialization for calibration and verification.

The experiment went great! The kit protocol was relatively easy to run, the values were around what I would expect, and the data was easy to analyze. Much easier than running separate ELISAs.
