The Bio-Plex Suspension Array System allows you to quantitate up to 100 different analytes in a single sample: this is called a "multiplex analysis". This analysis has to be performed on the Bio-Rad Luminex 100. In general, it is usefull to have a discussion before the beginning of the experiment, to ensure a proper preparation of the samples. The use of the Bio-Rad Luminex 100 is scheduled on the GIGA intranet.
Raw data and/or data analysed with the Bio-Plex Manager Software have to be saved and exported by the costumer. A printer is also available to print the data out. Long term storage is not performed by the facility and has to be done by the costumer himself.
