The BeadXpress system for research and clinical development applications has been launched by Illumina Inc. Using proprietary VeraCode digital microbead technology, it provides high-quality data, broad multiplexing capability and assay flexibility. Its two-color laser detection capability is suited for low- to midmultiplex experiments. Assays of tens to hundreds of analytes can be performed in a single sample at one time. Applications include biomarker research and validation, pharmaceutical development, industrial testing, agriculture, clinical research, and development of molecular diagnostic assays.
