This long-term agreement strengthens the partnership and facilitates development of life science and protein assays.

"We are very pleased to extend our global supply and distribution agreement with EMD Millipore, a leader in life science and protein research," said Michael F. Pintek, senior vice president of operations at Luminex. "EMD Millipore's broad selection of protein biomarkers in diverse research areas such as cancer, cell signaling, cellular metabolism, and immunology reflects their leadership in the life science research market. Together we can accelerate the pace of research and advance healthcare for people around the world."

As part of the agreement, EMD Millipore will continue to offer the full range of Luminex's xMAP® systems, including MAGPIX®, Luminex® 100/200™, and FLEXMAP 3D®. Luminex Technology is widely supported and validated across both clinical and life science research markets, with cumulative shipments to date nearing 10,000 total instruments and over 16,000 publications across a broad spectrum of applications.
 
"EMD Millipore is committed to continue bringing to researchers the largest selection of assays and analytes for Luminex's instrument portfolio," said John Sweeney, head of life sciences business at EMD Millipore. "This renewal of our partnership with Luminex ensures that EMD Millipore can provide customers with a complete solution for multiplexed protein detection-encompassing assay kits, instruments, software and services-that will support them over the years."

EMD Millipore, a leader in multiplex assay kit development, has continued to push into emerging areas of research and recently announced the availability of MILLIPLEX® MAP human stem cell pluripotency kits and MILLIPLEX® MAP kits for cellular metabolism. Compared with traditional biomarker detection techniques such as western blots, these new kits increase assay throughput and specificity. Additionally, EMD Millipore recently released the newest version of their best-in-class multiplex data analysis package, MILLIPLEX® Analyst 5.1 software-one of the most robust data analysis tools available today for Luminex® platform-based multiplexed immunoassays.
