xTAG

The Luminex xTAG technology is a proprietary tagging platform used to develop nucleic acid assays. xTAG diagnostic assays run on Luminex equipment are low-cost, accurate, and allow multiplexing in a single reaction, according to the company.

There are now xTAG assays for cystic fibrosis, respiratory viruses, gastrointestinal pathogens, CYP2D6 polymorphisms, and CYP2C19 variants. 

In 2010, the xTAG Respiratory Viral Panel received the Prix Galien "Best Medical Technology" award.
