xPONENT® software solutions offers:
Modular and Flexible
Designed for ease-of-use, xPONENT® software allows the novice or occasional user and advanced user alike, to set up and run an assay in a minimal amount of time.
The default graphical user interface follows the typical assay workflow, but can be customized to meet the needs of each specific laboratory.
Powerful Data Analysis
Industry standard curve fitting models for quantitative analysis, allelic ratios for genotyping, and qualitative algorithms for immunology assays in addition to data visualization tools.
Software configurations xPONENT® software is available with three levels of accessibility:
|Basic—The basic xPONENT® software package allows the user to acquire samples, perform analysis, and run system maintenance routines and remote web monitoring. This package includes the ability to calculate allelic ratios for analyzing and/or normalizing genotyping data.
|Secure—The secure xPONENT® package includes all the basic functionality, plus allows an administrator to set up user access levels.
|21 CFR Part 11—For laboratories working under the FDA’s 21 CFR Part 11 regulations, xPONENT® offers multilevel user management, full audit trail, electronic records, and electronic signatures.
Additional Licensable Modules
The automation module along with a device driver enables communication between the reader and a front end automation platform. Luminex® device drivers are offered by many automation providers.
This module allows communication with an external Laboratory Information System (LIS) database by allowing the export of patient result data and the import of patient sample information in ASTM format. Connection to your LIS system may require the use of middleware.
