How many reporter dyes can be used in the same analysis using the LiquiChip Workstation?
Only one reporter dye can be used, because only a single laser (green reporter laser) is available to read the reporter signal using the LiquiChip Workstation. However, since multiplexing is not done via the reporter dye, but instead by using different color-coded beads identified by a red classification laser, multiplexing on this instrument is possible. QIAGEN supplies Kits performing 10-plexes for the LiquiChip System. In theory, a 100-plex is possible using this system.
