Hitachi Solutions America, Ltd. (HISAL) will discontinue MasterPlex CT v1.0 and v1.2, control software for the LX100/200 instrument manufactured by Luminex Corp., on July 5th, 2011. Due to the changing market conditions, we feel this change will best serve our customers in the long run.
Please note HISAL is NOT discontinuing MasterPlex QT (v3.0 and higher), MasterPlex EX (v1.0 and higher) and MasterPlex GT v2.3. These analysis packages for the Luminex/Bio-Plex/MSD platforms will continue to be developed, supported and sold since they are independent of the platform.
Current users of the above mentioned versions of MasterPlex CT will be able to continue to use these products and receive technical support from the MiraiBio Group of HISAL until December 31st, 2011. After December 31st, 2011 HISAL will terminate public and technical support for all versions of MasterPlex CT. Users can still use MasterPlex CT after that date and existing support documents and content will continue to be available on the MiraiBio Group website.
What are my options if I want to continue to use the Luminex 100/200 platform?
1) Continue to use MasterPlex CT – MasterPlex CT is still a viable option for Luminex 100/200 instrument control and even supports Luminex’s latest version of magnetic microspheres. HISAL will continue to support MasterPlex CT until December, 31st 2011.
2) Convert your LX100/200 control software to xPONENT v3.1 – Luminex Corp. has its own current version of control software that includes an Automated Maintenance Plate and will be fully supported by Luminex Corp. Click here if you want to learn more about converting to xPONENT v3.1.
