"At Luminex, our passion for innovation inspires us to develop products that help improve patient care and laboratory efficiency, and accelerate the pace of medical and life-science research," said Patrick J. Balthrop, president and CEO of Luminex Corporation. "We are proud of the fact that our products and technology are helping to advance healthcare and science around the globe, and having a positive impact on the safety and well-being of people worldwide.  We are honored to receive two Stevie Awards for our innovation."

Luminex currently employs over 500 people and is transforming global healthcare and life-science research through the development, manufacturing, and marketing of proprietary instruments and bioassays for clinical diagnostics and life science research.  A recognized leader in the Austin biotechnology community and the industry, Luminex technology is commercially available worldwide and is in use in leading clinical laboratories, academic institutions, as well as major pharmaceutical diagnostic, biotechnology and life-science companies.  

The company's MAGPIX system is setting a new industry standard for multiplex testing.  Because of its innovative design weighing less than 40 pounds, or 18 kg, the system is easy to install and deploy around the world.  Its unique portability and decreased resource and sample requirements provide the power of multiplexing in an affordable format not only to traditional laboratories, but to scientific teams in remote and resource limited areas.  To date the MAGPIX system has been used at the Papua New Guinea Institute of Medical Research, a global network of independent research centers in malaria endemic settings, and Port-au-Prince, Haiti's GHESKIO Center in managing the continuing cholera outbreak following last year's earthquake.  

The 2011 American Business Awards finalists and winners were honored at the Ninth Annual gala event last night in Times Square at New York's Marriot Marquis Hotel, hosted by Cheryl Casone of Fox Business Network.
