The LASERIX facility provides coherent and short soft x-ray beams for scientific applications. The beams are generated through high intensity laser interaction with matter using two different schemes, plasma based soft x-ray lasers, and high order laser harmonic generation. We describe in this communication the present status of the facility. The experimental setup composed of a terawatt titanium-sapphire laser and of different IR/XUV conversion devices is briefly described. The LASERIX beamtime has been recently opened to external users. We present two typical experiments performed in that context with the facility. The first one is dedicated to the fundamental study of the plasma based soft x-ray laser, whereas the second uses the existing beam to study irradiation induced damages in DNA samples. The future evolution of the facility, including enhancement of the laser energy is finally presented.
