Can SFP/XFP ports be aggregated using LACP?

Hi Everyone,
I just had one quick question, I am looking at  purchasing some new Dell Powerconnect switches and potentially connecting them using the SFP Combo ports using either 10gbps Ethernet or Fibre SFP/XFP tranceivers and was wondering If I would be right in assuming that I can use LACP to combine these ports into a LAG group to provide link aggregation and redundancy between switches as I would with  regular Gigabit Ethernet ports?

Any assistance in helping me clarifying this issue would be most appreciated

Hi!
In most cases SFP ports are aggregatable.
As for XFP - please check vendors documentation, because in some cases there are hardware limitations
