Automatic statistical analysis of quantified multiplex ligation-dependent probe amplification (MLPA) products

Note: This page is preserved for historical reasons. Since the autumn of 2015 our use of RH-MLPA-Analysis.mdb has been replaced by Coffalyser.Net ( I.e we have thus stopped maintaining RH-MLPA-Analysis.mdb.

The software is developed for analysing MLPA ( DNA fragment analysis data generated on an ABI Genetic Analyser (e.g. ABI 3100) and sized to standard fragment lengths by GeneScan, GeneMapper or Peak Scanner.
The automatic diagnosis and the sample quality evaluation made by the software are only intended to assist in making diagnosis, i.e. we cannot warrant for its usefulness, and we make no warranty to the use or performance of the software.
