The Hitachi Software MiraiBio Group has just released a new build of MasterPlex QT v4.0 that boasts several new improvements:
- Best Fit Options – The Best Fit feature now offers 3 parameters for which you can optimize for to determine the best curve fit:
- Root Mean Square Error (RMSE) – RMSE is a good measure of accuracy or goodness of fit which aggregates the individual differences or residuals between your expected and calculated values into a single measure of predictive power. This is the default option as it is the one that is recommended.
- Standard Deviation of % Recovery – This option will provide the model equation and weighting algorithm combination with the lowest standard deviation of percent recovery. The percent recovery is basically the calculated concentration – the expected concentration * 100.
- R-squared – This option is the only Best Fit option in previous builds of MasterPlex QT v4.0. It is not as sensitive to the goodness of fit as the RMSE option.
- Competitive Binding and Inhibition Assays – This build provides improved support for competitive binding or inhibition assays.
- More Intuitive Auto Fill – Auto Fill is simplified with more intuitive dilution direction buttons and being able to preview the standard values.
