AssayZap is a universal assay calculator for RIA, ELISA, IRMA, colorimetric or any other type of assay. Counts of up to 2~31 can be handled. Standard curves can be fitted by 2-parameter, 4-parameter or 4-parameter weighted fit, or by the unique interactive manual fit which permits all standard curves to be fitted, whatever their shape. Assays may include up to 2000 tubes and up to four standard curves, each of which can incorporate up to 24 values. Assay drift can be compensated by interpolation of results between standard curves.
AssayZap can maintain a historical record for each assay, and enable the current standard curve and QCs to be compared with this and adjusted if necessary. AssayZap can process data from 96 and 384-well plate readers in any order: so assays can be set up to your own design.
AssayZap includes communications routines permitting the computer to upload data directly from any instrument with a R232 or R422 interface. Translation commands are already incorporated for many LKB, Packard, Nuclear Enterprises, Titertek, Dynatech, Rack, Clinigamma, Multigamma, Gammamaster, Delfia, Labtek, Digitech, Wallac, Tracor, Bio-Tek and Biorad instruments. AssayZap also enables you to add additional translation commands to suit your machine if it is not currently supported. AssayZap can send a command to a plate reader or other instrument to initialize it and start an experiment. There is also a command-line system which allows AssayZap to be run from programs which you are writing yourself. Equipment manufacturers or IT specialists can thus integrate AssayZap fully into their own systems.
Data can also be keyed in manually. Graphs can be saved as BMP or WMF files in Windows and results are in text format which can be pasted or imported to other programs. There is now a facility to automatically print out the results from each analysis when it is finished.
AssayZap 為一用於 RIA、ELISA、IRMA、比色或任何其他類型測定的一個檢測計算器。可處理 2~31 的數量。標準曲線的回歸可以通過 2-parameter、4-paramete 或 4-parameter weighted 模型，或由手動來計算模型，不論形狀都允許所有標準曲線進行擬合。可測定多達 2,000 支試管和最多四個標準曲線，其每一個能對應至多達 24個值。分析漂移可以通過標準曲線之間的插值得到補償。
AssayZap 可以維護每個測定的歷史記錄，並且使當前的標準曲線和的 QC 進行比較，並在必要時調整。AssayZap 可以從任何順序處理 96 和 384 孔盤，使測定可以依自己的設計設置。
