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 Since the autumn of 2015 our use of RH-MLPA-Analysis.mdb has been replaced by Coffalyser.Net (www.mlpa.com). I.e we have thus stopped maintaining RH-MLPA-Analysis.mdb.
The program "RH-MLPA-Analysis.mdb" analyses and prints a report of one or optional all
samples of a run on basis of the samples analysed by GeneScan, GeneMapper or Peak Scanner.
The program requires Microsoft Access 2000 or higher, and currently it handles these MRC MLPA probe sets: P021, P023, P026B, P033, P036B, P036D, P036-E1, P064B, P064-B2, P069, P069-A2, P095, P095-A2, P105-C1, P208-B1, P230-B1, P245, P245-A2, P264-A1, P277-A1, P286-A1, P291-A1.
The program and example data folders for each probe set are packed into "RH-MLPA-v521.zip".
After unpacking the folder, it has to be placed into the C-drive as "C:\RH-MLPA-v521", otherwise the examples for each probe set cannot be run without you modify the initial settings of folder paths etc. With this system you can download new versions and still use the old versions that each has a unique folder name.

Note: The automatic diagnosis and sample quality evaluation made by the software is 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.
- Probe sets P064-B2, P095-A2, P105-C1, P245-A2, P208-B1, P230-B1, P249, P264-A1, P277-A1, P286-A1, P291-A1 are added
- The analysis process is now streamlined to work with exported GeneMapper data
- Probe set P036-E1 is added
- Quality evaluation of DNA denaturation control fragments (D-fragments) is improved
- The limits (<0.60 or >1.35) for suggesting individual 'abnormal' probe areas are changed to (<0.65 or >1.3).
For P095 the program now gives warnings of potential mosaicism for these situations of significant ratios:
- Ratio is higher than 0.7 when a ratio of 0.5 is expected
- Ratio is less than 1.3 when a ratio of 1.5 is expected
- Ratio is less than 1.8 when a ratio of 2.0 is expected
