  About Multiplex Manager

Multiplex Manager is a cross platform tool that designs and optimises Multiplex PCRs.

It allows you to enter your marker information and will automatically create a set of reactions that optimises for the criteria you specify.
By default, Multiplex Manager creates a reaction set that:

  • Minimises the total number of reactions
  • Maximises the spacing between markers in the same reaction
  • Minimises the variance of annealing temperature in each reaction

While doing this, it also takes into account complementarity between markers in the same reaction
(automatically calculated from your marker sequences) and any specific artifacts that consistently appear in your electrophoretograms.
