Multiplex Manager is a collaboration between myself (Biologist) and Paul Geerts (Programmer). This project aimed to produce a piece of software that  filled a niche in the scientific community and was accessible and easy to use. Multiplex Manager helps researchers to plan and optimise multiplex PCRs and has been used mostly in the context of microsatellite (STR) multiplexing. Our program has been widely embraced as researchers have been able to increase the efficiency and reduce the cost of their research by analysing many microsatellite loci in a single reaction.
