We have released an major feature release for Auto PeakTrace RP (6.80). The full list of changes and improvements include:
New Feature. Total traces processed and success rate shown.
New Feature. Auto PeakTrace RP 6 can be used as a command line program.
Improvements to fuse basecall and fuse trace with difficult sequences.
Improvement of the basecalling of “drop out” peaks.
Improvements to extra normalization of PCR product traces.
More accurate estimated time for trace processing completion.
Other bug fixes and enhancements.
The major change of this release is that Auto PeakTrace RP 6.80 can now be used from the command line. This allows the easy integration of Auto PeakTrace RP 6.80 into various LIMS scripts.
If Auto PeakTrace RP 6.80 is used from the command line with no options it will use the settings (including the input and output directories) saved from the last use of Auto PeakTrace RP 6. The saved settings can be overwritten by the use of command line switches. If no switch value is provided on the command line then value in the save setting file will be used. Settings that are changed via the command line update the setting file for future runs of Auto PeakTrace RP 6.
Auto PeakTrace RP 6.70 for Windows and (MacOS X will be released later) and can be downloaded from the PeakTrace RP downloads page. This release is also available via the automatic update feature within Auto PeakTrace RP if you are currently using a recent version.
