Abstract

The Electronic Laboratory Information and Management Utensil for Molecular Diagnostics (ELIMU-MDx) is a user-friendly platform designed and built to accelerate the turnaround time of diagnostic qPCR assays. ELIMU-MDx is compliant with Minimum Information for Publication of Quantitative Real-Time PCR Experiments (MIQE) guidelines and has extensive data-import capabilities for all major qPCR instruments by using the RDML data standard. This platform was designed as an open-source software tool and can be accessed through the web browser on all major operating systems.
