Transform is a layer of analysis which performs an operation
on input data resulting in output data. Transforms can
be layered to define the analysis operations of the
Each transform has a number of settings used to specify
the parameters of the analysis.
For example, the Factor transform takes an input matrix
of endpoint data (this could be the raw measurements
from the instrument) and then multiplies each endpoint
value by a specified factor resulting in an output matrix
of factored data.
Further transforms be created which take the output
of one transform as their input.
Manta provides an extensive library of transforms to
cater for even the most demanding assay requirements.
Manta includes a number of Wizards which automatically
set up the required transforms for typical applications.
For example, the Quantitative Wizard may setup a Blank
Correction transform with Standard Curve Fit and Dilution
Factor transforms to calculate concentrations of blank
corrected data with an specified dilution factor for
each Unknown group.
