Character profiles can be displayed in a panel with user-defined representations and color scales or in a list with values. The character display tools in BIONUMERICS are very flexible, resulting in a truthful image of all test results, be it from a commercially available test panel (e.g. Biolog plates, bioMérieux' API strips), DNA or microarray, microplate assay (e.g. ELISA tests in 96 or 384 well plate format) or any standard biochemical test.
Further adjustable features include the numerical range of the characters, the number of digits, the color scale, similarity coefficients used for comparison, etc.
