Summary: Doelan is an automated tool designed to monitor the quality of DNA microarray production. The software executes a series of quality control tests on hybridizations to validate batches of chips. The reports generated by Doelan should help microarray platforms aiming at quality labels, such as ISO 9001 certification. The Doelan application is written in Java and works with a plug-in system that allows everyone to add custom validation tests.
