MPI 10.6 released

MPI 10.6 was released today, including three small new features:

  • Support for copying and pasting median data from the clipboard, in CSV format.
  • Tools for entering maternal age and converting to a notional birth date for use in calculations.
  • A sample LIMS import file in the demonstration database.

Some small bugs were also fixed from 10.5, notably in the sample set name reported after pressing the Finish button in the Samples view.

It’s an optional update. Download the update installer here.

MPI 10.5 released

MPI 10.5 was released today, including two new features:

  • Support for Sample Sets, an enhancement to workflow for both automatic import via the LIMS interface and manual data entry. Organizing samples into sets is particularly helpful when MPI is used by multiple users simultaneously, but can also improve documentation for single-user installations.
  • A report listing the text of all blurbs.

It’s an optional update, but particularly recommended for users who use LIMS. Download the update installer here.

MPI 10.3 released

MPI 10.3 was released today, including these changes:

  • Add separate MoM factors and blurbs for donor vs. maternal egg IVF. See documentation for full details.
  • Add a Databases view to show all recently-opened databases when no database is open. This is particularly helpful for setting up new users on a shared workstation.
  • Break out median calculation by smoking status, so you can explore the effect of smoking on medians and compute your own smoking factor.
  • Separate the sense of the PE blurb, so that blurb PX is now produced for samples dated via physical exam, while PE still refers to a subcategory of Down Syndrome screening outcomes. If you used the PE blurb to indicate dating by physical exam before, check that the PX blurb is created correctly after installation. Contact RMA if you need assistance.
  • Add Fit to Page on the Ready Samples view, for conveniently controlling that option for a batch of reports.
  • Bug fixes throughout the product.

It’s recommended for all users, but not urgent for regular use. Download the update installer here.

MPI 10.2.5 released

MPI 10.2.5 was released today, including:

  • Add File > Import and Export to/from CSV files.
  • Add LIMS Export Selected to the Ready Samples view.
  • Added fields to LIMS interface: Smoker, ReportAsFirst, and IsIVF.
  • Added Daily Medians report from prior versions.
  • Bug fixes and speedups for NT median computation and support for various unusual import/export cases.

It’s recommended for all users, but not urgent for regular use. Download the update installer here.

MPI 10.1.0 released

Version 10.1.0 of Maciel Prenatal Interpreter is now available.

This release introduces integrated risk calculation for Down syndrome, activated by checking an Integrated box on a given Sample.

  • First-trimester samples: if Integrated is checked, no FDS risk is calculated, and the IF blurb is produced on the report.
  • Second-trimester samples: if Integrated is checked, the most recent first-trimester sample’s MoM values are combined with the second-trimester’s MoM values to compute FDS risk, using the configured Integrated statistical parameter set.

The only choice for an Integrated parameter set is currently SURUSS.

More details are in the updated Calculation Reference and in the Help menu.

Bug fixes and other small features include:

  • Fixed: When changing the list of markers in a sample, an error message prevented continuing. (#1206)
  • Fixed: Extra information printed in the Physician Sample Report when Down syndrome risk was suppressed.
  • Added File > Close command.

This version is recommended for all users of MPI 10. Download the update installer here.
