Flexible Capacity

Unique System Design


MaSTR™ probabilistic genotyping software makes efficient use of the lab computer resources. With Server-client based technology, processing is done on the server and multiple clients can review results and send new jobs (Figure 1). Each user sets up and sends analysis jobs from existing Client computers. Expedited cases can be moved to the front of the queue by laboratory management. The High-speed server processes data from the queued jobs submitted by client computers. The design is flexible – labs with a lower caseload may opt to install server/database and client on the same computer. Click here for minimum and recommended computer specifications.

  1. The Database
    Used to manage the job queue, store analysis results, and store important information (Panels, Models, Protocol Sets, etc).
  2. The Server
    Runs the analysis and communicates with the client to provide results.
  3. The Client
    One or more clients may connect to the server to submit jobs and review results.


Figure 1: The software is structured into three parts, but the database (1) and server (2) are both contained within the Server virtual machine.

High Speed with minimum computer specifications



Table 1: Provides examples analysis times for simple to complex mixtures; processing two jobs at a time on a server with the minimum specifications. If you would like to learn more about MaSTR software, please watch our recorded webinar.





Figure 2: The capacity of MaSTR software can be increased with your computer hardware. The number of cores increases the capacity, not the speed.
