PLX file

A PLX file defines which particles have which probes on them.  

There are two formats, one for microRNA assays and one for immuno assays.

The microRNA format is a list of comma-separated fields giving the two-digit code of the probe, and the name of the probe.  As an example
"10,1",hsa-let-7d-5p
"9,1",hsa-let-7g-5p
"8,1",hsa-let-7i-5p


The immuno format is a list of probe names followed by a hyphen, followed by a code ACZYX.
The X, Y and Z numbers give the code positions in a three dimensional space.  The C is a checksum to verify the code.    As an example
Apolipoprotein AII-A4020
IGFBP3-AA244
Transferrin-A2034
