Calculates and plots the density of the number of positive molecules or the average number of molecules per partition. Can be used for both array digital PCR and droplet digital PCR.
1 2 
k 
Total number of positive molecules. 
n 
Total number of partitions. 
average 
If 
methods 
Method for calculating the confidence interval.
Possible values are: 
conf.level 
The level of confidence to be used in the confidence interval. Values from 0 to 1 and 1 to 0 are acceptable. 
plot 
If 
bars 
plot on density plot bars for discrete values of lambda. 
... 
Additional arguments send to 
A data frame with one row containing bounds of the confidence intervals and a name of the method used to calculate them.
