### Value

an object of elisa_run holding data and annotations for one or multiple plates.

### Examples

#get example annotation file path from the system folder
ann<-system.file("extdata", "annote.txt", package="ELISAtools")
std.conc<-system.file("extdata", "stdConc.txt", package="ELISAtools")

#read them in and there are 2 plates.
