There currently isn't any function in HTqPCR for doing that - mainly since
I've only worked with qPCR plates with max 2 replicates myself.

However, I've been toying with the idea of adding something like a plot of
mean (or median) versus standard deviation. Or perhaps just something like
a boxplot of standard deviations within each plate. Would that be useful,
or was it something else you had in mind?
