### For Fitting of Kinetics
The scripts 'SaturFitMonoExp.m' and 'SaturFitBiExp.m' 
* input is a kinetic data array and a vector containing corresponding timepoints
* data fitting to either single exponential ('SaturFitMonoExp.m') or biexponential ('SaturFitBiExp.m') function
* returns optimised parameters and fit function
