The rapid analysis of ongoing gravitational microlensing events has been integral to the successful detection and characterisation of cool planets orbiting low mass stars in the Galaxy. In this paper we present an implementation of search and fit techniques on Graphical Processing Unit hardware. The method allows for the rapid identification of candidate planetary microlensing events and their subsequent followup for detailed characterisation.
