There are a few ways to do this, I will show you the most straight forward way:

function results = scanParameters(model, values, parameterNames)

MParam= sbioselect (model, 'Type', 'parameter', 'Where', 'Name', '==', ...

for i = 1:size(values, 1)
for j = 1:numel(MParam)
MParam(j).Value = values(i, j);

results(i) = sbiosimulate(model);
sprintf('Simulation failed for values %d', values(i, :));

This can be improved a bit but I hope it show how you can do this. It can be improved by doing some error checking, for example I assumed that values for the parameters are in rows but did not check.

Note that it is possible that a simulation will fail for some parameter values so I wrapped the call to sbiosimulate in a try catch.

The returned value is an array of objects that have your simulation values.

For example if the return is called 'results' you can plot things like this for the first simulation:

t = results(1).time;
x = results(1).data;

plot(t, x)

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have further questions.
