If you're familiar with the process for running the OT-One outside of the App, the process for running the OT-2 now is much more streamlined. Here's how to do it.

Launching Jupyter Notebook

Each robot comes pre-installed with Jupyter Notebook, and can be accessed in your preferred web browser.

To launch the Jupyter notebook server click on the OPEN button toward the bottom of the robot tab in the app.

The landing page will look like this:

Once you're inside Jupyter Notebook, you'll need to create a new Notebook like this:

Running your Protocol

Once you've created a new Notebook, all you need to do is enter code into the cells and run them. However, there are some special considerations you'll need to keep in mind when writing code and running the robot via Jupyter notebook. See our API Documentation for more information and examples of how to structure your code to run on Jupyter.

If at any point in this process you have questions or encounter issues, as always feel free to contact us via chat or email at support@opentrons.com
