Note: If you have not had a Protocol Development Consultation, please do so now and we will help you determine which protocol method is right for you.
There are essentially two options for writing a protocol for the OT-2:
- Protocol Designer ➡️ basic workflows, no coding required
- Python API ➡️ unlimited control and customization, Python proficiency required
Based on your workflow needs, please continue with either:
Want to know more?
Protocol Designer is the best option for users with basic workflows.
The Python API is best if you are highly proficient in Python and want to write your own workflows. If you have a complex workflow that goes beyond the scope of Protocol Designer and need Opentrons to write a custom protocol for you, we can do this, free of charge.
- If you need help figuring this out, please schedule a protocol development consultation if you have not already done so.
