While the OT-2 can be adapted to use a wide range of labware, it comes pre-loaded with a set of Opentrons and 3rd party labware definitions to get you up and running as quickly as possible.

The labware on your robot was selected for compatibility with the OT-2 deck and pipettes, and has been tested both in-house and in our customers’ labs. We recommend starting with these labware to get your OT-2 up and running as smoothly and reliably as possible.

For a full guide to the labware on your OT-2 as well as links to purchase them from Opentrons or 3rd party manufacturers, visit the Opentrons Labware Library

If you would like to use labware that is not yet in the Opentrons Labware Library, you’ll need a custom labware definition. Read more here about how to get a custom definition for you labware.
