Through the API’s call 

containers.create()

you can create simple grid containers, which consist of circular wells arranged in columns and rows.

containers.create(
    '3x6_plate',                    # name of you container
    grid=(3, 6),                    # specify amount of (columns, rows)
    spacing=(12, 12),               # distances (mm) between each (column, row)
    diameter=5,                     # diameter (mm) of each well on the plate
    depth=10)                       # depth (mm) of each well on the plate

When you create your custom container, then it will be saved for later use under the name you’ve given it. This means you can use 

containers.load() 

to use the custom container you’ve created in this and any future protocol.
