The Protocol Designer is meant to assist in building simple pipetting protocols for the OT2. If your protocol can be boiled down to a bunch of simple transfers, you should be able to make one no problem.
It’s built to work best on Chrome and a minimum resolution of 1024 x 768.
Currently PD is in beta (it has a bunch of quirks we intend to iron out in the near future). These include:
- You must assign left and right pipettes at the start, and cannot change them after.
- Each pipette can only use one type of tip rack. Note: If you ask the robot to move a volume that exceeds tip capacity it will break the action up into multiple transfers.
- Left and right pipettes cannot share tip racks, even if they use the same kind.
- To create a new protocol if one is already open you have to refresh your browser tab
