  1. Some of these plates seem to be easy to treat as 384 well plates when pipetting at fixed heights and ignoring liquid volumes / filling levels in the wells. I could imagine to run the individual transfers with specific Techniques/Templates to avoid touching the bottom. Some others have a more irregular format, so I would suggest to define different pieces of labware (96 well format) and swapping them with Instrument Setup steps as needed. But I could also imagine to have only one labware definition and use different Pipetting Templates where you move to the desired XYZ-position. For both cases make sure, the Auto-Select option for the Techniques is switched off so that the user must pick the correct Technique/Template manually! Ulrich I'm sorry for the delay, I just found this post (and some others) in another folder of the forum. It wasn't activated yet and I never received any notification about it. So I moved it here as this seems to be the proper location.
  2. Hi Valeria, I just uploaded a definition of a Transwell 96 plate here: http://forums.beckmancoulter.com/index.php?showtopic=2212 Sorry, but I couldn't check it for correctness or if it matches your configuration as I don't have any labware to test... It should be fairly easy to get this running, just open the Instrument Setup step and drag the first (bottom) piece of labware on the position. Then drag the next piece of labware on top... Ulrich
  3. Hi Valeria, I don't have that piece of labware, but I think this should be configurable with the stacking rules. There is much written in the software manual, so I just summarize here: "A stack offset is the distance between stacked labware, measured from the bottom, back-left corner on the labware to the bottom back-left corner on the labware above it." If one just have to calculate the stack offset in Z between 2 pieces of labware, simply measure the total height of the stack and subtract the height of the labware at the top... I hope there are some people around, already using this labware - so they can share their numbers. Ulrich
  4. Depending on what information you want to print, have a look at code 128 as well. It could have a higher density if using numeric blocks (it combines two digits into one code-character) so the code becomes shorter... Ulrich
