Can I run one VICTOR protocol after another within the same assay?

Document ID: DQ069
Relevant to following products: WorkOut 2.0
Document description: How To: Link VICTOR protocols



In WorkOut 1.5 software it was possible to link VICTOR protocols together and read as one protocol. For example you could set-up a WorkOut protocol which uses 3 VICTOR steps, such as:

The protocol is using a 6 well plate and needs to be read as follows:
By plate mode.
First all six wells were read sequentially e.g. three times
(read first well - one read, second well - one read, etc. going back (first cycle)
read first well - one read, second well - one read, etc. going back (second cycle)
read first well - one read, second well - one read, etc. going back (third cycle) etc.)
this is followed by injection by WELL mode
(inject and read first well - one read, inject and read second well - one read, etc. going back) this is followed by sequential monitoring of samples for next ten minutes by Plate mode.
(read first well - one read, second well - one read, etc. going back (first cycle)
read first well - one read, second well - one read, etc. going back (second cycle)
read first well - one read, second well - one read, etc. going back (third cycle) etc.)

(In the VICTOR software you have an option of reading by Plate mode or by Well mode. It is not possible to read a plate with both.)

This linking protocol feature is not available in the first release of WorkOut 2.0. However, you can use WorkOut 1.5 to take the measurements and then import the data into WorkOut 2.0 so you can take advantage of the new WorkOut 2.0 features. WorkOut 1.5 can be setup to automatically launch WorkOut 2.0 after the measurements have been made so the process is relatively seamless once setup.

With builds 316 and later of WorkOut 2.0 an additional device driver is availalble which enables linking of 2 sets of VICTOR measurements.  See the link below.
