Message: The Microplate Layout contains a Well Type which is not recognised.
Document ID: DQ275 Relevant to following products: WorkOut 2.0 Manta Document description: Message: The Microplate Layout contains a Well Type which is not recognised.
“The Microplate Layout contains a Well Type which is not recognised. Choose OK to reallocate all wells of this type to a different type.”
When custom well types are created, the settings are stored in the WTYPES.DAT file stored in the installation folder (for example C:\Program Files\Dazdaq\WorkOut 2.0)
If you transfer a protocol (APR) or results file (ARS) from one PC to another (without transferring the WTYPES.DAT file) you will get this message on opening the file for each custom sample type used.
When this happens also copy the WTYPES.DAT file so that the second PC has the same well types as the first. It is also recommend that you back up the existing WTYPES.DAT file on the second PC before you overwrite it with the copy from the first.
