Document description: How to: Automatically change the number of plates based on the imported data without user intervention?
When you import data into an assay which contains a different number of plates than defined in the protocol WorkOut will advise you to update the layout. With WorkOut 2.5/WorkOut Plus you can setup the software to automatically modify the microplate layout for you, eliminating any user intervention.
To make this change a registry setting is necessary as described in this document.
With this setting made:
When running a protocol, if there are fewer plates imported than defined in the microplate layout of the protocol the redundant plates are removed from the end of the assay. If there are more plates imported than defined in the MLO then the last defined plate layout (in the top part of the MLO multiple plate editor) is repeated n times to result in the required number of microplates. Additionally, if some of the wells on the last plate are not imported (e.g. only half of the last plate was read) then those wells which were not imported on the last plate are converted to unused wells.
Without this registry setting the user is prompted to update the layout and add/remove plates and samples as required.
