CSV-file based setup

Skip programming and set up e.g., cherry picking, dilution, and normalization with csv-files.

All flowbot® ONE pipetting steps can be set up with a simple CSV format, enabling you to skip programming altogether. This is especially useful if you are performing cherry picking, dilution or normalization.

The CSV files allow the user to create quick setups of complex protocols, reducing the risk of errors and saving time.

CSV files are great for defining:

  • Your deck layout
  • Your individual pipetting and dispensing steps.
  • Concentrations and other inputs for normalization.
  • Concentrations and other inputs for dilution.
  • ID tags on individual plates and wells for traceability.

I have a python script, so I just upload the CSV file in the flowbot® ONE software. I don’t know what I would do without the CSV file function. Creating the program is very easy and the software is user-friendly and nice to work with.

How does it work?

There are two ways to go about setting up a program:

1: Start from scratch and upload a csv file directly into an empty program.

2: Use the function to add to or change something in a template program. You do that by downloading the existing program as a csv-file, making your changes to the file in excel and uploading it into the same program.

It is clearly indicated in our guided user interface where to upload the file.
