How to design OT-2 protocols: Requesting Custom Protocols 



Join the third installment of our webinar tutorial series: How to Design OT-2 Protocols. This series explores how users can create automated lab protocols for the Opentrons system. Whether you’re an automation newbie or an experienced Python coder, this series will help you navigate your pathway to lab automation. 


In this installment of our webinar series, we will meet with our protocol design team and learn how they can help you design a custom protocol for the OT-2. By choosing to the Opentrons remote custom protocol development service, you get the following benefits:

  • Custom Remote Protocol Development
  • 2 Week Turnaround Time (from time of purchase)
  • Protocol Installation (remote)
  • Personalized instructions for deck and reagent setup
  • Code validation by a Field Applications Scientist before delivery
  • Unlimited protocol optimization with a Field Application Scientist within one week of initial script delivery (within four business hours

We recommend most new users start here, and then explore the Opentrons API when looking for advanced and custom functionality such as CSV mapping and embedded conditional logic.
