Designing protocols - 9.9 - Description

After saving your protocol, use Description to classify it and describe it. This step is optional but will help you manage your protocols once you have a large library or are sharing with other users.

Design Description

  • Select a protocol type e.g. clean up from the dropdown list in Type.
  • Write as detailed a description as you feel will be useful in Description. If you are planning to share the protocol, it will be helpful to other users to do this.
  • It would also be useful to include details of other materials required for the protocol in the description, as ‘Labware & Consumables’ will only show materials loaded in firefly.
