Executing a Plate Dispense

Executing a plate dispense is simple. Before you proceed, you should have performed the prerequisites.




To dispense a plate design:


When the dispense finishes, if you are not planning to dispense more than one plate, you can run reagent recovery to conserve reagent volume (optional), or proceed directly to cleaning the chips.

If you are running a multi-plate dispense, the Change Plate Dialog will appear. You can either continue the dispense or abort it. If you want to continue, place your next plate on the plate holder and click Continue. Click Stop to abort the dispense.
