The MikroWin PlateProcessor supports users in manual pipetting of microplates. The software procedure is comparable with the functionality of an automatic sample distributor. Starting point is a worklist.It contains information about the tests that must be performed for each sample. The worklist is made available either by the MikroWin Database module, or by a general data processing system (LIMS, host system). At program start, the PlateProcessor will import the worklist and determines the amount of samples as well as the amount of different tests to perform.
