August 06, 2012

User-definable assay buttons can be created in the Microplate, Cuvette (SPECTROstar Nano) and LVis Plate tabs of the main program window for faster access to frequently used protocols.

Creating a new button is possible by clicking the ‘New Button’ or by copying an existing user button. You can also drag a Microplate or LVis Plate protocol from the protocol selection window directly to the user button region.


Right clicking a user button opens a menu with allows you to start the measurement immediately (without opening the Start Measurement dialogue) and to edit the test protocol. Change the position of a user button by simply dragging it to its new position (drag-and-drop).

Special notes about assay buttons: The left click function is configurable, see Program Configuration - Preferences Tab. User-definable buttons can be switched off using the program configuration dialogue. The user-definable buttons use the user-specific protocol data bases; therefore, each user can create his own set of buttons and can define the protocols independently. Run Only users (see chapter Login Screen) are not allowed to create or delete user-definable buttons or to edit the associated test protocols.
