Scheduling & Control Software

plate::works™ software: building on 20 years of experience
Event driven scheduling

plate::works software combines the advantages of dynamic and static scheduling enabling operators to control and fine-tune dynamic scheduling by adding constraints and/or controlling elements

Real time decision making & re-scheduling

Scheduler supports on-the-fly re-scheduling, enabling operators to update critical method parameters at any time, plates to be treated depending on conditions and for system to respond to results or external triggers/inputs

Parallel methods

Scheduler able to support multiple independent methods being executed in parallel

Continuous/on-demand processing

Scheduler supports continuous plate processing allowing new sample plates and labware to be added to an already running process as well as an on-demand processing with system to process sample plates when they become available


Up to 3 identical instruments to be treated as one logical instrument (for easier programming and added redundancy)


Quickly optimize workflows (test different process variants and conditions) and to check for correct execution prior to committing time and reagents

21CFR11 support

plate::works to support setting-up regulated processes by providing user rights management and by logging changes being made to methods

Worklist support

Plate/sample specific parameters or conditions (i.e. incubation times, dispense volumes, etc) can be read from worklists. Support for cherry picking, normalization and other tasks relaying on external information

Scripting support

Enabling operators to add own functionality to scheduling process

Offline use

plate::works software supports operators taking critical detection instruments offline and to use manually up till the point where the instrument is needed to support the automated process
