During protocol design you can check and verify the properties of each of the labware you are using on the virtual bench. Initially, you can check the exact information and properties of the labware before you add them to the virtual bench (see the article “Adding labware to the virtual bench”), in the “Adding labware to the virtual bench” menu. This you can do by clicking on the picture of the labware you would like to know more about.
Clicking on the picture of the labware you are interested in, opens a pop-up window with detailed information about this specific labware. For most of the labware, a button labelled “Manufacturer data” is present. Clicking on it directs you to the website of the manufacturer or vendor with even more specific details, while in some cases, you are brought to e-store pages, where you can easily order the labware you are interested in.
Once the labware is already added on the virtual bench, you can visualize the same information by selecting the labware and clicking on the information icon in the black menu bar attached to the labware. On the right side of your screen, automatically the “Labware info tab” will appear where in the bottom part the most important information about the labware is displayed.Clicking on the “Show product details” link, opens again the pop-up window with detailed information about this specific labware, as mentioned above.
