  • Program Definition & Template Parameter Files

    "Template parameter files" (*.tp) are parameter files (= experiments) pre-defined by Lonza. They are available for all 96-well Shuttle™ Protocols which involve an optimization, i.e. the provide a ready-to-use optimization scheme. A "program definition file" (*.pd) contains the list of all 96-well programs and cell-type codes which can be used to directly select the optimal conditions (program and solution) for a certain cell type.

    Both file types are automatically installed with the 96-well Shuttle™ Software, but can be individually integrated into the software without the need of updating the compete software.
