New! Combine Screens function (Winter Solstice Special!)

You now can combine smaller screens created in CTweb into a single 96 well screen.  Use the "Combine Screens" function in c6 (c6.csiro.au) to combine 4 x 24 well designs, 2 x 24 + 1 x 48 well designs or 2 x 48 well designs.  This generates an .xml file for you to attach to your Tecan booking.  Ask us (c3@csiro.au) to make you a MDP_username dummy design for the pulldown menu so you can book in your new combined screen.


  • C3's old 8C and 20C imagers were decommissioned and have been replaced with Formulatrix equivalents.  
  • One of the features of the new systems is that plates don't automatically get purged from the system.  We are implementing a policy such that plates will be imaged as before (15 inspections over 2.5 months) and will be kept for a minimum of 6 months from setup date.  After that, they may or may not be disposed of, WITHOUT FURTHER NOTICE
  • We are also working on virtualising the computer infrastructure supporting the imagers - we may have some short disruptions as we move our current database to its new home in Clayton.
