Examples

Creating a plate with 96 wells with pylabrobot.resources.create_equally_spaced():

>>> from pylabrobot.resources import Plate
>>> plate = Plate("plate", size_x=1, size_y=1, size_z=1, lid_height=10,
...   items=create_equally_spaced(Well
...     dx=0, dy=0, dz=0, item_size_x=1, item_size_y=1,
...     num_items_x=1, num_items_y=1))

Creating a plate with 1 well with a list:

>>> from pylabrobot.resources import Plate
>>> plate = Plate("plate", size_x=1, size_y=1, size_z=1, lid_height=10,
...   items=[[Well("well", size_x=1, size_y=1, size_z=1)]])
