GBG Batch Planner

Schedule throughput in the lab with GBG batch planner

Eliminate Bottlenecks, Increase Throughput

GBG Batch Planner is a calendar-based plug-in for Green Button Go Software that eliminates bottlenecks and increases the use of high-value equipment. Plan time-course experiments, schedule plate batches and build a calendar that maps workcell availability to schedule runs. The result? High-priced equipment no longer sits idle overnight and scientists are freed to do high-value work.

  • Improve throughput on the workcell
  • Maximize access to essential equipment necessary for-multiple, time-course experiments
  • Manage inventory for the scheduled run, processing different batches from storage
  • Schedule long experiments that run for several days
  • Schedule various batches of time-course studies on the same workcell
  • View the queued batches and remaining plates during the run
  • Access instrument availability to schedule maintenance at the most opportune times
GBG Batch Planner:
  • Add and start new batches in a scheduled run
  • Identify and manage timing conflicts between batches
  • Create a newbatch with a single click
  • Enter the time and frequency to read the plate, as well as the duration of time-course experiments
  • Foresee when equipment is available for use
  • Identify and resolve conflicts between scheduled batches
  • Option to use more than one instance of a reader in a pool and read several plates in parallel
  • Read barcodes from a file list or barcodes on a plate to specify which plates to run
  • Assign a unique batch ID for tracking each batch and the method used to process it
  • Display the calendar and indicate when the workcell is available
  • Support multiple users
  • Insert and queue batches from multiple users, while the workcell is still running
