Protocol Basics

Protocols are instructions for Instruments like the MultispeQ on how to run a measurement.

Can any Protocol run on any Instrument?

No, Instruments have different configurations, so Protocols might trigger the wrong lights, or request a sensor that is not available. Make sure that the Protocol is compatible with your Instrument.

Protocols can be associated with Macros

Macros are small pieces of code that help you analyze a measurement. After a measurement is done, a macro can be applied to make calculations based on the measurement results.

Does a Protocol need a Macro?

No, you don’t have to have a Macro for a Protocol. Yet most of the measurements require a Macro since they need to be analyzed further to provide useful information.
