Run your first protocol

Now you’re ready to run your first protocol! Press the Run button in your OT App, sit back, and enjoy your new hands-free workflow! Once the protocol starts, a pop up will show you a list of commands as the occur, and you can pause, resume or cancel your protocol.

When you're ready to move on to a different protocol, remember to visit our protocol library for inspiration. If you'd like to dive in a little deeper, you should check out the Opentrons docs for some tips on creating your own python files. Also, be sure to take a look at our available add-on modules as you automate more of your workflows!
