We have cataloged and placed many custom report templates for our MasterPlex QT 2.5/3.0 customers to download and use. These templates are to be used in conjunction with the Custom Report Generator in MasterPlex QT. Click on the Details button for each report to view a screenshot of a sample report generated using the template file.

To import these templates into MasterPlex QT:

  1. Import a plate file and complete your analysis
  2. Click on the Report Generator icon
  3. Select Custom Report for Report Type and click Generate
  4. Click on the View button from the Custom Report window
  5. Click on the Import button from the Style Sheet Manager window
  6. Browse to the template file that you have downloaded and press Open

To use a template:

  1. Import a plate file and complete your analysis
  2. Click on the Report Generator icon
  3. Select Custom Report for Report Type and click Generate
  4. Click on the View button from the Custom Report window
  5. Select the template to use from the Style Sheet Manager and press Apply

Depending on the type of data the template outputs, you might see an output that is difficult to view or make sense of. There are generally 2 types of output files:

  1. CSV (comma separated value) - This file can be easily detected since all the values are separated by commas. To view this file in Excel, press the Save button and save the file with a .csv extension. If you have Excel installed, it will automatically recognize this file type and parse it correctly when you open it.
  2. XML - The output from this template type will contain many tags such as <Workbook...> or <Cell...>. Press the Save button and save the file with a .xml extension. Next locate the file and right-click on it. Select the Open With option and choose Excel. This will launch Excel and you should be able to view your data in the workbook.
