FAQ

Ask us anything at the clarity-dev google group.

How can I add an interface to my instrument?

A simple tutorial is available here: Creating a Custom Instrument

Then again, you might not need to. We’re working on integrating Standardisation in Lab Automation interfaces into Clarity.

Can Clarity run on Windows, GNU/Linux, OS X?

Yes, using the mono .NET development framework.

For more information see Getting Started

What are the recovery mechanisms for errors within Clarity?

Since error recovery will be different for different instruments, each instrument interface defines its own recovery mechanisms. These mechanisms can be accessed through Clarity’s GUI.

If human intervention is necessary, Clarity’s scheduling engine makes it easy to re-run past instructions and restart protocol execution.

What does Clarity look like when it is running?

We have a screenshot here.
