Experiment Summary

Reports in PDF format can be generated from MyGo Pro experiments using 2.1.7 software or later. You have the flexibility to choose the sections you wish to include in your report including graphs, tables and figure legends. Please open the “MyGo Pro 6 plex” from the MyGo Pro demo data folder. When opening an experiment you are always greeted with the Experiment Summary window.

Experiment Report

The Experiment Report window can be viewed by selecting the Experiment Report tab, to the right of the Experiment Summary tab. The report name will be the name given to the experiment in the Experiment Summary.

User Name

A username can be given to your report. For example, this report was performed by Lab Technician 1. If a username is not given to the report it will read (no name given).

Page Size

The page size of the report can be changed in the Page Size drop down menu.

Included Tables and Graphs Table

This table is where you choose what you want to include in your report. The analysis sections that are available for the report must be present as analyses in the experiment. For example, this experiment can only contain report information for Auto. Quant. because it is the only one available in the analyses section. Reports on Experimental sections, such as Profile Graph and Samples will always be available to include as they cannot be removed from the experiment.

Not all analyses provide tables or graphs that can be included in the report. The following analyses do provide tables or graphs that can be included in the report:

  • Auto quantification

  • Auto endpoint genotyping

  • Auto HRM

  • Auto Tm calling

Included Wells

This allows you to select which specific wells will be included in the report. You may select the wells you want the software to generate a report for, and select Export only selected wells. If this is not selected then the software will generate a report for all wells. In the example below, all wells have been selected, as well as Export only selected wells.

Including Sections

You can select which sections you want to include in the report by ticking the Include column next to the sections you wish to include. Below I have chosen to include all experiment data, and the Amplification graph in the report. It is possible to change the title of each section that will appear in the report. This will not affect the analysis in the experiment. This can be modified by entering a new title in the Title dialog box. Amplification graphs can be arranged either in one column or two, depending on how big you want the graphs to be. This can be modified in the Columns drop down menu.

Export Report

Once you are happy with the report select Export Report and save it in your desired location. The report file will open automatically afterwards.

There are three file formats available for report exporting

  • Direct to .pdf : This exports the report to a .pdf file using the software’s own pdf exporting capabilities. This is the recommended option, the other two are for expert users only.

  • LaTeX to pdf (requires pdflatex) : this exports the report to a LaTeX file and then compiles it to a pdf file using the third-party program pdflatex, which should be installed on your system (and properly configured) if you want to use this option. LaTeX-based reports tend to have better pagination than “Direct to .pdf” reports. See also https://www.latex-project.org/

  • LaTeX file and associated pdf figures : this exports the report to a LaTeX file, which you can edit or compile afterwards. See also https://www.latex-project.org/

Report Settings

The report settings can be saved if you wish to load them into another experiment. This can be done by selecting Save Settings and opening them up in another experiment by selecting Load Settings.
