Arguments

object

an object of class cellHTS.

Value

pdim returns a vector of length 2 containing integer values that correspond to the number of rows and columns in a plate. This corresponds to the plate format used in the screen (for example, 96-well or 384-well plates).

plate returns a vector of integers with the same length as the product between the number of wells per plate and the number of plates. This gives the plate number for each well in the assay. Corresponds to fData(object)[,"plate"].

well returns a character vector containing the wells identifiers (for example "A01", "H06"). Its length equals the product between the number of wells per plate and the number of plates. This vector corresponds to fData(object)[,"well"].

position gives a numeric vector containing every well positions (1, 2, 3, ...). Its length is equal to the product between the number of wells per plate and the number of plates.
