LIMS::MT_Plate_File - A Perl module for managing microtitre plate file objects
use LIMS::MT_Plate_File; my $sample_file = mt_plate_file->new("/file.txt");
LIMS::MT_Plate_File is an object-oriented Perl module for managing files describing the contents of a microtitre plate for import to the LIMS::MT_Plate module. There are two classes of MT_Plate_File object - the
mt_plate_file class uses a single 'well' column to name the wells (e.g. 'A1') whereas the
rowcol_plate_file class uses two separate columns 'row' and 'col'.
Pass these methods a well name to retrieve the sample name/type.
Returns an array ref of all sample names/types
Returns the plate barcode/type, the latter assumed from well/row numbers
The number of wells imported
