Repeat steps in a Loop

Add a Loop to the Protocol to repeat one or more steps a fixed number of times. The Loop is a step container. First, add the Loop step to the Protocol and then put the action steps between the loop start and end steps. Here's an example:

How to use a Loop:
  1. Highlight a step or <end of steps> placeholder and click the Loop button,
  2. Enter the number of times to perform the series of steps in the loop and click OK. The LHC adds Loop start and Loop end steps, with the end step highlighted.
  3. Click the action button and define the parameters of the steps to be repeated.
  4. When all the protocol steps are defined, click Validate to make sure the instrument can perform them.
  5. Save the protocol.

Make sure the steps to be performed are inside the Loop's start and end steps.
