Daniel Cook in Jeff Murray's lab at the University of Iowa put together this handy Excel template for keeping track of how samples from four 96-well plates are interleaved to configure a single 384-well plate using robotic liquid handling systems, like the Hydra II.
Paste in lists of samples on your 96-well plates:
And you'll get out a map of how the 384-well plate layout:
And a summary list:
