What is a protocol?

A protocol, also known as a standard operating procedure, is a list of instructions to perform an experiment. It is a plan used to duplicate results from a previous test to allow for more accurate analysis. In a research  laboratory, many protocols are needed for safety, to operate analytical equipment and to make solutions with minimal mistakes.
