The flow cytometry data file standard provides the specifications needed to completely describe flow cytometry data sets within the confines of the file containing the experimental data. In 1984, the first Flow Cytometry Standard format for data files was adopted as FCS 1.0. This standard was modified in 1990 as FCS 2.0 and again in 1997 as FCS 3.0. We(More)
BACKGROUND Recent advances in automation technologies have enabled the use of flow cytometry for high throughput screening, generating large complex data sets often in clinical trials or drug discovery settings. However, data management and data analysis methods have not advanced sufficiently far from the initial small-scale studies to support modeling in(More)
Traditional flow cytometry data analysis is largely based on interactive and time consuming analysis of series two dimensional representations of up to 20 dimensional data. Recent technological advances have increased the amount of data generated by the technology and outpaced the development of data analysis approaches. While there are advanced tools(More)
An important research task of the EuroMISE Centre is the applied research in the field of electronic health record (EHR) design including electronic medical guidelines and intelligent systems for data mining and decision support. The research in this field was inspired by several European projects. We have proposed a mathematical meta-description of a(More)
Development of the electronic health record architecture at the EuroMISE Center was inspired by existing European standards and several European projects. The developed EHR named MUDR implements a 3-layer architecture, using XML for communication between application layer and clients. A decision support module implementing the "1999 WHO/ISH Guidelines for(More)
BACKGROUND Flow cytometry is a widely used analytical technique for examining microscopic particles, such as cells. The Flow Cytometry Standard (FCS) was developed in 1984 for storing flow data and it is supported by all instrument and third party software vendors. However, FCS does not capture the full scope of flow cytometry (FCM)-related data and(More)
BACKGROUND Flow cytometry technology is widely used in both health care and research. The rapid expansion of flow cytometry applications has outpaced the development of data storage and analysis tools. Collaborative efforts being taken to eliminate this gap include building common vocabularies and ontologies, designing generic data models, and defining data(More)
FlowRepository is a free public flow cytometry data repository intended for authors of peer-reviewed manuscripts to deposit their underlying flow cytometry data, provide annotations , and share annotated datasets upon publication. Primarily, FlowRepository is accessed via a web-based user interface (https://flowrepository.org/), however, it also includes an(More)
1 Abstract This package provides methods to calculate flow cytometer's detection efficiency (Q) and background illumination (B) by analyzing LED pulses and multi-level bead sets. The method improves on previous formulations Wood (1998); Hoffman and Wood (2007); Chase and Hoffman (1998) by fitting a full quadratic model with appropriate weighting, and by(More)
