Cytobank Experiment Manager
Sorting and Organizing Experiments Using Filters and Labels
You can easily find the experiment you need by using the pre-set ownership filters in the left panel of the Experiment Manager (All, Mine, Shared with me, Public, Cytobank curated, or Trash).
Custom labels for a single or multiple experiments can be created by clicking on the checkbox to the left of the experiment name. Click the button that appears above called “Apply label.” This will create a colored label that appears next to the Experiment Name, as well as generate a filter for that label that appears in the left pane.

Using the Expanded Detail View
When selecting an experiment in the Experiment Manager a more detailed view automatically expands to provide an overview of different experimental attributes. It shows users who have access, gated populations, advanced analysis such as viSNE or FlowSOM linked to this experiment and information on included FCS files, attached files and other details.
Visualizing Linked Experiments
Linked experiments are experiments and advanced analyses that are related to each other in a hierarchy of parents, siblings and descendants. Linkages are illustrated in an interactive tree diagram from the Experiment Summary page, under the section, “Linked experiments”. This is helpful when navigating related experiments and understanding how they relate to each other.
