  • Minimum Information about a Flow Cytometry Experiment - MIFlowCyt

    The fundamental tenet of scientific research is that the published results of any study have to be open to independent validation or refutation. The Minimum Information about a Flow Cytometry Experiment (MIFlowCyt) establishes criteria for recording and reporting information about the flow cytometry experiment overview, samples, instrumentation and data analysis. It promotes consistent annotation of clinical, biological and technical issues surrounding a flow cytometry experiment by specifying the requirements for data content and by providing a structured framework for capturing information.

    MIFlowCyt is further described in the MIFlowCyt manuscript and the actual specification can be downloaded from ISAC web pages.

    Here, we have tried to automatically assess information that you have provided about your experiment and calculated a MIFlowCyt compliance score; a value between 0 and 100%. A score of 100% indicates a fully compliant experiment description. Details about the calculation are shown along with links allowing you to provide additional annotation and increase your score accordingly.
