FlowSOM in Cytobank is coming soon!

Sign up now to learn from our scientists and our special guest expert for our next live webinar.

When it is released to all users on Cytobank later this month, the FlowSOM algorithm will speedFlowSOMNovember2018 time to analysis and quality of clustering with self-organizing maps (SOMs) that can reveal how all markers are behaving on all cells, and can detect subsets that might otherwise be missed. If you have a large study with many events per sample or many samples, FlowSOM enables you to include all your data in the analysis, instead of restrictively subsampling. Leveraging the power of the Cytobank cloud, users can scale their compute to run up to 90 million events through FlowSOM in only 3.5 hours More »

Secure and Reliable Storage of Your Clinical Research Data in the Cloud

Screen Shot 2018-09-28 at 11.15.29 AMBy our guest blogger, Ken Stineman*, Ken is Cytobank’s Security Lead.

Cytobank is utilized by most of the top pharmaceutical companies, immunologically-driven biotech companies and many leading academic institutions for analyzing, storing and sharing complex cytometry data generated on their clinical trial specimens. These entities routinely perform rigorous assessments of our security and these complement the testing and evaluation we do in-house. More »

PRESS RELEASE: Cytobank Awarded NIH Grant to Scale its Cloud-based Machine Learning Platform for Accelerating Immunotherapy Translational Research

 Novel data analysis methods will automate biomarker discovery
to predict patient response in clinical trials

Mountain View, Calif. – August 1, 2108 – Cytobank has beenNIHLogo awarded a $1.3M Phase II SBIR grant from the NIH to scale and add more machine learning algorithms to its popular cloud-based informatics platform. In use at many leading academic institutions and the top ten global pharmaceutical companies, Cytobank’s research platform enables faster, more comprehensive analysis of the high-dimensional single cell datasets captured in immunotherapy clinical trials. There are greater than 1,000 active clinical trials for immunotherapies in oncology alone. More »

Webinar Recording: Explore Hidden Cell Populations with cytoclustR

TregsviSNEShahramOur recent Webinar with Dr. Shahram Kordasti and Bioinformatician Thanos Mourikis explored cytoclustR, a new tool they developed with the Cytobank API.

Dr. Kordasti began by reviewing how he set up his experiment pipeline to best identify Treg populations, as outlined in his article featured on the cover of Blood Journal.

Thanos followed with a step-by-step tutorial on how to use cytoclustR with SpadeTreeShahramSPADE in Cytobank to distinguish and report on hidden cell populations that might otherwise go unnoticed with manual gating strategies.

Manage Experiments More Efficiently with Cytobank 6.3.1

storagedetailCytobank’s latest release introduces functionality to help you better manage your account storage and more easily clone experiment features

Improved Storage Management
You can now see how much storage space you are using, and can filter by experiment size in the inbox. Understand quickly which of your experiments may be more resource-intensive, cull unused or duplicate experiments, and keep your storage usage in check.

Improvements to cloning and sharing (learn more)
Select which components from your clonedetail-2experiments to clone. Carry over sharing permissions, compensation matrices separately from gates, panels separately from sample tags, and more. You can also choose whether to give your PI full access when you clone experiments. These features are also fully-supported in the Cytobank API.

Iterate and Refine Faster 
You can now quickly cancel SPADE, viSNE, and CITRUS runs in progress to correct mistakes or refine settings.
