User Stories: Erica Alvendia and her experience with Cytobank 4.2 release

Welcome to Cytobank User Stories, a series featuring interviews with Cytobank users on their research, scientific vision, and use of fluorescence and mass cytometry.

This time we interview Erica Alvendia, a Research Associate at Primity Bio in Fremont, California.  We asked Erica to share with us her favorite features from our 4.2 release and to describe how this release has helped to improve her scientific workflow.

What are you excited about in science? What is your scientific vision?

Erica Alvendia
Research Associate at Primity Bio

Science has such a broad subject range that there is always something new to learn. The knowledge you can obtain seems endless and that’s what I find exciting. More specifically, I’m fascinated with reading up on the pathogenesis of various diseases (especially the rare ones) and learning about the different treatments available for them. With that said, it’s my scientific vision to find treatment options for diseases that have none. Primarily any disease that results in either a physical or mental disability.

viSNE now available on Cytobank

The Cytobank team has been working diligently to provide top tier analysis solutions for our users; viSNE in Cytobank is our most recent addition and we are very excited about what it has to offer.

What is viSNE? And how does it work?

viSNE is a tool for reducing high-parameter data down to two dimensions, making it easy for scientists to not only visually identify interesting and rare biological subsets, but also gate single cell events across different samples.

FCS File Quality Control Validation

With the recent rise in cytometry data post-processing (e.g., normalization, debarcoding, concatenation), we at Cytobank have seen many FCS files that do not conform to the ISAC specification, and some of these variations in file writing may lead to downstream errors. As a result, we’ve implemented a Quality Control validator, built into Cytobank, that determines the compliance of your FCS files compared with the specification.

Introducing the Cytobank Webinar Series

Greetings Cytobank community!

We have launched a weekly webinar series designed to give you an overview of Cytobank functionality, where you will have the option to ask your burning Cytobank questions. We’ll present a brief overview of the platform in slide format, and then walk you through the analysis of an actual dataset using Cytobank. You’ll have the opportunity to privately ask your questions via the webinar chat box and we will address them at the end. The series will be on an alternating weekly schedule where we rotate covering basic analysis and advanced topics such as SPADE.

View the schedule of upcoming webinars on our Upcoming Meetings page.
