Because Cytobank is web-based, we can help you share your flow data with your advisor, labmates, and collaborators – all around the world! By default, your data is private and visible only to you, but if you do decide to share, the easiest way to share an experiment is to give another user full access. But what if you need to share dozens of experiments with the same three people? Or what if you don’t want to give full access to someone but still want them to see your Illustrations?
A Cytobank project enables you to share multiple experiments with the same group of people. A project also allows you to set project-wide permission levels that let you determine whether or not people can make new illustrations and whether or not they can clone the experiments contained within the project.
Are you working with a collaborator who needs to see your raw data? Are you looking for help from a Cytobank administrator relating to experiment analysis?
Don’t bother opening your email client, searching for an email address, and digging through folders for your flow files. Instead, use the easy sharing features built into Cytobank. Once you have uploaded files to your account, they can be easily shared with others from within the Cytobank interface.
As always, your experiment is visible only to you until you actively choose to give permission to another user to see it. When you do choose to share an experiment, follow these easy steps:
At Cytobank, we do cytometry in the “cloud”. What does that mean and how can that help you?

Recently, some folks were asking on the Purdue Cytometry list about cytometry data analysis on the iPad. We’re happy to say that Cytobank does a great job of enabling you to view your cytometry data on the iPad and iPhone. We’ve just rolled out some changes that make it even easier.

Seeing the words “internet” and “experiment data” in the same sentence might give you pause to wonder, “Are my data safe on Cytobank?”
The answer is a resounding “Yes!”
From the minute you upload your data to Cytobank, you control the level of access that other users have to your data. By default, any data you upload are only visible to you.
In the beginning, we wanted software that would give us a “big picture” view of our flow cytometry experiments. We initially created a software tool to make heatmaps using flow cytometry files. However, as we shared analyses with each other, we realized that this big picture view wasn’t enough. We also needed to explore the single cell data to derive deeper meaning from our flow cytometry experiments. In short, we wanted to have it both ways: we needed dynamic summaries of experiment results linked to the underlying single cell data, so that rare cell subsets and heterogeneous populations were not overlooked.
