Antibody CSV files can be exported from the OneLambda Fusion and Immucor MatchIt! software. These files contain bead specificities and MFI values, and these files are converted to a standard HAML format when they are uploaded to the IHIW database.
Although the Antibody CSV files can be opened in Excel, please note that re-saving the file (even if you didn’t make any changes) will change the format of the file, which can no longer be converted. It’s best to upload the unmodified file that is exported from the software.
The output of the Fusion (OneLambda) software can be made in this way:
- Create the Report Format
Navigate to ‘Reports’ -> ‘Tools’ -> ‘Setup Data Export’.
Select these options:
- Patient – Patient ID
- Sample – Sample ID
- Session – Run Date
- Catalog – Catalog ID
- Catalog Detail – Bead ID
- Catalog Detail – Specificity
- Well Detail – MFI (Raw Data)
- Well – NC2 BeadID
- Well – PC2 BeadID
- Well detail – Rxn
Save the setup.
2. Export the Report
Select the data you wish to export.
Select ‘Tools’ -> ‘Export data’. Select the export format you already created and saved. Save the file as CSV.
The Immucor MatchIt! Software has a built-in Predefined IHIW HAML export format.
When exporting your data, select [Predefined Exports] and find a HAML option, which should create a .csv file.
Upload this .csv file to the Workshop Database.
