Schema Version 3.36
Description The ELISPOT experiment sample template defines and annotates the assay results for a sample by linking sample, experiment, and results together. More than one analyte's results per assayed sample may be reported by copying the group of columns 'Analyte', 'Number Of Spots Per Well', and 'Cell number per well Value', 'Cell number per well Unit' needed to describe each assay result. The experiment samples template allows you to describe to ImmPort new experiments and biological samples or link experiments and biological samples stored in ImmPort with assay results. There is considerable flexibility in linking ImmPort content with new content in the templates and there are some general guidelines to remember. All of the experiment sample IDs in the template must always be unique in the template and must not already be stored in ImmPort. The biological sample and the experiment in the template may be new or they both may be new. If the biological sample or the experiment is new, then you must complete the required columns to describe them. When defining a new experiment or biological sample, it is only necessary to complete the required descriptive columns once per experiment or biological sample. The column header names in the templates indicate to what is being described and the '.xls' spreadsheet versions use color codes to indicate what is being described.
Template ColumnRequiredDescription
Study ID False An experiment and biological sample may be linked to a single study.
Expsample ID True The experiment sample user defined ID is an identifier chosen by the data provider to refer to this sample. This ID may be referenced by other data records (e.g. assay results). The user defined ID is not shared.
Expsample Name False The experiment sample name is a display name that is available when the data is shared, but it is not referenced by other data.
Expsample Description False Describe important characteristics of the sample being assayed.
Reagent ID(s) False One or more identifiers can be entered. Separate identifiers by semicolon (;). The reagent identifier(s) must be stored in ImmPort or in the reagents.txt template.
Treatment ID(s) False One or more identifiers can be entered. Separate identifiers by semicolon (;). The treatment identifier(s) must be stored in ImmPort or in the treatments.txt template.
Additional Result File Names False Separate file names by a semi-colon (;). The file size name limit is 240 characters.
Biosample ID True The biological sample user defined ID is an identifier chosen by the data provider to refer to a sample. This ID may be referenced by other data records (e.g. experiment sample). The user defined ID is not shared.
Type False The sample types are adopted from Uberon, Cell and CHEBI ontologies.
Subtype False Enter a sample type that is of finer resolution than the standard sample types provided. If the 'Biological Sample Type' is 'Other', then the sample subtype must be entered.
Biosample Name False The biological sample name is a display name that is available when the data is shared, but it is not referenced by other data.
Biosample Description False The biological sample description is used to describe details of the sample not captured in other columns.
Subject ID False Please enter either a subject user defined ID or ImmPort accession for the subject from which the sample was derived. A single subject record is permitted.
Planned Visit ID False The link to a study's planned visit provides temporal context for a sample's derivation from a subject.
Study Time Collected False Study time collected describes the time value for when a sample was derived from a subject.
Study Time Collected Unit False The time units are standard terms recommended by the HIPC Standards group.
Study Time T0 Event False The time zero event refers to the study milestone upon which time is based.
Study Time T0 Event Specify False Enter a time zero event if 'Other' is selected in column 'Study Time T0 Event'.
Experiment ID True The experiment identifier must be stored in ImmPort or in the experiments.txt template. The experiment serves as the parent entity to bind assay results of a similar type together.
Protocol ID(s) False Please enter either a protocol user defined ID or ImmPort accession for a protocol that describes how the sample was derived and prepared. One or more identifiers can be entered per sample. Separate identifiers by semicolon (;).
Experiment Name False The experiment name is a display name that is available when the data is shared, but it is not referenced by other data.
Experiment Description False The experiment description is used to describe details of the experiment not captured in other columns.
Measurement Technique False The measurement technique describes the assay method.
Result Separator Column False This pseudo column separates meta data from results.
Analyte Reported True The molecule or entity being measured. The list of values displays common immunology gene symbol and gene symbol terms on the left and their preferred term on the right, each component separated by a semi-colon. Please select a name from the list provided if the name matches your name or enter a name if there is not an appropriate one provided. This name is visible when the result is shared.
Spot Number Reported True The number of spots generated by the reporting assay reagent.
Cell Number Reported True The number of live cells assayed per well.
Comments False Comments captures additional descriptive information that is added to the result.
