Name standardCurves.txt
Type combined
Schema Version 3.34
Description The standard curve template defines and annotates the standard curves derived from the control sample's concentration and MFI to interpret the experiment sample's MFI in terms of its analyte concentration. This template requires that the standard curve be always new, while the experiment can be new or pre-defined. The standard curve is the key the template and must be unique.
Template ColumnRequiredDescription
Standard Curve ID True The Standard Curve user defined ID is an identifier chosen by the data provider to refer to a Standard Curve. This ID may be referenced by other data records (e.g. MBAA results). The user defined ID is not shared.
Formula False The formula used to calculate the standard curve from the input data.
Analyte Reported False The molecule or entity being measured. 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.
Assay ID False The assay ID represents the plate or array ID where standard curves, control samples, and experiment samples were collected and assayed. This ID will be used to link standard curves, control samples, and experiment samples results.
Assay Group ID False The assay group ID represents a collection of plates or arrays. This ID may be used to link collections of standard curves, control samples, and experiment samples results.
Lower Limit False A number is expected.
Lower Limit Unit False Lower limit unit established by the standard curve.
Upper Limit False A number is expected.
Upper Limit Unit False Upper limit value established by the standard curve.
ImmPort Template? False The format of the result file depends on the assay type. ImmPort supports results templates (MBAA_Results.txt) for some of the commonly used immunological assay methods. These template facilitate the sharing and re-use of results data in a standard format. If the result file is the ImmPort results template (strongly recommended by NIAID DAIT), choose 'Yes' from the drop down list and do not include a file name in the "Result File Name" column. If the result file is not an ImmPort results template, choose 'No' from the drop down list and include a file name in the "Result File Name" column.
Result File Name False Enter the full result file name including file extension. The file size name limit is 240 characters.
Additional Result File Names False See the ImmPort Data Upload Guide for details on where MBAA bead level files are stored depending on the assay platform used. Separate file names by a semi-colon (;). The file size name limit is 240 characters.
Experiment ID True The experiment identifier must be stored in ImmPort or in the experiments.txt template.
Study ID False An experiment may be linked to a single study.
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 (;).
Name False The experiment name is not referenced by other data records.
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.
