AirLab: a cloud-based platform to manage and share antibody-based single-cell research


Catena, Raúl; Özcan, Alaz; Jacobs, Andrea; Chevrier, Stephane; Bodenmiller, Bernd (2016). AirLab: a cloud-based platform to manage and share antibody-based single-cell research. Genome Biology, 17(1):142.

Abstract

Single-cell analysis technologies are essential tools in research and clinical diagnostics. These methods include flow
cytometry, mass cytometry, and other microfluidics-based technologies. Most laboratories that employ these methods
maintain large repositories of antibodies. These ever-growing collections of antibodies, their multiple conjugates, and
the large amounts of data generated in assays using specific antibodies and conditions makes a dedicated software
solution necessary. We have developed AirLab, a cloud-based tool with web and mobile interfaces, for the
organization of these data. AirLab streamlines the processes of antibody purchase, organization, and storage, antibody
panel creation, results logging, and antibody validation data sharing and distribution. Furthermore, AirLab enables
inventory of other laboratory stocks, such as primers or clinical samples, through user-controlled customization. Thus,
AirLab is a mobile-powered and flexible tool that harnesses the capabilities of mobile tools and cloud-based
technology to facilitate inventory and sharing of antibody and sample collections and associated validation data.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
