Import an existing compensation matrix from another Cytobank experiment

To import a compensation matrix from an existing Cytobank Experiment, access the Compensation page by clicking the Compensation tab on the experiment level navigation bar. If the current setting is Uncompensated, the Compensation button will not appear in the navigation bar. In this case, please click Actions -> Edit compensation to access the Compensation Editor. 


Click the Import tab on the page-specific navigation bar. 


Under the Experiment tab, choose the experiment from which you want to import the matrix, and click Import Compensation. If compatible matrices are available for import, you will see a message, “Successfully imported the compensation matrix [name of compensation matrix] from the selected experiment. All the matrices will be copied to your current experiment and appear in the list of compensations that you can select as the experiment-wide compensation. You can click on the name of an imported compensation matrix to adjust the values as needed. 


After importing a compensation matrix from an existing experiment, users can apply one imported matrix by selecting a compensation from the Experiment compensation dropdown list on the navigation bar. If there are existing illustration figures and gates in the experiment, users may want to update the existing figures and re-draw gates.
