Proposed Flow Cytometry Standards (FCS) 3.1 by ISAC

The flow cytometry data file standard provides the specifications needed to completely describe flow cytometry data sets within the confines of the file containing the experimental data.
In 1984, the first Flow Cytometry Standard format for data files was adopted as FCS1.0. This standard was modified in 1990 as FCS2.0 and again in 1997 as FCS3.0.
the next generation Flow Cytometry Standard data file format. FCS3.1. is a minor revision based on suggested improvements from the community. The principal goal of FCS continues to be to provide a uniform file format allowing files created by one type of acquisition hardware and software to be analyzed by another type.
