TermDefinition
Material Source NameThe unique identification name of the source from which the material sample is derived. Its value is used as the value for source name in ISA-TAB-Nano Study Files, thereby linking the ISA-TAB-Nano Material File and the Study File.
Material NameThe unique identification name for the sample and its different components. This name is used to identify or reference the different components across the ISA-TAB-Nano files.
Manufacturer Lot IdentifierA distinctive numeric, alpha, or alpha-numeric identification code assigned by the manufacturer or distributor. It is assigned to a specific quantity of manufactured material or product that is produced in a manner that is expected to render it homogeneous.
Material DescriptionA textual description of the material sample.
Material SynthesisA text or a single term description of how the material was made.
Material Design RationaleA text description for the underlying design rationale is the property, process or phenomenon taken into consideration when formulating a nanoparticle or other substance in order to achieve the intended use of the formulation.
Material Intended Application The application for which a drug, nanoparticle or other substance is formulated and tested (e.g., MRI).
Term Accession NumberIdentification number of a term selected from an ontology or a controlled vocabulary, if the term is entered as a value in material intended application, material type, material chemical name, characteristic [ ], material linkage type [ ], material data file type [ ], unit or factor value [ ] columns.
Term Source REFThe name which identifies the source from where a term is selected and entered in ISA-TAB-Nano study files. This name should match one of the names entered in the term source name field in the ISA-TAB-Nano Investigation File.
Material TypeOne or more terms used to classify the type of material sample. Multiple terms are entered as a semicolon-delimited list.
Term Accession NumberIdentification number of a term selected from an ontology or a controlled vocabulary, if the term is entered as a value in material intended application, material type, material chemical name, characteristic [ ], material linkage type [ ], material data file type [ ], unit or factor value [ ] columns.
Term Source REFThe name which identifies the source from where a term is selected and entered in ISA-TAB-Nano study files. This name should match one of the names entered in the term source name field in the ISA-TAB-Nano Investigation File.
Material Chemical NameThe chemical name of the material or its constituent material.
Term Accession NumberIdentification number of a term selected from an ontology or a controlled vocabulary, if the term is entered as a value in material intended application, material type, material chemical name, characteristic [ ], material linkage type [ ], material data file type [ ], unit or factor value [ ] columns.
Term Source REFThe name which identifies the source from where a term is selected and entered in ISA-TAB-Nano study files. This name should match one of the names entered in the term source name field in the ISA-TAB-Nano Investigation File.
CharacteristicsAn attribute of the sample and its constituents. The term for each characteristics [ ] attribute is written within brackets (for example, Characteristics [size], etc.). Nominal particle characteristics (or vendor supplied) should be included in the Material File as characteristics. Experimentally determined characteristics should be included in the Assay File.
Term Accession NumberThe name which identifies the source from where a term is selected and entered in ISA-TAB-Nano study files. This name should match one of the names entered in the term source name field in the ISA-TAB-Nano Investigation File.
Term Source REFThe name which identifies the source from where a term is selected and entered in ISA-TAB-Nano study files. This name should match one of the names entered in the term source name field in the ISA-TAB-Nano Investigation File.
UnitThe standard of measurement used if the values for characteristic [ ] columns are quantitative and dimensional. If the term for unit is taken from an ontology/controlled vocabulary, then its term accession number and the term source REF should be defined in the ISA-TAB-Nano Material File.
Term Accession NumberIdentification number of a term selected from an ontology or a controlled vocabulary, if the term is entered as a value in material intended application, material type, material chemical name, characteristic [ ], material linkage type [ ], material data file type [ ], unit or factor value [ ] columns.
Term Source REFThe name which identifies the source from where a term is selected and entered in ISA-TAB-Nano study files. This name should match one of the names entered in the term source name field in the ISA-TAB-Nano Investigation File.
Material ConstituentThe material name for each of the components within a material. The names should be obtained from the entries for the “Material Name” field. If there is a "Material Linkage Type", then only the two linked components should be specified.
Material Linkage TypeThe type of linkage present in a nanoparticle sample (for example, attachment, encapsulation, entrapment etc.). If the linkage type is an entrapment or encapsulation, the Material Type column can specify whether the constituent is entrapped or encapsulated.
Term Accession NumberIdentification number of a term selected from an ontology or a controlled vocabulary, if the term is entered as a value in material intended application, material type, material chemical name, characteristic [ ], material linkage type [ ], material data file type [ ], unit or factor value [ ] columns.
Term Source REFThe name which identifies the source from where a term is selected and entered in ISA-TAB-Nano study files. This name should match one of the names entered in the term source name field in the ISA-TAB-Nano Investigation File.
Material Data FileThe name of files (e.g. Image, Structures file) containing information about the material sample. There can be only one file name per cell.
Material Data File TypeThe name that defines the type of the Material File (e.g. image, graph).
Term Accession NumberIdentification number of a term selected from an ontology or a controlled vocabulary, if the term is entered as a value in material intended application, material type, material chemical name, characteristic [ ], material linkage type [ ], material data file type [ ], unit or factor value [ ] columns.
Term Source REFThe name which identifies the source from where a term is selected and entered in ISA-TAB-Nano study files. This name should match one of the names entered in the term source name field in the ISA-TAB-Nano Investigation File.
Material Data File DescriptionA textual description providing additional information on the Material File.
