writeFCS is a Matlab function for creating FCS files specified by Data File Standard for Flow Cytometry version 3.1. The function is designed to be easy to use and to be highly forgiving in terms of accuracy of the user-supplied input data. It only requires the source dataset to automatically create an FCS file with optimal settings. It also provides the opportunity to manually specify the TEXT section of the FCS file. For the required parts of the TEXT section, the function parses the user-supplied data and corrects them automatically to comply with the FCS version 3.1 data standard. It gives warnings, when conflict in compliance is detected. Non-required parts of TEXT are still exported but they are not checked for compliance.
