RNA from Flow Cytometry Sorting

I’m looking at how best to track all the sample types we get for genomic analysis. So for example we get a specimen that is RNA from Flow Cytometry sorted cells. So the Specimen is RNA. Then I need to figure out how best to then track that the RNA came from whole blood that was sorted via flow and what specific cell type the RNA was extracted from. Any folks already doing this kind of granular tracking?

We don’t, @jliddil1. What’s the community doing? Is there anything systematic out there? And how does it work with the use cases?

The only way that I know of recording the whole blood specimen to the RNA analyte specimen is via the FACT_RELATIONSHIP table
