I have tried using the read.flowSet() command to read in multiple .fcs files but I keep getting the following error:

all <- read.flowSet(files=NULL,path=".",pattern=".fcs")
Error in asMethod(object) :
  The individual flowFrames do not contain identical stains.
In addition: Warning message:
In ucol == sort(colNames[, 1]) :
  longer object length is not a multiple of shorter object length

The files all follow the same format, only differences being the data and number of cells. They have the same row and column names despite the error message.

flowFrame object 'Unstained.fcs'
with 16462 cells and 14 observables:

On the contrary, I am able to read in the files individually using the command below:

unstained1 <- read.FCS("Unstained.fcs",transformation="linearize")

I would like to perform probability binning but it requires a flowSet to be created, yet I cannot surpass this step. Any suggestions would be a great help! Thanks in advance.
