For ExAmp Chemistry (patterned flowcells) - Clustering means cluster formation using Isothermal Amplification.
(In theory only on the occupied nanowell, in practice, especially at low loading concentrations a few neighbours may join in too...).

Have a read about ExAmp & Hiseq4000:
Thank you. I did my sequencing on old platform HiSeq 2500.
