Flow Cytometry SoftwareBREA, Calif, Nov. 25, 2009 – Beckman Coulter Inc. announces the introduction of its Kaluza flow cytometry analysis software, a package that greatly reduces processing and analysis times, allowing researchers more time to explore their data. The software features new tools that simplify the management of multiple complex data sets, allows visualization of high-content data in different spatial dimensions on a single plot, and provides real-time analysis of high-content flow cytometry files.
A dynamic workspace facilitates automatic organization of plots and combines with a zoom in/zoom out feature to provide an intuitive environment for data exploration. Auto-Layout intelligently reconfigures the workspace and minimizes the clicks required to create and maintain an analysis.
Data replay is made quick and easy with automatic loading of the original plots, gates, and colors from files with embedded analysis protocols. A radial menu provides fast access to all plot and region editing features.
Tree plots easily represent data that typically requires dozens of plots, gates and regions. Each phenotype can be used as a gate for further data exploration. Radar plots provide a multidimensional view of data without drawing a single gate. These plots reveal relevant and rare populations that are typically not seen using traditional bi-variate plots and gating strategies.
The software will readily scale to meet the expanding requirements of future instrumentation. Patented technology enables remarkably fast refresh rates for even large, complex data sets. The package works with the majority of FCS-compliant files and with most cytometers. It can be used with both network and stand-alone computers and is offered for research use only. Functional examples of Kaluza data analysis can be viewed at www.kaluzasoftware.com, where a free, fully functional trial version of the software is available.
