Product News: BD Debuts New Software for Flow Cytometry Analysis

FlowJo™ software version 10.6 adds new features and integration with BD FACSDiva™ software

20 Jun 2019


BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company), a leading global medical technology company, has announced the availability of FlowJo™ software version 10.6 for flow cytometry data analysis. The software adds new analysis capabilities and enhances integration with BD FACSDiva™ software, making it easier for users to analyze multiple flow cytometry runs and compare data in a single view.

New FlowJo™ software features include:

  • BD FACSDiva™ software integration enables researchers to streamline experimental design and analysis by importing and exporting compensation and gates separating cell populations of interest between BD instruments and FlowJo™ software, helping to reduce redundancies in defining cell populations for additional study or analysis.
  • Optimized spectral compensation enables a spectral analysis workflow allowing detection of fluors across all available channels that can improve data quality and resolution.
  • Additional heat mapping and overlays for kinetics, proliferation, and cell cycle analysis enhance visualization capabilities enabling researchers to gain more insights from their data.
  • Additional options for parameter filters to streamline the selection of parameters of study.
  • Faster t-SNE with automated state-of-the-art adjustments enabling meaningful dimensionality reduction on millions of cells without down sampling.
  • Auto-naming of stat table columns to save time in creating a table of statistics.
  • Auto-save to ensure that data analysis work is regularly saved.

“The launch of this new FlowJo software version highlights our commitment to commercializing innovations that create a more seamless user experience for our customers,” said Jasper Katz, global platform leader, Informatics at BD. “New features of FlowJo software version 10.6 make it easier than ever for researchers to visualize and develop insights from their data, combine data sets, and transfer data back and forth from BD flow cytometry instruments to analysis.”

A live demonstration of the new software will be available at CYTO 2019 at booth 208.
