Beckman Coulter Inc. introduces its Kaluza Flow Cytometry Analysis Software, a package that greatly reduces processing and analysis times. Kaluza Software features simplify 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, which 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 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.
Radar plots provide a multi-dimensional 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.
This software will readily scale to meet the expanding requirements. Patented technology enables remarkably fast refresh rates for even large, complex data sets. The package works with most cytometers. It can be used with both network and stand-alone computers and is offered for research use only.
