CoulterFlow.com, a feature-rich online environment for flow cytometrists, offers a variety of functions that help researchers design experiments, compare and identify appropriate reagents and simplify purchasing. New downloadable tools allow scientists to assemble best-in-class antibody panels, link to a customized My Lab page and order from an extensive online catalog.
My Lab, a personalized workspace, allows storage, review and tracking of experiments, and access to previously ordered products. Users can create folders and product lists, and add notes to stored experiments and links to references.
An Antibody Panel Creator helps researchers determine the best reagents and fluorochromes for a particular sample, facilitating reliable test results. Once the reagents and an optical filter are identified, the completed panel and its components can be stored in a My Lab tab or sent to the shopping cart.
Additional features include a Multi-color Reagent Selector that assists in the selection of antibodies and conjugates, allows review of the selection and works in conjunction with the researcher’s My Lab page.
Experiment Design and Spectra Viewer tools can be downloaded to allow users to design experiments, select markers, choose reagents and check the spectral compatibility for the many fluorophores offered by Beckman Coulter. Data can easily be printed or converted to a PDF for reports.
“Working closely with scientists allows us to successfully address their needs in today’s complex research environment,” said Brad Calvin, vice president and general manager for Beckman Coulter Flow Cytometry. “The CoulterFlow.com tools provide a valuable resource for flow cytometrists and demonstrate our commitment to helping researchers achieve high-quality results.”
CoulterFlow.com covers breakthrough research and topical issues and provides interactive tools for flow cytometry. It offers access to a continuously updated and comprehensive line of reagents for cell signaling and immune monitoring, as well as to support reagents, antibodies, fluorophores, and quality control reagents and assay kits.
