De Novo Software launches upgrade to FCS Express for flow and image
31 Jan 2011
De Novo Software has released a new version of FCS Express,
its flagship product for flow cytometry analysis in clinical and
pharmaceutical research laboratories.
David Novo, De Novo Software's president, said: "The new version
was completely rewritten to support multi-core computer
architecture, advanced image cytometry analysis and plate-based
analysis for both flow and image cytometry. We incorporated hundreds
of suggestions from users to maintain FCS Express' status as the
best-of-breed cytometry data analysis software."
FCS Express is predominant for results reporting in clinical flow
cytometry and the new release is expected to be well received in the
clinical market. "We focused on improving ease-of-use and addressing
requests for even more flexible and detailed reporting," said Tanya
Tolmachoff, Director of Sales and Marketing at De Novo Software.
In addition, De Novo Software invested significant resources to
expand their market footprint and customer's capability for
processing Image Cytometry data by announcing the release of the
first version of FCS Express 4 Image Cytometry, developed
specifically for advanced analysis and reporting of Cellular Imaging
"De Novo Software believes that Flow Cytometry and Cellular
Imaging are merging and have great potential together. Image
cytometry can benefit significantly from the advanced analysis tools
developed for multi-parametric flow data," said Michael Sjaastad,
Director of Business Development at De Novo Software. "New tools
enable High-content analysis of image data for both research and
screening. We added features to FCS Express that make working with
images simple and improve results."
De Novo Software distributes software directly and through
strategic partners, and will expand their distribution network in
the imaging market.
With the new software release, De Novo Software deployed a new
website with detailed training and support features including
on-line tutorials. The software can be purchased and downloaded from
the website, along with a 30-day free trial. Existing customers will
be offered upgrade options.
FCS Express is compatible with data from many instrument
platforms and data file formats. The user interface works similarly
to common software packages, such as the MS Office suite, and is
easy to learn.
