Transcript:
Flow Cytometry allows you to explore...
biological processes at a single cell level,
but generates large quantities of data...
that need to be analyzed.
FCS Express helps you...
work through your data quickly...
by providing a suite of powerful of functionality...
that allows you to easily...
turn your raw flow cytometry data...
into results, all within a modern user interface,
similar to the Microsoft Office suite.
FCS Express combines state-of-the-art...
data analysis tools...
with unparalleled reporting and presentation capabilities.
In typical flow cytometry software,
you create your presentations...
by copying and pasting your plots,
one at a time, over and over again.
With FCS Express, a single click of a button...
can create PowerPoint presentations and PDF documents...
that look exactly like your analysis.
In other flow software,
you may be done analyzing your data,
yet have to continue working for several minutes,
or even hours in Excel,
creating bar charts and scatter plots...
in order to properly understand your experiment.
In FCS Express,
this analysis is done instantly and automatically.
Ask yourself:
Is copying and pasting plots or stacked boxes to PowerPoint...
and then manually aggregating data in Excel,
is that really a worthwhile use of my time?
We at De Novo Software think not...
and suggest you try switching to FCS Express...
and putting your time to better use.
FCS Express is used by thousands of researchers...
around the world...
to publish in the field's most prestigious journals.
As the only third party flow cytometry data analysis software...
registered with the FDA...
for in vitro diagnostic use,
FCS Express is used by hundreds of clinicians...
to analyze thousands of patient samples every day.
FCS Express also completely supports...
your 21 CFR Part 11 compliance system,
with sophisticated audit trails, security,
and electronic signatures.
FCS Express runs on Microsoft Windows,
and can read data from any flowcytometer,
even those that acquire data using a Machintosh.
In FCS Express,
you place your objects on a page...
and then manipulate them...
just as you would in PowerPoint.
Most of the familiar features used in PowerPoint,
including moving, resizing, aligning,
grouping, copying and pasting to the clipboard,
ordering, and entering text,
work in an identical manner in FCS Express.
There are also several new enhancements...
around page organization in FCS Express...
designed specifically for those of you...
and you know who you are...
who use complex analysis techniques...
with plots and gating schemes...
that span multiple pages.
Try viewing multiple pages at the same time...
or use our new tabbed page view...
that let you quickly jump around...
to different pages in your analysis.
Also, try FCS Express' new navigators...
which let you easily visualize the contents of your analysis.
FCS Express also supports unlimited multi-level undo,
giving you the flexibility to adjust your analysis,
without worrying about doing something wrong.
FCS Express supports standard elliptical,
rectangular, polygon, free form and 1D gates.
In addition, there are well gates for high content analysis,
as well as cell number gates to select specific cells for gating.
FCS Express also supports standard floating...
and percentile quadrants on two dimensional plots,
as well as markers on one dimensional plots.
You can visualize your data in many different ways.
Try our dot plots,
density and contour plots,
with and without outliers,
surface plots,
histograms,
and also heat maps.
Have you been using overlays in your analysis?
Good news: with FCS Express,
you can add as many 1D and 2D plot overlays as you like.
FCS Express continues to support specialized tools,
optimized for flow cytometry.
Is your current DNA analysis software a bit convoluted?
Break the cycle: FCS Express provides sophisticated modeling...
for cell cycle and proliferation analysis.
Model results change instantly...
as you change your data.
In addition, FCS Express has kinetics plots...
to support calcium flux and other kinetics analysis.
FCS Express supports all the statistics you need...
for your flow cytometry analysis.
FCS Express textboxes can contain statistics...
that automatically update as you change your analysis.
Setting this up cannot be easier!
Simply drag a gate into any textbox on the layout,
select a statistic,
and instantly show this statistic from that gate.
Have you been wishing for a summary stats table?
The textboxes in FCS Express...
allow you to get statistics...
from plots from within any page in your analysis,
and then combine them into a easy-to-read summary.
In addition to your typical cytometry statistics,
you can create your own statistics.
The statistic highlighted here is a custom created ratio,
of the CD4 positive events in the upper left quadrant...
and the CD8 positive events in the lower right quadrant.
Even though this is a calculated value,
It still updates as the quadrants change...
or as the data files change.
FCS Express supports powerful batch processing functionality,
that allows you to summarize the results...
from many different data files in a matter of seconds.
See how FCS Express has automatically...
summarized an entire experiment,
into a single spreadsheet.
With FCS Express,
no amount of data is too intimidating.
FCS Express can also export your data...
and create PDF files,
Word documents,
and Excel spreadsheets.
Looking to impress your social network?
FCS Express also supports collaboration.
You can publish your layouts to the internet...
where they can be read by the free FCS Express Reader.
You can also host online meetings...
with any other FCS Express user...
right from within FCS Express,
using our new collaboration tool.
FCS Express continues to automate those menial tasks...
that other analysis packages still force you to do,
leaving you free to do you do best -- science.
Of course, we have only touched the tip of the iceberg of...
all the features that FCS Express has to offer.
Please try our free 30-day demo...
and see our other videos for more details about specific features.
