FCS Express works hard to turn your flow cytometry data into results, so you don't have to. FCS Express can rapidly analyze vast amounts of data, with industry leading flow cytometry tools, but we recognize that is only the beginning of the scientific journey. After the basic analysis is complete, you must compile spreadsheets comparing your data to previous experiments, create bar charts and scatter plots to show these differences and create presentations to show your work to others. FCS Express seamlessly takes you from your FACS data files to flexible overviews of your entire experiment.

Why Switch to FCS Express

Do you currently use free flow cytometry software such as WinMDI, MFI, or even another for cost analysis package? If so, are these software packages giving you everything you need to turn your data sets into publication quality reports in a quick and efficient way? Is your time valuable? It may be time to think about using FCS Express for your flow cytometry analysis needs if you are wasting time moving between different softwares trying to get to your results..

FCS Express will allow you to turn any size data set into stunning, well organized reports, or Microsoft Officeexports in a short amount of time. See for yourself with our introductory video below.
