'FCS Express is the most intuitive flow cytometry analysis package that I have ever used...."

FCS Express now supports Picture Plots which allow the user to import images for analysis. Picture Plots display the imported image and allow the user to gate directly on the image and perform down any downstream analysis. Just a few of the functions available are listed below:

  • Gating
  • Formatting
  • Tokens
  • Overlays
  • Backgating

Cellular Image
Nuclear Image
Cellular and Nuclear Image Data Overlayed on 2D Dot Plot


  • Picture Plots can be gated upon and represented as 1D or 2D Plots.
  • Gating statistics can be displayed as tokens.
  • Plots are fully formattable.
An example of backgating from a 2D plot to a cellular image and displaying gated cells from a nuclear image. Notice how tokens are being calculated for each gated population.
