Quadrants Made Easy

Flexibility and ease of use no matter how complicated your gating strategy may be

Quadrants are often used in Cytometry to divide plots in four, mutually-exclusive, areas for analysis and results. Managing, gathering statistics, and reporting results from quadrant based analysis can be challenging in other software packages.  FCS Express allow you to easily create, move, and link quadrants so you can get the results you need when you need them. All quadrant based results will update immediately as you move vertices so you can easily interrogate your populations of interest at a click.

Quadrant types

FCS Express supports three different types of quadrants so you can get the results you need. When populations do not fall in perfect 90 degree patterns, Floating quadrants allow you set any vertices independently. Percentile quadrants even let you automatically set quadrants based on data or controls themselves.

Quadrant to Gate linking

One of the many time saving features that FCS Express offers is the ability for you pick and choose which quadrants are linked to gates for downstream analysis. Move from populations to results quickly and easily by only linking the quadrants you need to gates.

Quadrant to Quadrant linking

Quadrants from one plot may be linked to another so when the quadrants on one plot are moved, the quadrants on the other plot will be automatically updated. With FCS Express there is no need to try and match up your control and sample quadrants because they can be automatically linked and updated in real time.
