10.6.1 Exhaustive Release Notes

Tags:

Updates Dongles now authenticate FlowJo with other USB devices attached concurrently. Parameter short name ($P#S) keywords now utilized in more locations, such as Multi-Graph Color Maps. This change replaces many instances of the less informative parameter name ($P#N) keywords. Appropriate default scaling for BioRad ZE5 cytometers enabled. Known Issues Trouble when changes to multi-selected plots… Read more »

10.6.1 Release Notes

10.6 Exhaustive Release Notes

Tags:

Updates Spectral Compensation option available for compensating appropriately collected data within the Compensation Wizard. Platform overlays for: Kinetics, Cell-Cycle, and Proliferation now available within the Layout Editor. Auto-Save workspace feature – new preference setting allows researchers to automatically save their analysis at a customizable time interval. This popular feature has been requested by many researchers, and we heard… Read more »

10.6 Release Notes

Tags:

New Features: Spectral Compensation now available for compensating data collected with an overdetermined system (more detectors than fluorescent probes), within the Compensation Wizard. Figures generated by Platforms in FlowJo v10 can now be overlaid! Yes, you read that correctly, you can now overlay: Kinetics, Cell-Cycle, and Proliferation platform figures within the Layout Editor in FlowJo…. Read more »

Diva Integration

Tags:

Since 1994, Flow Cytometrists have been using FlowJo to analyze data collected on BD cytometers to create statistics and figures pivotal to publications on immune subsets. Until now, FCS files were the only data from FACSDiva™ that could be imported into FlowJo. Now, with FlowJo v10.6 and newer, FACSDiva™ experiments can be imported into FlowJo… Read more »

Platform Overlays

Tags:

Starting in FlowJo v10.6, platform figures (Kinetics, Cell Cycle, and Proliferation) can be overlaid in the Layout Editor by dragging and dropping the platform nodes on top of one another. This greatly aids in the comparison of results produced by the various modeling platforms, and makes for an excellent graph to show at your next lab… Read more »

Multigraph Color Mapping

Tags:

Creating multiple color maps for a single bivariate plot is often useful in analyzing high parameter datasets. This process used to be quite tedious and time consuming – no longer! In FlowJo researchers have the option to create a multigraph color-map in just a few clicks. In the Layout Editor, simply right click on a… Read more »

Auto-Save

Tags:

Back by popular demand, Auto-Save is now available in FlowJo v10.6 and newer. By default FlowJo v10 will not automatically save workspaces. To turn this functionality on, simply visit the Workspace section of the preferences and choose a time frame for the auto-save to cycle (in minutes). This will keep saving the workspace, automatically, wherever… Read more »

Spectral Compensation

Tags:

In FlowJo v10.6 there is now a check-box labelled Spectral at the top of the compensation wizard to enable spectral compensation functionality. Alongside that check-box are options to choose weights per fluorescence detector and to optimize the weighting used. To utilize spectral compensation, you will first need data that contains more detectors than fluorescent probes (an overdetermined system)… Read more »
