EUGENE, OR — Aug. 4, 2020 — Thermo Fisher announces it will offer FCS Express software capability with its Invitrogen™ Attune™ NxT acoustic flow cytometer system.

The Attune NxT acoustic focusing cytometer is able to acquire data at rates 10x faster than traditional flow cytometers therefore generating large high parameter data sets. Partnering with FCS Express Software from De Novo Software allows our customers to easily compare results across samples, access advanced tools ( i.e. SPADE, Cluster analysis, tSNE) for complex analysis, and simply produce publication quality graphics at the time of instrument installation. Attune NxT customers will find the FCS express software to be easily integrated into their lab as FCS express uses a similar interface. 

The Attune NxT flow cytometer is one of the fastest flow cytometers on the market and adding FCS express software allows data analysis to be just as quick. The pairing of instrument and software offers the customer one complete workflow from sample to final result. With the purchase of a new instrument, Thermo Fisher Scientific will offer a one-year renewable license to all non-commercial Attune NxT customers at no charge. Existing Attune NxT customers will be able to purchase a one-year license from Thermo Fisher Scientific.
