FlowJo, BD Biosciences form partnership for flow cytometry data management
Single-cell data analysis software provider FlowJo and flow cytometry system maker BD Biosciences have established a partnership.
Single-cell data analysis software provider FlowJo (Ashland, OR) and flow cytometry system maker BD Biosciences (Franklin Lakes, NJ) have established a strategic relationship to integrate BD's flow cytometry data acquisition software with FlowJo's data analysis platform for the research market.
The integrated software would enable upload of acquired data from BD flow cytometers running BD FACSDiva software directly to FlowJo Enterprise, paving the way for user-friendly data management and provenance tracking for researchers using flow cytometry. FlowJo will enable researchers to initiate pipelined data analysis directly from the instrument, linking flow cytometry data acquisition to final results and reports.
FlowJo and BD demonstrated the integration prototype at CYTO 2015: the 30th Congress of the International Society for Advancement of Cytometry, held June 26-30, 2015, in Glasgow, Scotland.
