Sysmex Partec to Distribute De Novo Flow Cytometry Software Worldwide

NEW YORK – Sysmex Partec, an affiliate of Sysmex, said Monday that it has signed a distribution agreement with Pasadena, California-based De Novo Software to distribute De Novo's FCS Express 7 software to customers worldwide.

By building FCS Express on its CyFlow Cube 6 V2m device, Görlitz, Germany-based Sysmex Partec believes customers will benefit from an analysis software that allows advanced reporting capabilities and data export options.

CyFlow Cube 6 V2m is a six-parameter flow cytometry instrument equipped with blue and blue-red lasers and four fluorescence detectors. The firm said that the device can be equipped with an autoloading station for high-throughput analysis.

New customers of the flow cytometer will receive a five-year license of FCS Express 7 Flow, Takehiro Wajiki, President and CEO of Sysmex Partec, said in a statement.

"With the flexibility of FCS Express, customers can focus on the results by seamless, easy, and repeatable reporting options or exploit the full potential of the CyFlow Cube with advanced analysis options," Danny Kohler, VP of development at Sysmex Partec, said in a statement.
