Cellomics has announced the availability of its yearly software update, HCi 2005. The software update is available for all versions of Cellomics' ArrayScan HCS readers, KineticScan HCS readers, and vHCS Discovery ToolBox platforms.

According to Cellomics, HCi 2005 adds updates and enhancements such as better ease-of-use, improvements to visualization and analysis, multi-user support, and improved speed and robustness of data management.

Beckman Coulter has introduced two software packages and a verification system for the DTX Series Multimode Detectors.

New enhancements include multimode analysis software, accounts and permission software, and multimode check plate, and can be implemented separately or together, Beckman said.

The new software supports all three DTX detection modes — fluorescence, absorbance, and luminescence, Beckman said.
