Simple to use

Attune NxT software employs a menu system that presents the features you need when you need them without a lot of scrolling and clicking. The customization tab allows you to pre-define settings for plots, gates, experiments, reports, and overlays. To simplify experimental setup, the preview screen shows all plot combinations instantaneously, allowing you to easily add them to the experiment workspace. Compensation is automated or user-defined and can be set up using a compensation guide.

Speed increases productivity

Attune NxT Software has been designed to maximize data analysis efficiency. It uses a Windows™ 7 64-bit system to provide fast refresh rates for large data sets of up to 20 million events created by multi-laser, multi-parameter instrumentation. The software displays updated plots in real time, as you are making your adjustments, which means you spend less time analyzing data and more time on your research.

Easy instrument operation

Attune NxT Software automates many system maintenance and QC routines, which helps to ensure that your data are reliable, the instrument is performing as designed, and minimizes the amount of time you have to devote to instrument maintenance.

Intuitive software interface with familiar workflow. The user interface is divided into 4 panels for simple use: (A) the Top panel uses ribbons and tabs for most functions (similar to Microsoft™ Office™ products); (B) the Collection panel presents an easy setup window to acquire data; (C) the Experiment Workspace panel offers display of plots and statistics; and (D) the Experiment Explorer panel makes it easy to manage samples and data files.


Improved ease of operation and maintenance

Automated processes make startup, cleaning between samples and shutdown as easy as a push of a button.
