The Kaluza flow analysis software application is produced by Beckman Coulter. The focus of the application is users who produce large quantities of data. Kaluza is a software solution that is capable of performing real-time flow cytometry analysis of up to 10 million cell events.
There are several usability features in Kaluza that allow the user to do more data analyzing than clicking their mouse. Kaluza includes a radial menu that lessens the number of interactions that users have with the mouse. The application includes a workspace that keeps the amount of items on the desktop to a minimum. Users are able to load multiple data files and process their data in a batch. If users need to copy existing plots, they can do so using the copy and paste feature to select multiple plots.
Users have several options for plots. They can chose a tree plot to categorize cells. If they want to see results in 3D, they can use the radar plot type. There is a secondary radar plot that includes gates. Overlay histograms are also a type of plot that users can use.
Kaluza is designed with several features that allow researchers to analyze large numbers of cell events. These include batch processing, numerous layouts for reports, and multi-file loading.
Kaluza allows researchers to interact with their data using overlay histograms, and three contour plots. The tree plot is for classifying cells. The software also includes two radar plots; one that offers a view in 2d and 3d, and one that includes gates. There is a New Features tab in the software that contains a list of the new features added to the software, as well as new plots added since the previous release of the software.
The Kaluza software application also includes flexibility. One of these is that users are able to see their data and statistics together since the application groups them together. The system automatically populates the plot sheets with plots. When viewing statistics, users don’t have to scroll the data. Users can also choose the statistics according to plot.

My other passions include grilling, wine tasting, and real food. To be honest, my biggest passion is flow cytometry, which is something that Carol and I share. My personal mission is to make flow cytometry education accessible, relevant, and fun. I’ve had a long history in the field starting all the way back in graduate school.
