Forecyt® Software for Interactive Assay Development, Analysis, and Multiparameter Data Visualization from Sartorius

The heart of Sartorius, the Forecyt® Software platform, is an interactive assay development, implementation, and analysis environment.

Designed from a screening perspective, Forecyt® Software provides plate level annotation, analytics, and results visualization tools not found in traditional flow-based analysis software packages. From linking well data together to combining multiple assay outcomes together to identify “hits”, the time saving features help you get data insights that drive discovery.

Forecyt® Software’s Panorama Algorithm - The ONLY way to analyze multiple plates across your experiment at a glance.

  • Compare heat maps across multiple plates
  • Identify wells of interest using multiple criteria
  • Rank wells by any metric with line graphs

Forecyt® Standard Edition: “Instrument Control and Analysis”

Part of every instrument, Forecyt® software provides the flexibility to set up sample acquisition, probe rinsing, and sampler cleaning any way you want, plate after plate. Once your analysis is created and optimized, it can be turned into a template that can be applied to any number of plates, providing “on-the-fly” analysis and result generation as your plates are processed.

Forecyt® Offline Edition: “Analysis on the Run”

For when you need to analyze your data but are not connected to the instrument. Planes, trains, and automobiles are now just extensions of your office.

Forecyt® Enterprise Edition: “Multi-user Access and Data Sharing”

Designed to be secure and scalable, Forecyt® Enterprise software is a multi-user, multi-instrument data storage and management solution that gives distributed access to remote analysis capabilities using “clients” activated with floating licenses. Some of the advantages for your organization are:

  • Security and reliability via centralized data storage, encrypted network communication, and team / user level permissions
  • Collaboration via data sharing among multiple users
  • Throughput enhancements by running experiments on multiple instruments
  • Scalability through enterprise caliber software architecture
  • Ease of deployment via simple installers and flexible physical IT layout

Forecyt® Software Features

One Stop Workflow
ForeCyt_Clip 1

Intuitive, “six task” assay building environment. Annotate and analyze across an entire plate. Set up plate level analytics like IC/EC50 curves; standard curves are automatically generated.

Interactive gating with real time results
ForeCyt_Clip 2

Easy assay optimization by gating on entire plate of data at once. Moving gates changes resulting data in real time allowing you to see the effects immediately.

Generate the data you need and share it
ForeCyt_Clip 3

Create custom metrics derived from basic metric building blocks using a simple wizard. All metrics become available for additional analysis, visualization, and/or exporting. A report generation wizard makes it easy to document your work in electronic notebooks and share it across your organization.

Data Visualizations linked by well
ForeCyt_Clip 4

The unique "Well Scan" function links multiple visualizations so you can quickly see all graphics generated from each well.

Make decisions easier with profile mapping

Making sense of high content data and finding the sample with the right activity fingerprint can take a lot of time. We provide a way to combine assay outcomes (profiles) with Boolean logic to help locate the wells that meet your multiplexed criteria.

Create a plate level view of all well graphs
ForeCyt_Clip 6

With a single mouse click you can make any plot or histogram into a “Plate View” of well data thumbnails to visually compare them.

Analyze multiple plates across your experiment

Snapshot your entire experiment with Forecyt® Software’s Panorama. View all plate data together to compare heat maps, identify hits across profile maps, and rank wells by any metric with line graphs.
