Cytometry & Cell Sorting Laboratory Software Licenses

Researchers at NYU Langone’s Cytometry and Cell Sorting Laboratory have access to FlowJo site licenses and FCS Express.

FlowJo Analysis Software Site License

Principal investigators at NYU Langone can obtain up to seven complimentary FlowJo site licenses. Our information technology team administers licensing of the analysis software. The license is not a hardware dongle but rather a license linked to your computer. We recommend these licenses be linked to shared laboratory computers. This site license allows access to all available versions of FlowJo.

To activate the FlowJo analysis software site license, take the following steps:

  • Designate the computer for installation. A 64-bit operating system is preferred.
  • Download FlowJo. After selecting your operating system, click “Continue” on the NYU Langone caution page.
  • Retrieve the hardware address using this guide.
  • Principal investigators, email our information technology research analysts at to request activation.
  • You then receive a confirmation email containing the serial number to be entered into FlowJo for activation.

Additional licenses are made available for a one-time fee at our current discounted rate. Investigator-owned hardware dongles are not affected by this program and continue to function.

The FlowJo website is a great resource, with training manuals, interactive tutorials, and videos. There are also regularly scheduled webinars touching on basic to advanced topics in cytometric analysis.

Additionally, our staff provides one-on-one FlowJo training for a fee. Email us to set up a training appointment at Although we have data available for your use in training, it is always more interesting to learn using your own data.

FCS Express Site Software License

FCS Express 7 can be installed on 32-bit or 64-bit Windows computers, and a Mac OS version is offered as well. In order to install FCS Express, you must register for a free De Novo Software account.

Once logged in, software downloads can be accessed by clicking on your initials at the top right of the page and selecting “downloads.” Please make sure to download the RUO (Research Use Only) version of FCS Express 7. When opening FCS Express 7 for the first time, you will be prompted for a configuration file. Select the option to use the configuration wizard to automatically configure the software for use.
