Flow Cytometry Laboratory Management System (flowLIMS)


The Flow Cytometry Laboratory Information Management System (flowLIMS) is a web-accessed software system that gives users the ability to do the following:

  • Login securely.
  • Create and manage experiment protocols for the DiVa and FACScan flow cytometers.
  • Automatically convey protocol descriptions to the DiVa.
  • Retrieve and manage experiment results.
  • Generate FlowJo summary files so that experimental results may be visualized.
  • Store protocols, experiment results, and associated files such as figures and analysis results in a regularly backed-up archive space.
  • Organize protocols, experiment results, and associated files into projects and give the project creator the ability to add project collaborators from the set of LIMS users.
  • Search the archive for protocols and experiments.


The FlowLIMS software and documentation is available for download from The SourceForge web site: http://sourceforge.net/projects/flowlims
