1 BD CellQuest Pro Analysis Tutorial This tutorial guides you through an analysis example using BD CellQuest Pro software. If you are already familiar with BD CellQuest Pro software on Mac OS 9, refer to the BD CellQuest Pro software (version 5.1 or later) ReadMe file for a description of new features. ReadMe files are located in the Documentation folder/read Me Files folder on your hard drive. Read Me Files folder This tutorial covers: Displaying data Analyzing data Additional features (enhanced Snap-To gating features, expression editor, load sample, and so on) To perform the steps in this tutorial, you will need BD CellQuest Pro software, version 5.1 or higher. BD CellQuest Pro software allows you to acquire and analyze data from your flow cytometer on a Macintosh computer. In BD CellQuest Pro software, an Experiment document contains elements such as plots, regions, gates, statistics, markers, and annotated text. Data files are not saved in the Experiment document. The software saves a reference to the data files that contain the information needed to recreate the plots and stats on the Experiment document. Acquisition and analysis of flow cytometry data is a multistep process, as shown in Figure 1-1 on page 2. This tutorial focuses on analysis. BD CellQuest Pro Software Analysis Tutorial Rev. A 1
2 Start Up System Perform QC Optimize Settings Acquire Data Analyze Data Shut Down System Display data. Analyze data. Create regions, gates, statistics views, user-defined expressions, and so on. Set up a batch analysis, if needed. Perform QC of analysis (for example, verify gates are set appropriately). Print or export results, as needed. Save the analysis, if needed. Figure 1-1 Analysis overview Displaying Data 1 Launch BD CellQuest Pro software by clicking the application icon in the Dock.

The plot and the Dot Plot Inspector appear. BD CellQuest Pro Software Analysis Tutorial Rev. A 3
4 The Inspector window displays the attributes of a selected object or group of objects (selected objects have square handles at the corners). Only one Inspector can be displayed at a time. Items appearing in the Inspector window can change depending on the object or group of objects selected. When an object is active (the frame is colored blue) or deselected (the frame is colored white), the Inspector is empty. NOTICE There are three states for objects in the Experiment document: selected, active, or deselected. Selected objects have square handles at the corners. Click anywhere in the frame of the object to select it. Active objects have colored frames (default color is blue). To activate an object, click anywhere in the object except on the frame. A deselected object has a white frame. Click anywhere outside the object to deselect it. 5 Choose Select File from the File pop-up menu in the Inspector. 6 Select the isotype control data file, Norm.001, in the Samples Files folder; click Open. See Figure 1-3. If needed, navigate to the Sample Files folder using the scroll bar in the dialog. The Sample Files folder is in OS X/BD Applications/CellQuest Pro Folder. scroll bar Figure 1-3 Open file dialog 4 BD CellQuest Pro Software Analysis Tutorial Rev. A.
5 7 Click the Multicolor Gating checkbox in the Inspector to select it. When MultiColor Gating is selected, populations are colored as you draw regions. 8 Click and drag the frame of the plot and move it away from the tool palette. You have just selected the plot and moved it. When a plot or any view is selected, black handles appear on each corner. Selected objects are affected by any command. Only selected views can be resized, deleted, and moved. Analyzing Data Creating Regions Analyze a subpopulations by drawing regions around the cells of interest. In this case, we will analyze the lymphocytes. The FSC vs SSC isotype control dot plot contains lymphocytes, monocytes, and granulocytes. To analyze the lymphocytes, you must first draw a region around them. 1 Click the Snap-To Region tool ( ) in the tool palette to select it. 2 Click on the lymphocyte population in the FSC vs SSC plot. See Figure 1-4. lymphocytes Figure 1-4 FSC vs SSC plot A region is automatically drawn around the lymphocytes. Once drawn, the region created with the Snap-To tool behaves like any polygon region, except it has the ability to redraw itself when a new data file is read into the plot in which it was created. For more information, refer to the BD CellQuest Pro Software User s Guide. BD CellQuest Pro Software Analysis Tutorial Rev. A 5
6 To resize the region, click once anywhere on the region outline to select it. Click on one of the square handles and drag to reposition the vertex. Do not click inside the region, as this deselects it. To adjust the individual vertices, double-click anywhere on the region outline. Individual vertices appear. Click on one of the square handles and drag to reposition the vertex. To delete the region, make sure the region is selected (the square handles are visible) and press Delete or choose Edit > Cut. 3 Move the region label so it is not obscured. Make sure the region is not selected (no square handles visible). Click on the R1 region label and move it to an area not obscured by the population. OPTIONAL Practice creating another region type by doing the following. 1 Click the Polygon-Region tool ( ) in the tool palette to select it. 2 Click on the FSC vs SSC plot to set the first vertex of the polygon region around the monocytes. 3 Move the cursor to the next location and click again to draw the next vertex. Continue the process until the monocyte region is surrounded and the first vertex has been reached. Alternatively, double-click to complete the region. Once the first and the last vertex meet, the region is complete. R2 appears since this is the second region drawn. Notice that the thickness of the polygon region is different from the Snap-To region. Snap-To regions have a thicker border than other region types. 4 Practice adjusting the region. 6 BD CellQuest Pro Software Analysis Tutorial Rev. A.
7 5 Practice using the Highlight features. The highlight feature increases the size of events displayed in the plots, making them more prominent and easier to view. Highlighting does not add events or affect statistics. To highlight a population, choose Gates > Gate List. Click the G1 or G2 Hilite checkbox in the Gate List. View the dot plot to see the change. You can highlight up to sixteen populations. Use this feature to emphasize populations of interest for analysis and publication purposes. 6 Press the Option key and click in the plot. The region Show/Hide pop-up menu appears. 7 Select Hide All Regions. The region outline disappears from the plot. The region still exists, the outline is hidden. 8 Select Show All Regions from the Show/Hide pop-up menu. The region outline reappears on the plot. 9 Without the Option key pressed, click on the R2 region outline to select the region. 10 Press Delete. The region disappears from the Region List and from the dot plot. The region is now deleted from the document. BD CellQuest Pro Software Analysis Tutorial Rev. A 7
8 Creating Additional Plots Now you will view the gated subclass control data in a dot plot and a histogram plot. Contour Plot 1 Choose Plots > Contour Plot. A contour plot appears, along with the Inspector. 2 Choose Norm.001 from the File pop-up menu in the Inspector. 3 Choose FL1-H from the X parameter pop-up menu and FL2-H from the Y parameter pop-up menu in the Inspector. 4 Choose G1=R1 from the Gate pop-up menu. 5 Verify Log Density is chosen from the Scale pop-up menu. 6 Change the contour color.

OPTIONAL If you want to make all the plots the same size, follow these steps. 1 Select all the plots. Press the Shift key and click on the border of each plot. Square handles appear at the corners of all plots. 2 Enter 3.0 in the Width box; then enter 3.0 in the Height box under Geometry in the Inspector. 3 After entering 3.0 in the Height box, press Return to accept the entry. All plots are now the same size. 4 Readjust the position of the plots so they are not overlapping, if necessary. Defining Markers and Displaying Statistics The subclass control acts as a negative control in immunophenotyping. You will set quadrant markers around the gated data in the FL1 vs FL2 contour plot to designate areas of negativity and positivity and display statistics for each quadrant. You need to create histogram markers to generate statistics for events in a designated section of a histogram. A marker consists of an upper and lower boundary connected by a horizontal line. BD CellQuest Pro software can calculate statistics for the entire histogram or for sections of the histogram. BD CellQuest Pro Software Analysis Tutorial Rev. A 9
10 1 Select the Quadrant Marker tool ( ) in the tool palette. 2 Click and drag the cursor in the FL1 vs FL2 plot until the quadrant markers appear. Drag the intersection of the markers so that the isotype control is in the lower-left quadrant. Release the mouse to set the quadrants. To change the position of the markers, click the handle at their intersection point and drag the markers to a new location. You can also delete the marker when it is selected. Click the plot outside the markers to deselect them and the handle disappears. 3 Choose Stats > Quadrant Stats. The quadrant statistics view appears with descriptive and statistical information. 4 Click the Quadrant statistics view and choose Stats > Edit Quadrant Stats. 5 Make the following selections. 6 Click OK in the Edit Quadrant Statistics dialog. The information in the statistics view updates to reflect the changes. 7 Reduce the size of the statistics view. Select the statistic view, if it is not already selected. 10 BD CellQuest Pro Software Analysis Tutorial Rev. A.
11 Click on one of the square handles, and then drag the handle to decrease the size of the view. 8 Move the statistics view underneath or next to the FL1 vs FL2 plot. Editing the statistics view and decreasing its size allow for more room on the Experiment document. 9 Select the Histogram-Marker tool ( ) from the tool palette. 10 Set the marker around the negative control population (Figure 1-5). Click the center bar to move the M1 marker until the left edge of the marker is against the Counts axis. Click and drag the right edge of the marker to encompass the negative population. Release the mouse button to complete the marker. As the cursor passes over the plot, its shape changes to a crosshair to indicate that you can define histogram markers. The ribbon under the title bar displays the channel number or linear value (x-axis) and the count (y-axis). The marker appears with a handle at each endpoint. 11 Draw another marker from the right edge of M1 to the end of the histogram plot. Any population inside marker M2 is positive for FL1 (Gamma-1). Figure 1-5 Setting M1 and M2 markers 12 Select the histogram plot, if it s not already selected. 13 Choose Stats > Histogram Stats. 14 Click the border of the Histogram statistics view and position the view underneath the histogram plot. 15 Look at the Analysis view of the browser. See Figure 1-6 on page 12. If the view is hidden behind the experiment window, choose Windows > Browser:untitled. Click the disclosure triangle next to the folder icon and the tube icon to view all the items in the Analysis browser. BD CellQuest Pro Software Analysis Tutorial Rev. A 11

14 When the for [n] seconds radio button is selected under Pause after each file increment field, the batch will pause for n seconds after each data file is processed. When the Print after each file increment checkbox is checked, the Print One command is executed after each data file is processed. When the Export statistics checkbox is checked, all statistics (eg, quadrant and histogram statistics) from the document are exported to a file that you can open in a third-party application such as Microsoft Excel. The number in the File Increment field instructs the software to increment that number of data files when batching. For example, if 2 is entered in the field and the first data file is.001, the next data file analyzed would be Click OK. 4 Choose Batch > Run. Batch processing automatically starts and the Batch control floater appears. The floater has buttons in it that allow you to manually control batch analysis. Refer to the BD CellQuest Pro Software User s Guide for more information about the Batch control floater. Batch analysis of files in the Sample Files Folder occurs. The batch finishes when the last data file has been analyzed. The batch floater closes automatically when the batch finishes and a message dialog appears stating The batch has completed. All the plots are at the end of their folders. 5 Click OK to dismiss the end of batch message. 6 Inspect the printouts for each data file. If needed, reanalyze data files where regions or markers need to be adjusted. To reanalyze a data file, do the following. Choose Edit > Select All. Choose Plots > Change Data File. Navigate to the folder containing the data you want to reanalyze. Open the file. Make adjustments to regions and markers, as needed.

18 Using Enhanced Snap-To Gating Features The Snap-To gating feature has two additional enhancements, Auto Movement and Auto Size when the checkbox is selected. You can access these features by selecting a Snap-To region in a plot, and then viewing the Inspector. You can change how far the region moves to find a new cluster by adjusting the Auto Movement value. A higher Auto Movement value allows the Snap-To region to travel greater distances to locate a cluster. The Snap-To region retains this setting if another data file is read into the plot. Use the Auto Size feature to adjust automatic sizing of the Snap-To region. When the checkbox is selected, the software automatically determines cluster size. A higher Auto Size value allows the Snap-To region to encompass a greater number of outlying events; a lower value restricts the region to fewer outlying events. The Snap-To region retains this setting if another data file is read into the plot. To practice using these enhanced features, do the following. 1 Launch BD CellQuest Pro software, if needed. 2 Choose Help > CellQuest Pro Help. 3 Enter Snap-To Region in the search field and press Enter. Ask a Question field 18 BD CellQuest Pro Software Analysis Tutorial Rev. A.
