Fast, accurate, analysis
With WinList's flexible design, open any number of data files at the same time for viewing relevant parameter relationships across
files. Creating regions and applying gates using point-and-click simplifies building an analysis template. Use the new alert system to
flag out of range results, and create reports that work in concert with the powerful batch analysis system. Multi-threading support
leverages the multi-core processors on your computer to get your work done more quickly.
No other FACS analysis software compares with WinList's full feature
WinList has everything you need to create your own reusable report templates. Save your custom reports with formatted text and analysis
information, including histogram graphics, results, and alerts. And of course, reports can be exported as PDFs with a click of a button.
Database and graphic output
Store analysis results in delimited-text database files or export directly to other programs like MS Excel, a feature designed to utilize
automated batch analysis. Individual histogram graphics, the entire workspace, or even a copy of the report can be exported at publication
quality as common graphic file formats (PDF, WMF, BMP).
By opening multiple data files, you can move through your WinList analysis with ease. VCR controls allow you to select specific files with a
simple mouse click. Or, click the Auto-Advance button and the system will process all the files you selected for analysis. Use the elegant
Batch Control dialog to select program operations using simple check boxes. Printing, data export, graphic export, databasing, and report
export are just some of the powerful options available in the enhanced batch processor.
Creating an analysis workspace has never been easier. The enhanced multiple histogram select dialog lists the parameter names in the listmode
file. Select groups of 2-parameter histograms with a single click. Change histogram parameters directly using the parameter label drop-down
list on the histogram. Region selection tools and gating options are right on the new histogram toolbar. Multiple analysis pages on each data
source and multiple report pages give you virtually unlimited analysis display and reporting flexibility.
WinList includes OpenGL 3D to provide enhanced graphics options for 2P and
Single-tube compensation - allows you to create a compensation database to handle any combination of flours in a panel.

"My laboratory recently switched to a new eight color flow cytometer.
With the switch, we decided to adopt WinList as our new analysis software.
I have found the software easy to use and comprehensive. We have easily set up
protocols for all major work-ups, including panels for acute and chronic leukemias,
lymphomas, FNA specimens and others. Patient data can be loaded into the protocols in batch,
considerably reducing analysis time. Technical support has been first rate, with very quick
response times and easily understood answers to all of our questions. All and all, I have
been very satisfied with the product in all respects and highly recommend it."

"Starting as a student in the lab of Dr. Cees Cornelisse in Leiden,
The Netherlands, I worked with an ICP22 and had to calculate the DNA
index and S-phase manually from histograms plotted on calibrated paper.
The introduction of the FACScan allowed us to experiment with
multiparameter DNA analysis. The combined use of WinList and ModFit was
a blessing from the sky. Currently, we perform multiparameter DNA flow
cytometry on a daily base using ModFit and WinList for analysis.
Especially the collaboration with "The Guys from Verity" is inspiring
and results in a continuum of sophisticated improvements of WinList and

"There are several software programs available that can be used to
analyze flow cytometry data. I have used WinList since the very first
version and found no other software as comprehensive and easy to use.
For the analysis of multicolor data of any number of parameters, WinList
version has it all."
Carleton C. Stewart,
Emeritus Director of
Roswell Park Cancer Institute
"We are a high volume, clinical flow lab with many WinList users, and
we have tested all of the commercially available list mode analysis
programs. Only WinList with its unstructured yet intuitive approach
provides the robust flexibility, utility and reliability that allow us
to get through our work efficiently."
David Miller, MD,
"I've been using WinList since version 2.0 (1992); I still have the
original 5.25 inch floppy disks. I've never tried any other off-line
analysis software because I've never had to. The technical support from
VSH is unparalleled. The application does what I need, and in cases
where it hasn't, Verity Software House has always addressed my concerns.
Using this application is why I do flow cytometry; if I didn't have it
to use, I'd be doing something else."

"Software should never enter the equation when a researcher begins
experimental design. With WinList the only limit is the researcher's

Paul K. Wallace, PhD,
Director of Flow Cytometry
of Roswell Park Cancer Institute
"I have been using WinList to perform listmode analysis of clinical
flow cytometry cases for almost 20 years. To put it mildly, I can't
imagine having to use another brand of software to take care of this
very important procedure. I have tried other vendors analytical
software and in my opinion WinList surpasses the rest in a number of
different ways. For example, the Windows-based version has complete
functionality that we are all used to, i.e. pull-down menus,
right-left-click features, ease of use with other Windows-based software
such as EXCEL and Word. Three words best describe how strong this
1. Easy to use. Protocols that are simple to setup can be saved and
for every panel you use whether it's 1, 3, or 20 files or more WinList
analyzes, compiles the histograms and statistics, creates a beautiful
multicolor report, and then you can print it, save it for retrieval
later, or electronically export it into your labs LIS or other software
2. Flexible: whether you run a two-color instrument or a 13-color
instrument it doesn't matter because WinList will handle an unlimited
number of detected signals and allow infinite 1, 2, or 3-parameter
3. Fast: WinList analysis shortens our analysis time to mere minutes
with the many functions and gating tools that can give you unlimited
color printouts or electronic reports no matter how extensive or
complicated the caseload is.
Probably the thing I like best about using WinList is the customer
service and personal attention the folks at Verity provide. Whenever I
have a question or need instruction on a new feature they are more than
happen to assist me. You don't talk to an answering machine; instead,
you get a live and friendly technical specialist that will be more than
happy to assist you.
All you have to do is try it out. The answer to listmode analysis
will be loud and clear. WinList is the best, hands-down."

"WinList software has become a vital tool in all of our
Poly-Chromatic Flow Cytometry applications. With advanced functions such
as FCOM, for rapid transformation into Cluster analysis platforms, our
lab can process and compare complex data in hours not months! Verity
Software House has provided amazing customer and technical assistance
that helped us get moving. Many thanks, VSH"

"Using WinList is like opening a treasure trove it is chockfull of
special features that complement the basic operations. The program is
fun to learn and easy to use. Most of all, the Verity Software House
team is keenly responsive to users input."

"WinList, wow! What an incredibly versatile and powerful tool! I came
to my present position in 1994 as the director of the Nashville VA
Clinical Flow Cytometry Lab and VA / Vanderbilt Flow Cytometry Research
Core. My predecessor, Wayne Greene, introduced me to WinList at that
time and I have used it almost exclusively since that time. I've given
brief trials to several alternative FC softwares, but always find that
WinList can perform all of the essentials as well if not better than the
Part of my job has been to instruct hemepath clinical residents in
clinical flow cytometric analysis and interpretation of Leukemia and
Lymphoma. WinList has been an incredible teaching tool for this purpose.
I've saved literally hundreds of WinList MultiGraphs showing analytic
examples of various Leukemia / Lymphoma disease processes. The
MultiGraphs are color coded to show gating selections and provide a
ready library of examples instantly ready to be shared with residents.
WinList histograms, dot plots, and/or results can easily be dropped into
PowerPoint for that last minute presentation, or saved in MultiGraphs
until you're ready to compile graphics for your clinical or research
paper a great time saver.
WinList has also been an excellent solution for analysis of research
data for the hundreds of investigators that have used our core over the
past 15 years. WinList is so intuitive. Compared with some of the other
softwares I've tried, WinList takes very little time to become
productively proficient. So, as I've gotten busier over the years, I've
encouraged any researcher I can to do their own analysis. Within an hour
or two of training, they are off on their own: constructing and saving
protocols, batching data, constructing Boolean gates, back gating, color
coding, selecting histogram style (dots, 3D rotation, isopleths, density
gradients, etc), selecting statistics, saving MultiGraphs, producing
overlays, and saving data for presentations / publications. Another
powerful tool is the unique interface of WinList with ModFit. Many
researchers have combined these two programs to simultaneously evaluate
Tunnel assays, or cyclins or oncogenes, or other protein expressions
together with DNA Cell Cycle. I generally find that the only limiting
factor is my imagination. I give WinList my highest recommendation
