Gating in CPA

I am wondering whether FACS-like gating strategies can be used in CPA. In other words, is it possible to gate events in a first scatterplot and to display only those events in a second scatterplot?

Hi Felix,

A way to do this is the following, using the fact that a defined gate funtions much like a filter in CPA:

  • Produce a scatter plot with the desired measurements and create a gate.
  • Create another scatter plot in a new window using the same measurements as for the 1st one, but this time, select the gate you created under the “Filter” box to the bottom left.

Clicking the “Update” button will then plot only the points within the 2-D confines of that gate.
