BD now has a control/data acquisition/analysis program that  runs on a
Q650-level Mac (not native PPC at the present, I think). This setup
replaces the older HP-based control/analysis system for their analylyzers
and sorters.  There is a separate program (called "Attractors") that does
clustering.  Both are fairly pricey (likely over $4K/Mac).  You should
contact your local BD sales rep for details.  There are third party
software solutions for specific applications, like MacCycle from Phoenix
for cell cycle analysis.
