Stage of development


we are using CellProfiler on MacOS for several years and really like it for its flexibility of the image analysis. However, for the amount of images and the detail we are analysing, it is currently fairly slow. Therefore, we would like to use the python version on Linux. Could you estimate when the python version of CellProfiler will be fully functional?



Hi David,

Our alpha release of the python based CellProfiler 2.0 is already available; further details are here. For Linux, I would suggest obtaining it from our svn repository at … llProfiler, and then obtain the packages listed from our wiki. The instructions on the wiki are still a work in progress, but the basics are there.

The full release is not due for another few weeks or so, but this revision is fairly close to what the final release will look like, so let us know if you encounter any problems.
