CellProfiler Analyst allows interactive exploration and analysis of data, particularly from high-throughput, image-based experiments. Included is a supervised machine learning system which can be trained to recognize complex and subtle phenotypes, for automatic scoring of millions of cells.


Download CellProfiler Analyst

CellProfiler Analyst requires JDK 1.8 to be installed (not just JRE). Check the Java path.

Please note that this is the development branch of CPA and it will be updated on regular basis.
