We have now released CellProfiler version 4.0! Download it here.

The primary goal of this release has been to migrate CellProfiler from Python 2 to Python 3. This has involved extensive restructuring of the code base, leading to a lot of “under-the-hood” improvements.

Important Compatibility Notes

As a major release, this version contains changes to CellProfiler that will...

Announcing CellProfiler 3.1.9

Beth Cimini

Hello all! It’s been a crazy last few months for the CellProfiler team, as we’ve been hiring some new members to the team and working hard on the transition to Python 3, which will bump us into CellProfiler version 4. Keep your eyes peeled for exciting content in the future!

We did want to bring you one last release in the 3.X series, though, especially for OSX 10.14 users who have been left without a useable build. This release also has some minor bugfixes in RelateObjects and IdentifySecondaryObjects.

Happy holidays to everyone- we here at the CellProfiler team got you a little end-of-year treat in the form of CellProfiler 3.1.8.  This is primarily a bugfix release, getting rid of some bugs in MeasureObjectIntensity, MeasureColocalization, ExportToSpreadsheet, CorrectIlluminationCalculate, and Smooth.  We’ve also updated how we package for Windows, so those of you who had JAVA_HOME issues with 3.1.5 (feel free to now unset that in your environment variables if it’s set to your 3.1.5 install!) should now experience...

There’re a few noteworthy changes that some users might enjoy like UTF-8 pipeline encoding, a simpler application bundle (that won’t require installing...

If you’ve not yet seen it, the Allen Cell Explorer is a real visual and biological...

Making it easier to run image analysis in the cloud: announcing Distributed-CellProfiler

Beth Cimini

There’s nothing more exciting than getting back a big batch of data from your automated microscope – finally, you have the results of your screen, your timelapse, or whatever you’ve spent the last weeks or months preparing.  That excitement can turn to sadness quickly though when you realize that neither your laptop nor the old general-use computer in the lab are up to analyzing thousands (or tens of thousands, or hundreds of thousands!) of images.  But, congratulations! You’ve reached an elite level of CellProfiler...
