What is Prometheus?

Prometheus is new scientific image analysis software for Mac and PC. It processes digital image files, detects and graphically displays objects and features, and records measurements. And it does it all in an automated and flexible standards-based environment that adapts to your research and will quickly become your favorite computing tool. We specialize in biological microscopy and High Content Screening, but fundamentally Prometheus is a general-purpose image analysis toolbox that can adapt to many imaging applications.

Here's a typical example of a Prometheus workflow:

(1) Open and display multiple 16-bit tiff-format image files of fluorescently labeled cells from a microscope.

(2) Automatically identify, count, and measure cells and subcellular features.

(3) Record detailed object measurements and graphics in standard formats such as csv spreadsheets and tiff images.

Then automate the whole process so that it does the same analysis for thousands of images and compiles the results.

The beauty of Prometheus is its combination of built-in features making advanced image analysis accessible on day one and its open-ended standards-based interface enabling customization and automation to take your work further than you thought possible.
