From Endrov

Endrov is a multi-purpose image analysis program. It is written indepedently and designed to address many of the shortcomings of other free software and many commercial packages.

Endrov has been published in Nature Methods:

Johan Henriksson, Jürgen Hench, Yong Guang Tong, Arvid Johansson, David Johansson, Thomas R Bürglin (2013) Endrov: an integrated platform for image analysis. Nature Methods 10: 6 (June). 454-456


Fix of broken release

A new file has been uploaded, and while at it, we made it a release of 2.23.3

Version 2.23.2 has been released

This is another maturity release. In particular, there have been some improvements of memory usage, bug-fixes for the high-troughput analyzer, and SIMI BioCell lineages can be imported.

Version 2.23.0 has been released

This version focuses on maturity, and fixes many bugs in the last version. In particular, a last minute bug sneaked in on the Mac platform (thanks Umesh!).

The most major new feature is the extension of ParticleMeasure to include global properties per well and per well and time point. Besides integrating new data into the analysis, you can use it to load your plate design matrix and sort your wells by one or more treatments (documentation to be updated). There are also more GUI features e.g. multiple plates can be batched in one go, and the graphs have been improved. Happy analysis!

Version 2.22.0 is now out

This update is the largest in a year. Thus take care to save an old version of Endrov in case incompatibilities have been introduced. The following are some of the highlights:

All the tutorial videos have been moved to YouTube. So if you were not able to view them before, now you should be able to.

A new logo contributed by Mikael Öhman! Finally one that doesn't hurt the eye. The user interface has also been reworked and many windows have been renamed.


Much improved documentation: Most wiki articles have been rewritten. Of particular interest is the closer Wiki-software intergration, for example a menu item brings you to the right article right away (left).

High-throughput screenings have been made simpler and more interactive. While you still have to make a flow to analyze a single image, doing it for multiple images, viewing the statistics and joining the data together can now all be done in the new Plate analysis window.


Initial work has been done to integrate Endrov and ImgLib with Endrov. This increases the generality of image processing plugins and is a first step towards being able to run ImageJ plugins inside. ImgLib is already now used in some plugins. However, the API is experimental and should probably be made more convenient for programmers, and there are concerns about the laziness.

Finally a major refactoring of the source code has been done to improve the structure. Essentially every class has been renamed, and common functionality has been broken out into new classes. This will speed up later development, and it reduced internal inconsistency even further. Many bugs have been fixed, some of which were as old as Endrov itself. However, the large reorganisation may also have introduced new bugs. So please play with the system, and let us know if you find any problems!
