A python package for reading raw fcs files
fcsparser is a python package for reading fcs files.
$ pip install fcsparser
>>> import fcsparser >>> path = fcsparser.test_sample_path >>> meta, data = fcsparser.parse(path, reformat_meta=True)
A more detailed example can be found here: http://nbviewer.ipython.org/github/eyurtsev/fcsparser/blob/master/doc/fcsparser_example.ipynb
- python: 2.7, 3.4
- FCS Formats: Supports FCS 2.0, 3.0, and 3.1
- FCS Machines: BD FACSCalibur, BD LSRFortessa, BD LSR-II, MiltenyiBiotec MACSQuant VYB
Pull requests are greatly appreciated. Missing features include:
- the ability to apply compensation.
- a set of transformations (hlog, logicle, etc.) that can be applied.
Also fcs files from more devices and more formats are greatly appreciated, especially if the parser fails for them!
