Handle Leica Matrix Screener experiment images

Project description



Handle Leica Matrix Screener experiment images

The leicaimage library is a modified version of the leicaexperiment library, and was built as a drop in replacement for that library but without any xml or image processing. This also makes leicaimage work without heavy dependencies.


This is a python module for interfacing with Leica LAS AF/X Matrix Screener experiments.

The module can be used to:

  • Programmatically select slides/wells/fields/images given by attributes like:
    • slide (S)
    • well position (U, V)
    • field position (X, Y)
    • z-stack position (Z)
    • channel (C)


  • Access experiment as a python object


Python 3.6+ is required. Install using pip:

pip install leicaimage


Access all images

from leicaimage import Experiment

experiment = Experiment('path/to/experiment--')

for image in experiment.images:

Access specific wells/fields

from leicaimage import Experiment

experiment = Experiment('path/to/experiment--')

# on images in well --U00--V00
for well in experiment.well_images(0, 0):

Extract attributes from file names

from leicaimage import attribute

# get all channels
channels = [attribute(image, 'C') for image in experiment.images]
min_ch, max_ch = min(channels), max(channels)


Install dependencies and link development version of leicaimage to pip:

git clone
cd leicaimage
pip install -r requirements_dev.txt

Run tests
