Features[edit]

  • Provides statistical guidance for novices.
  • Analysis checklists review if an appropriate analysis was performed.
  • Nonlinear regression with many options (remove outliers, compare models, compare curves, interpolate standard curves, etc.).
  • Live links. When data are edited or replaced, Prism automatically updates the results and graphs.
  • Analysis choices can be reviewed, and changed, at any time.
