Prism is a powerful combination of biostatistics, curve fitting (nonlinear regression) and scientific graphing in one comprehensive program. Easily organize, analyze and graph repeated experiments; pick appropriate statistical tests and interpret the results.
What's New
Version 6.0b:

Note: Prism 6 is a paid upgrade from version 5, available for $199.

New Analyses -- ANOVA, multiple comparisons and more
  • Two-way ANOVA with repeated measures in both factors.
  • Multiplicity adjusted ("exact") P values for multiple comparison tests. Read more about this #1 request in our blog.
  • New post tests - Fisher's unprotected Least Significant Difference (LSD) and Holm-Sidak.
  • Run a set of t tests (one per row) at once, correcting for multiple comparisons with Bonferroni or by contolling the False Discovery Rate (FDR).
  • Follow two-way ANOVA with tests for simple or main effects. Don't worry if you don't know what that means - Prism 6 presents those choices graphically so the meaning is obvious.
  • Greenhouse-Geisser correction in repeated measures one-way ANOVA to avoid the need to assume sphericity.
  • Grubbs' outlier detection. Our most popular QuickCalc web calculator is now part of Prism.
  • Kolmogorov-Smirnov test to compare two groups (an alternative to the Mann-Whitney test).
  • Ratio t test
Improved curve fitting
  • Fit to implicit and differential models.
  • Write more complex models.
  • Quicker interpolations. Prism 6 adds a new analysis that streamlines the process of interpolating values from standard curves.
  • Weight your fit by 1/Y^k
  • Monte-Carlo simulations without writing scripts.
Pie charts and more
  • Prism 6 adds a new kind of data table for parts of whole data. Plot pie charts, donut plots and more.
  • Compare the observed distribution of values with theoretically expected values with the chi-squared or binomial test.
  • Compute each value as a fraction or percentage of the column total.
Work with larger data sets
  • Enter data in up to 256 data set columns.
  • Enter up to 256 subcolumns per data set (up from 52 in Prism 5). This lets you compute repeated measures two-way ANOVA with more subjects.
Work more efficiently
  • Faster. Faster saving, faster closing, faster nonparametric calculations, faster graphing, faster, crisper screen redraws.
  • Format several data sets at once. Want to plot alternating columns as dotted lines? Now you can do it in one step.
  • View and edit all of your column titles at once. Great for large files!
  • Choose the size, shape and color of your data points right from the data table. You can even select any contiguous block of data and make choices for that specific subset of your data table.
  • WAND. If you love MAGIC, you will love the new WAND. While MAGIC reformats graphs, the WAND analyzes and graphs a new data table to match what you have done to another.
  • Paste link values from results tables into a data table so everything updates automatically. This also works if you want to link data from one data table to another.
  • More ways to customize your graphs and layouts
Plays well with others
  • Export graphs in more formats.
  • Better TIFF compression means smaller files and faster exporting.
  • Import more types of graphic files into your Prism layouts.
  • Control whether to use periods or commas as a decimal separator from within Prism.
  • Choose how to handle excluded values when you export/paste from Prism data tables.
  • If you use LabArchives, you can now open your Prism files right from LabArchives without first downloading the files to your computer. Prism 6 files are fully searchable within LabArchives. Remember that Prism users can get a free LabArchives account.

Just the best graphic application for the Mac.
Fitting equations its just easy and simple to use.
Prism is a pleasure to use.

Besides the graphic features you can also use it to do some ANOVAS, etc.

Costumer support is also excellent.

Actually, the application is poorly characterized here. It is a statistical package. It does a lot more than just regressions.

I couldn't find how to submit an updated description or report the issue :-

By far the best and easiest to use statistical package I've found. A must have for biological research!

The Macupdate Desktop app tries to update the Mozilla app http://prism.mozilla.com/ (which makes standalone apps from web sites) with the one shown here on this page. They have the same name but they are not the same. Perhaps there's another way to differentiate?

We are working on an update that will address mis/matching applications that share the same name.
There are currently no troubleshooting comments. If you are experiencing a problem with this app, please post a comment.
