Comprehensive Analysis and Powerful Statistics, Simplified
Organize Your Data Effectively
Unlike spreadsheets or other scientific graphing programs, Prism
has eight different types of data tables specifically formatted for the
analyses you want to run. This
makes it easier to enter data correctly, choose suitable
analyses, and create stunning graphs.
Perform The Right Analysis
Avoid statistical jargon. In clear language, Prism presents an
extensive library of analyses from common to highly specific—nonlinear
regression, t tests, nonparametric
comparisons, one-, two- and three-way ANOVA, analysis of
contingency tables, survival analysis, and much more. Each analysis has a
checklist to help you understand the
required statistical assumptions and confirm you have selected
an appropriate test.
Get Actionable Help As You Go
Reduce the complexity of statistics. Prism’s online help goes
beyond your expectations. At almost every step, access thousands of
pages from the online Prism Guides.
Browse the Graph Portfolio and learn how to make a wide range of
graph types. Tutorial data sets also help you understand why you should
perform certain analyses and
how to interpret your results.
Work Smarter, Not Harder
One-Click Regression Analysis
No other program simplifies curve fitting like Prism. Select an
equation and Prism does the rest—fits the curve, displays a table of
results and function parameters,
draws the curve on the graph, and interpolates unknown values.
Focus on Your Research, Not Your Software
No coding required. Graphs and results are automatically updated
in real time. Any changes to the data and analyses—adding missed data,
omitting erroneous data,
correcting typos, or changing analysis choices—are reflected in
results, graphs, and layouts instantaneously.
Automate Your Work Without Programming
Reduce tedious steps to analyze and graph a set of experiments.
It is easy to replicate your work by creating a template, duplicating a
family, or cloning a
graph—saving you hours of set up time. Apply a consistent look
to a set of graphs with one click using Prism Magic.
The Fastest Way to Elegantly Graph and Share Your Work
Countless Ways to Customize Your Graphs
Focus on the story in your data, not manipulating your software.
Prism makes it easy to create the graphs you want. Choose the type of
graph, and customize any part-how
the data is arranged, the style of your data points, labels,
fonts, colors, and much more. The customization options are endless.
Export Publication-Quality Graphs With One Click
Reduce time to publish. Prism allows you to customize your
exports (file type, resolution, transparency, dimensions, color space
RGB/CMYK) to meet the requirements of
journals. Set your defaults to save time.
Share more than your graphs. Prism’s comprehensive record of
your data enables effective collaboration with other scientists. All
parts of your Prism project (raw data,
analyses, results, graphs, and layouts) are contained in a
single file that you can share with one click. Now others can easily
follow your work at every step,
enhancing the clarity of your findings and streamlining your
Prism 8.3.0 Release Notes
Introducing Logistic Regression
You've been asking for it, and we've delivered: Simple Logistic
Regression and Multiple Logistic Regression are now available in Prism
A quick overview
One of the most top-requested features has continuously been the
ability to perform logistic regression with Prism. In many experiments,
your measurement of interest can only take on one of two possible
outcomes: yes or no, 1 or 0, "event occurred" or "event didn't occur".
In these situations, the right analysis for the job is often logistic
regression, and with the release of Prism 8.3.0, we're very excited
to announce that this analysis is now available to you. In fact, Prism
8.3.0 actually introduces two separate - but very similar - analyses:
Simple Logistic Regression
Multiple Logistic Regression
Your feedback and suggestions made logistic regression in Prism a
reality. Do you have other ideas for new features? Suggestions for
improvements to existing features? Email us at email@example.com to let us know!

Prism 8 for Windows
- Runs under either the 32- or 64-bit versions of Windows Vista, 7, 8 or 10. The installer will detect your version of Windows and install the 32- or 64-bit version of Prism accordingly.
- Requires a display resolution of at least 800 x 540 pixels. So the lowest standard display resolution for Prism is 800 x 600.
- Requires about 100 MB (megabytes) of space on the hard drive.
- Must connect to the internet to verify the license when it is first activated and also at at least once every 30 days (or every 20 launches, whichever comes sooner).
Prism 8 for Mac
- Runs under macOS X 10.9 (Mavericks) or later. If you use macOS 10.8, Prism will launch and seems to run OK, but we haven’t tested Prism thoroughly under this version of macOS and can’t provide much support. If you use 10.8, we urge you to update MacOS.
- Note: Prism on Mac OS Catalina (10.15): https://www.graphpad.com/support/faqid/2161/
- Requires a display with a resolution of at least 1024 x 768 pixels.
- Requires about 130 MB (megabytes) of space on the hard drive.
- Must connect to the internet to verify the license when it is first activated and also at at least once every 30 days (or every 20 launches, whichever comes sooner).
