Reproducible and easy analysis and evaluation of LEGENDplex, CBA, and MACSPlex experiments.

The companies behind the above beadplex systems, provide their own software for the analysis of the generated data. However, the strong dependence on manual interaction make the respective solutions labor-intensive and above all not always reproducible.


From CRAN:


Or the development version from GitLab:

# install.packages("devtools")
# Or with vignettes built
# devtools::install_git("", build_vignettes = TRUE)

beadplexr depends on several packages with system requirements. On an Unix/Linux system the libraries can be installed with

sudo apt install \
    libnlopt-dev \
    libfontconfig1-dev \
    libharfbuzz-dev libfribidi-dev \
    libfreetype6-dev libpng-dev libtiff5-dev libjpeg-dev

For other systems, please see the documentation of the individual packages:

Getting started


The package comes with a comprehensive example in the vignette ‘Analysis of LEGENDplex data with beadplexr’:
