Dotmatics Launches GraphPad Prism 10 with a More Open File Format, Plus New Collaboration and Integration Capabilities
Helps break down data silos by enabling Prism data to be reused in workflows at any point along the research cycle to enhance scientific progress
BOSTON, Nov. 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Dotmatics, a leader in R&D scientific software connecting science, data, and decision-making, today announced a major new release of its popular GraphPad Prism application, the world's leading analysis and graphing solution for scientific research. Prism 10 introduces a number of features including a new, more open file format (.prism), a variety of core graphing and analysis improvements, and a beta for Prism Cloud. The enhanced functionality makes it easier for scientists using Prism to collaborate and integrate diverse data into their scientific workflows and applications.

For more than 25 years, Prism has provided comprehensive analysis and simplified, powerful statistics exclusively for the scientific community. Prism is an advanced statistical analysis software designed to help scientists create graphs to visualize and analyze data. In February, Dotmatics announced that its R&D platform was the very first to integrate directly with Prism. That means scientists and researchers can export assay data directly to Prism from the latest release of the Dotmatics' cloud-based platform, a critical step towards ensuring that all information shared meets FAIR data principles.
"Scientists working to discover and develop life-saving therapies must be able to navigate mountains of complex data, yet they are impeded by technologies and processes that hinder openness, reproducibility and collaboration," said Trajen Head, PhD, and head of product strategy for Prism at Dotmatics. "The industry is moving towards adopting FAIR standards to address these challenges and Dotmatics is committed to helping organizations extract greater value from their data. This update is a massive leap forward for the 750,000 scientists who use Prism in their workflows."
A first look at Prism 10
The new, more open Prism file format helps organizations connect scentific workflows that allow for greater collaboration and interdisciplinary research. That means that any data that goes into Prism can be programmatically extracted for further insights beyond the scope of a single study. The announcement coincides with the launch of Dotmatics Luma™, a revolutionary scientific data platform that flexibly aggregates all relevant data into intelligent structures enabling clean, reliable data analysis that paves the way for meta-analysis and AI & ML-based algorithms. The Prism file format will allow for a future integration into Luma™, helping scientists and administrators in life sciences unify and analyze large volumes of data for better decision-making.
The .prism file format stores raw data, analysis parameters and results, in an accessible industry-standard format like CSV, PNG, and JSON. This means ever-growing, and increasingly complex, data sets can be utilized both inside and outside of Prism through modern scientific workflows. By leveraging the data collected in previous experiments or analyses, scientists can facilitate efficient data reuse and promote transparency in research to make more informed decisions in future experiments. In the spirit of safeguarding interoperability and reusability, the new file format allows Prism customers to embrace FAIR data principles.
The Prism Cloud beta simplifies collaboration by allowing users to share their projects (graphs, layouts, data tables and results) with their colleagues within a shared workspace. With Prism Cloud, users can publish their projects to the cloud with a single click. They can quickly engage in discussions and acquire feedback, allowing them to work and iterate in a more agile manner, and without having to send files back and forth.
"Prism is my go-to program for scientific graphs, and I strongly recommend it," said Maarten Boers, MD, PhD, MSc, Emeritus Professor of Clinical Epidemiology at Amsterdam UMC. "It has all the necessary graph types, an intuitive interface, and default settings that produce proper graphs right out of the box. In addition, its stats module allows you to do quite extensive analyses without resorting to other programs. My publications and teaching on this topic both lean heavily on this program. I'm excited about the possibility of a cloud version that will allow better collaboration."
