# How to install?¶

FlowCytometryTools is a python package written in python 2.7. FlowCytometryTools depends on a few scientific and data analysis libraries: matplotlib (>1.13.1), pandas (>0.12.0), scipy).

1. The simplest way of installing all the required dependencies is by install either canopy or anaconda.

2. Optional: if you intend to use the FlowCytometryTools GUI for drawing gates you’ll also need to install wx-python.

3. Go to your command terminal and enter the following:

pip install flowcytometrytools


(Note: Please do not use sudo when installing with pip. Instead figure out how to use virtual environments or get anaconda/canopy.)

That’s it!
