Users testimonials

Since its availability early 2016, many scientists, medical doctors, engineers and students have chosen LIFEx for their work. Here are a few comments about their experience:

Dr. Lee

It is a pleasure for me to be on the contributor list.

For me, LIFEx is really user-friendly and quite intuitive.
I hope that I can help improve the software in the future
