Installing bioinformatics software can be notoriously difficult for the uninitiated. EPI2ME Labs aims to allow the analysis of anything, anywhere, by anyone. We have simplified the installation and use of bioinformatics tools and resources for Oxford Nanopore sequencing applications.

Installers are provided below for common platforms. If your platform is not listed please contact us. The current version of EPI2ME Labs is 4.1.3.

The Ubuntu package has been tested on Ubuntu 18.04, 20.04, and 22.04. It is expected to work on any recent Debian-flavoured Linux. The Red Hat package manager files are less well tested.

EPI2ME Labs 3

EPI2ME Labs 3 is deprecated and users are encouraged to move to the newer EPI2ME Labs 4 which provides simpler installation, an enhanced user interface, and improved management of bioinformatics workflows. Support for EPI2ME Labs 3 will removed in the first half of 2023. For more help installing and using EPI2ME Labs 3 see the installation and quick start guides.

The EPI2ME Labs Launcher is used to start, stop, and update the EPI2ME Labs notebook server, our interactive environment for bioinformatics exploration and learning. We provide executables for Windows 10, macOS, and Linux.
