Features

  • Convert ABF to CSV for easy analysis in programs like Excel

  • Convert to ABF to ATF for analysis in legacy analysis software which does not support the latest ABF file formats

  • Batch convert entire directories of ABF files with one click

  • A command line utility is provided for automated conversion in complex directory structures

Supported Platforms

AbfConvert is written using a .NET Standard library, so in theory it will run on Windows, MacOS, and Linux. However, AbfConvert uses Axon's official DLL to interface ABF files. Since this DLL only supports 32-bit (x86) Windows platforms, AbfConvert must be compiled a 32-bit x86 application, limiting the systems it can effectively run on.
