In this paper we present a modular framework named CellNote for supporting the manual and automatic annotation and analysis of cellular images. The framework is adaptable to a variety of microscopy imaging scenarios and experiments, and allows the integration of computer vision plug-ins for full automation. It was deployed in a Leishmania research laboratory where a total of 9 biologists have used it and evaluated it, annotating nearly 3000 images. Usability results using QUIS (Questionaire for User Interaction Satisfaction) showed very good acceptance, obtaining very high marks in simplicity of learning and use.
