CZI – the format for microscopy

The CZI image format developed by Carl Zeiss saves all information regarding your images, including multidimensional, time-lapse or Z-Stack image types. The format groups together your image data with all relevant information in one compact file. It includes additional metadata including your microscope´s settings, exposure values, fluorescent dyes used and much more.

This information is always available allowing you to reproduce the same conditions at any time. The CZI format is compatible across our ZEN product family, as well as additional software suites in various operating systems.

Please complete the following form to receive the documentation license free of charge or learn more about the CZI image format.
