Trial License Manager

ZEISS Portal

1. Introduction

You want to ensure you see fantastic benefits from your new tools. With the new Licence Manager, you can trial ZEISS software packages at no cost. You can trial every software package once and, if you have any questions or would like to purchase a license, contact us and we’ll be happy to help.

2. What Is the Right Trial License for Me?

Depending on your instrument and the image analysis workflow you would like to test, you can choose from several ZEN and Labscope trial licenses and license bundles. You can use the following matrix to pick the right trial bundle for you:

ZEN (blue edition) Acquisition bundle

We have a microscope running ZEN (blue edition)*. I would like to unlock and test additional acquisition modules on the microscope that are currently not available.

ZEN (blue edition) Analysis Bundle

I would like to open files generated by ZEN (blue edition)* for further analysis on a computer that is not connected to a microscope. For this trial, I will install offline ZEN version (ZEN desk) on a computer with no existing licensed ZEN installation.

ZEN core Analysis Bundle

I would like to open files generated by ZEN core** for further analysis on a computer that is not connected to a microscope. For this trial, I will install an offline ZEN version (ZEN Analyzer) on a computer with no existing licensed ZEN installation.

ZEN core Acquisition Bundle

We have a microscope running ZEN core**. I would like to unlock and test additional acquisition modules on the microscope that are currently not available.

Labscope Module Fast Panorama

Labscope Module Multi Channel

I would like to test advanced acquisition functionality on an existing Labscope installation.

* ZEN (blue edition) includes ZEN pro, ZEN system, ZEN Celldiscoverer, ZEN slidescan and ZEN Lattice Lightsheet

** ZEN core includes ZEN core, ZEN core SEM, ZEN core Smartproof and ZEN core Visioner

ZEN License Bundles

We offer the following ZEN license bundle types:

  • Image Acquisition Trial Bundles are used to unlock additional functionality on your ZEN-driven ZEISS microscope. No new ZEN software must be installed for the trial; the license bundle will enable additional functionality within your existing ZEN installation.

    Please note: unlocked functionality will correspond to your currently installed ZEN version, and not to the newest available ZEN version. This license bundle cannot be used to install ZEN on a new computer, or to upgrade an existing ZEN to the newest version.
  • Image Analysis Trial Bundles allow you to install an offline ZEN version (ZEN desk or ZEN Analyzer) on a computer that is not connected to a microscope. You can use any computer for the trial, as long as there is no existing licensed ZEN installed on it.

    Each of the above bundles exists for ZEN (blue edition) and for ZEN core
