What is a CZI file?
A CZI file is a microscope image data file created in the Carl Zeiss CZI format. It contains image stacks, time-lapse series, and tile images captured from a Carl Zeiss microscope. CZI files are used for generating video sequences and performing medical research.
CZI files can be analyzed and visualized with Carl Zeiss' ZEN software. There is also a Java API called ZeissCZIReader that can be used for programmatically reading the contents of CZI files. ZeissCZIReader is part of Fiji, which is incorporated into the ImageJ image processing software.
