We are excited to announce the release of Glencoe Software's Bio-Formats 7.0.0-624, which includes everything in open source Bio-Formats 7.0.0 from the Open Microscopy Environment.

See the open source Bio-Formats 7.0.0 release notes from OME here.


In addition, highlights of Glencoe Software’s Bio-Formats 7.0.0 include:

  • Readers for CV7000/CV8000 acquisitions are improved to support multiple and varying “actions” (2D, Z stack, Z projection, etc.) across channels.

Glencoe Software has also worked to improve our documentation of licensing and dependencies for Bio-Formats. These can now be viewed here and here.

Please also note that bioformats2raw will soon include a reader for the Fluidigm Hyperion MCD file format. This reader is not included in core Bio-Formats, so this format will be supported in OMERO Plus via conversion only. Please see the work in progress here and stay tuned for a future release.

We’re always working to improve our products, and your feedback is important to us. If you experience any issues, please don’t hesitate to contact us at support@glencoesoftware.com. Thank you for your continued support and we hope you enjoy the latest updates to Glencoe Software’s Bio-Formats!
