Supported file formats

Our filesystem supports any file format supported by Bioformats (see limitations below). You can see their supported formats here.

Most battle-tested formats

Some formats have been used and tested more extensively on Biodock. If you can export files in multiple formats, you should use these.
  • .tiff/.tif
  • .svs
  • .czi (with limitations below)
  • .lif (with limitations below)
  • .png
  • .jpg/.jpeg

General limitations

Time series
Biodock does not support time series data within a single file, time series traces on the Dashboard, or tracking objects between timepoints. If you would like to analyze on time-series data, you can separate each time point into it's own folder. This will allow you to compare metrics across time points on the dashboard.
3D data
Biodock only supports training and analysis on 2D (but multichannel supported) images. This means that Biodock does not yet support volumetric metrics. If you have 3D images, you can currrently:
  • Use max projection images
  • Pick z stacks to do analysis
  • Run training/analysis across each of your z-dimension images
