OME-TIFF; Open Microscopy Environment Tagged Image File Format

OME-TIFF is a standardized file format for multidimensional microscopy image data. OME-TIFF maximizes the respective strengths of OME-XML and TIFF. It takes advantage of the rich metadata defined in OME-XML while retaining the pixel structure in multi-page TIF format for compatibility with many image-processing applications.
