Bio-Formats 6.1.0 was released on 20 May 2019. This update introduces support for 12-bit FLI files recorded with the HiCAM Fluo and the Lambert HS1000.

When loading a 12-bit FLI file in ImageJ with Bio-Formats 6.1.0, the image data and the background will be loaded as separate stacks. The image data will be presented as a 16 bit stack in ImageJ, but the original 12 bit dynamic range of the image data will be preserved. This conversion supports virtual stacks to work on large files.

We recommend updating to the newest version of Bio-Formats to ensure optimal compatibility with the Lambert Instruments FLI file format.
