What is a MRXS file?

Mrxs file extension has MIRAX Virtual Slide file type, developed by Carl Zeiss MicroImaging, which is associated with the "raster image files" category.

These image files are created by various MIRAX-compatible digital slide scanners, for example, devices from the 3DHISTECH Pannoramic series or Carl Zeiss MIRAX series. MRXS files include images of specimen samples taken from glass slides and save them on one digitalized virtual slide. This helps with analyzing samples and archiving microscope images. The format allows to perform a lot of different actions with these slide files: adjust colors, contrast, brightness, and magnify them.
