The Huygens Software is considered the golden standard for deconvolution and restoration of microscopy images. For more than 25 years, Huygens operates at the forefront of high quality image deconvolution for nearly all types of microscopes, including widefield, confocal-based, STED, Array Detector and Light Sheet systems. Sophisticated correction options for chromatic aberration, crosstalk and drift together with Huygens 2D-4D multichannel visualization and analysis tools facilitate users to complete their imaging workflow.

Huygens Suite 19.10

Huygens latest version includes many new additions, such as the brand-new interactive Huygens Fuser for fusing and deconvolving light sheet multi-view datasets. Huygens Fuser facilitates manual alignment of multi-view data by offering direct visual feedback. Huygens 19.10 also includes the option to analyse 3D SMLM data with Huygens Localizer, and many new 3D rendering functionalities, like cutting planes, depth-coded coloring, and combined iso-surface and SFP rendering. More information about this new version can be found here.
