Huygens Core: multi-user deconvolution via the Huygens Remote Manager

Huygens Core is ideal for running batch image processing and deconvolution jobs on systems that may contain multiple computer nodes, large scale 64 bit multiprocessors, and GPU cards. It can be used from the command-line interface or with the remote scheduler Huygens Remote Manager (HRM). HRM is an open source task manager that acts as a web-interface to Huygens Core. It can schedule many image processing (high content/throughput) jobs for many different simultaneous users. The user-friendly HRM web-browser interface accepts templates from Huygens Essential and Professional, and includes an optimized connection to OMERO (open source) data servers.

Features: multi-user batch deconvolution

Targeted at large scale multi-user applications like the Huygens Remote Manager. All processing functionality of the Huygens Professional is available through Tcl Huygens commands.

Handles many File Formats.
Can be used as compute engine for web-based deconvolution interfaces, like the Huygens Remote Manager.
Huygens Remote Manager (HRM) is an open-source application developed by the Montpellier Rio Imaging facility, the Facility for Advanced Imaging and Microscopy at the Friedrich Miescher Institute (FMI, Basel) and the BioImaging and Optics Platform at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne and Scientific Volume Imaging.
The HRM is a web task manager for servers that acts as an interface to Huygens Core do multi-user batch deconvolution.
You can download Huygens Core as part of the Huygens Suite from our download section. In that same section you can also find the Programmer Guide in a PDF file, but this manual can also be found online in a html version: Huygens Core Programmer Guide.

Flexible: write your own script and/or user interface

Huygens Core enables you to run your own scripts using the extensive set of Tcl Huygens image processing commands. Writing scripts for Huygens Core is very easy since it uses the popular Tcl scripting language. With it you may construct programs that launch many parallel image processing jobs to make full usage of a multiple cpu system or a computer grid. If you do not want to program yourself you may just use a customizable front-end like the HRM.

Visualization and Colocalization: Get more from your images

The Huygens Remote Manager also has some built-in visualization tools, and also includes the option of doing batch colocalization analysis.
