Huygens Crosstalk Corrector

Estimate and correct crosstalk for reliable analysis.

Crosstalk (aka bleed-through or crossover) is a serious problem when analysing multichannel microscopy images, because you record some signal as a certain dye when it really comes from a different one. With Huygens CrossTalk Corrector you can quickly estimate and correct crosstalk between multiple channels simultaneaously. Consider also Chromatic Aberration Corrector if you continue with colocalization or object-based analysis.

Image description:
Mitochondrial (TMRM) red signal is also detected as signal in the green Lipid Droplet (BODIPY) channel due to crosstalk (left side of the image). This crosstalk will have a serious impact on the analysis of lipid droplet structure. The right side of this image was corrected with Huygens Crosstalk Corrector. This spinning disk image was kindly provided by Kevin Knoops (Microscopy CORE Lab), Sabine Daemen and Matthijs Hesselink, Maastricht University, The Netherlands.

This two channel multiphoton image shows a live mouse brain (anesthetized animal), expressing GFP in microglia cells and CFP in astrocytes. Because the emission spectra overlap and NDD detectors were used, there is a very serious problem with crosstalk/bleedthrough falsely suggesting there are double stained cells (see arrowheads). Huygens Crosstalk Corrector succesfully corrects the bleedthrough.
