Huygens Object Analyzer

Obtain reliable object statistics from 3D-5D images.

Objects in your 3D-5D (multichannel, time series) images can be quickly and easily analyzed with Huygens Object Analyzer. Statistics of objects are produced within seconds with just a few button clicks. Object segmentation - which is often considered being a challenging and subjective task - is made easy with algorithms that set the seed and threshold levels optimally, offering instant results like number of objects per channel. Additional watershed tools, object filtering, and advanced region of interest (ROI) settings are at hand to fine-tune 3D object segmentation. The segmented objects are directly visualized by the high-end continuous Iso Surface Ray Tracing renderer and can be immediately analyzed. Many analysis modes and presets are available to help you quickly answering your specific research question.


Interactive Scene

Objects can be viewed from all angles, analyzed, discarded, and set as a reference anchor, using only your mouse cursor

Easy Segmentation

Advanced segmentation, ROI, and watershed options allow you to obtain the most reliable results from your valuable data

Many Object Statistics

All kinds of object statistics are presented within seconds in a clear table and graph, and can be exported as a text, csv, or MatLab file for further analysis.
