Virtual SVI Huygens Imaging Workshop

April 20th and 21st, 2022 (EDT/PDT/CEST, New York/Los Angeles/Amsterdam)

Get the best out of your microscopy image

Unlock the true potential of your microscopy images with the Huygens Software. During this free virtual workshop, you will learn how to acquire the best possible image and how to use the specialized Huygens features for restoring, visualizing and analyzing your microscopy data. Using a collection of demo images, you will get hands-on experience with our world-renowned software. Workshop material (incl. a manual, demoimages, and info to obtain the software) will be made available on time. Our two virtual courses in 2021 had more than 1K participants.Click here to see some reviews.
