Huygens Essential: Tailored for beginners and advanced users

Huygens Essential is part of the Huygens Software, tailored for deconvolution and processing of microscopy images. Its wizard-driven user interface guides you through the process of deconvolving microscopy images. Huygens Essential is able to deconvolve a wide variety of images ranging from 2D widefield images to 4D Multi Channel multi-photon, spinning-disk, confocal, STED or light-sheet images. Comparison views of raw and deconvolved results is easily performed with the dual 4D slicer tool, and powerful and fast renderers produce high quality representations of your data. Based on the same image processing engine as Huygens Professional, Huygens Essential combines the quality and speed of the algorithms available in Huygens Professional with the ease of use of a wizard-driven intelligent user interface. Also, Huygens Essential is based on cross-platform technology which makes it available on a large range of platforms. It is possible to get Huygens Essential and additional options as a node-locked license, or in a floating license configuration.
