How you can freely and fully test our image restoration and analysis software


The Huygens Software is a collection of packages for image restoration, visualization and analysis, specially intended for fluorescence microscopy. See what our users say about our products at the Customer Testimonials page.

While you are testing these programs you get the same high-quality support as normal users, including extended access to the SVI-wiki on microscopy.

Download the software

You can freely download the software for your specific platform from our Download Section.

Install the software

It is very easy to install. See Huygens Installation for platform specific details. To read more about the programs, see Huygens Software.

Ask for a free of charge test license

The program has many FreeWare functionalities that will work directly, but if you would like to test all the available options (including HuygensDeconvolution) you need to apply for a test license and install it.

Test licenses are free of charge. During the testing period you will gain access to all of the capabilities of the HuygensSoftware and also receive our full technical support, including assistance in restoring your datasets and access to this wiki's private articles.

After installing the software, find out your SystemId in HuygensEssential Help -> About menu. To prevent any typing error use the copy button in that dialog to save the ID to the clipboard and paste into an e-mail. Send the system ID to sales at svi.nl, you'll be provided with a license string.
