Release of Huygens Remote Manager 3.7

Friday 20 of December, 2019
We like to announce the release of Huygens Remote Manager (HRM) version 3.7.

The HRM is the web interface of Huygens Core and can be used to submit on-line jobs for batch image deconvolution and restoration.
HRM offers an excellent connection to the OMERO data management platform and allows also a direct up and downloading of images.

HRM is an open source project between SVI and several academic groups that runs already for many years.

More on this project can be found on the HRM Sourceforge page.

A demo version of HRM can be tested via https://hrm.svi.nl

A webinar on the HRM is scheduled for February 11th (2020). You can register here for this webinar.

We have selected five winners who's images and movies can be viewed here: https://svi.nl/ImageContestWinners

We hope you will participate in the next years' contest (again). Images can be submitted all year through!

We at SVI, wish you a happy holiday season

NVIDIA offers 20% discount on Titan RTX cards for educational institutions in Canada and USA

Thursday 28 of November, 2019
Many of you have experienced already the manyfold increase in Huygens performance with Nvidia GPU acceleration. The level of increase varies depending on the CPU type and the GPU cards that are being used. GPU cards can accelerate Huygens more than 30 times. To make use of GPU acceleration, your Huygens license needs to include a Huygens GPU option that matches with class of your NVIDIA GPU card(s).

Educational Institutes in the USA and Canada are now eligible for a 20% discount on Titan RTX cards.
For more information, we like to refer you to the NVIDIA website:

SVI and GATTAquant collaborate on the open GATTAscope project

SVI and GATTAquant announce collaboration on the open GATTAscope project

Hilversum, 01-10-2019 – Scientific Volume Imaging (SVI) is pleased to announce a collaboration with GATTAquant on the open GATTAscope project and introduce the HUYGENS Localizer as the recommended SMLM processing package.

HUYGENS Localizer introduces a seamless workflow to process, visualize and analyze Single Molecule Localization Microscopy (SMLM) data and facilitates a complete, fast, easy and very affordable super-resolution microscopy solution.

About the GATTAscope project
Jürgen Schmied, CEO at GATTAquant, elaborates on the project and it’s commercial partners: "Thanks to the GATTAscope project, any lab around the world can now easily set-up an affordable super-resolution microscope using the freely available GATTAscope design blue-prints and online tutorials. The recommended hardware parts can be purchased via the commercial partners. However, up until now we did not have a partner to take on the software (processing) part for the GATTAscope. The software is a very important part of accurate SMLM super-resolution microscopy, so we are very excited to have SVI-Huygens join as a commercial partner in our GATTAscope project. The HUYGENS Localizer package processes the acquired data extremely efficiently, and the results are truly impressive."

About the HUYGENS Localizer
The HUYGENS Localizer is a new user-friendly and ultra fast super-resolution SMLM image processing package. Remko Dijkstra, Product Manager Super-resolution at SVI, highlights: "The HUYGENS Localizer is tailored for processing SMLM data highly efficiently and accurately. All kind of users, including beginners, can now easily process, visualize and analyze their STORM, PALM, GSD and/or (DNA)PAINT data. The processing-pipeline in the HUYGENS Localizer is GPU accelerated, enabling a super efficient and interactive user experience. The ease-of-use in combination with accuracy and high processing speed makes the Localizer a perfect match for the GATTAscope project. Using GATTquant’s 20nm GATTA-PAINT nanorulers, imaged on a GATTAscope, we were able to demonstrate that 20nm two-point resolution is reached with ease using the HUYGENS Localizer package."

Experience the Localizer yourself
If you have a GATTAscope, or any other SMLM system: test licenses for the HUYGENS Localizer can be requested here, or by contacting SVI directly.
