Huygens Professional is an image processing software package, part of
the Huygens Software, tailored for Doing Deconvolution of microscopic
images. With Huygens Professional you can restore images without
being a specialist on image restoration and optical theory.
For instance, intelligent tools make it possible for you to obtain the
instrumental Point Spread Function of your microscope from an easily
recorded latex bead image. This enables you to make sure that your
microscope is indeed functioning optimally and ensures optimal
Automatic estimation of the BackGround.
Automatic Bleaching Effects correction.
Automatic deconvolution of Time Series.
Automatic correction for Spherical Aberration.
Guides you along Multi Channel deconvolution.
Simulation of microscopic image formation.
Experimental distillation and theoretical calculation of Point Spread
Handles many File Formats.
Remote displaying with X11.
Direct Tcl/Tk command input is possible in a versatile Tcl Shell.
4 different deconvolution algorithms to choose from for optimal results.
Various Image Processing Functions available for restoration and analysis,
as commands or to use interactively.
Powerful Pro Slicer viewer enable you to inspect and compare multi-channel
images in 2D, 3D and time.
Fast Mip projection or volume renderer by Simulated Fluorescence Process
can be used to visualize your results.
Volume visualization with the Sfp Renderer and the Surface Renderer.
Interactive analysis tools: Object Analyzer Colocalization Analyzer.
Huygens Professional provides you the most convenient tools for restoring
your images. It contains tools to restore high-noise fluorescence images,
easily derive point spread functions and efficiently restore high quality
Fast algorithms and smart memory allocation schemes minimize the
computational load and memory requirements to your system.
This gives you the opportunity to run restoration tasks also on low cost
Huygens Professional offers many mathematical and arithmetic operations which
can be applied in real and Fourier space. Furthermore, Huygens Professional
contains a growing number of tools to segment, label and analyze objects in an
image or compute ratio images taking the noise properties of the input
images into account. Image types range from 2D images of integers to 3D time
series of complex numbers and multiple channels. The system is capable of
handling a large number of images simultaneously, enabling you to effectively
preprocess images prior to visualization.
Huygens Professional comes with three user guides.
The first is the user guide which offers clear documentation on
It explains the different windows of the interface, like the main window,
the expand viewer, the operations window and the Tcl interpreter window.
Also in the manual is information on how to use Tcl for scripting the
Huygens Professional to do tasks which can be automated.
The second is the Huygens Professional Reference Manual which offers
information on topics of deconvolution and more in depth information
on the use of the Huygens Professional.
The third is the SVI Deconvolution Recipes for image restoration.
It contains specialized knowledge and tips on topics like recording
microscopic images, how to get a Point Spread Function and information on
New features in v3.4
This is what you will find in the Huygens Suite release with Huygens Compute
Engine version 3.4, to be released in Q2 of 2009.
* A brand new Movie Maker optional module. This tool allows you to easily
create sophisticated animations of your multi-channel 3D images using
the powerful Huygens Visualization renderers.
* A HDF5 file format reader.
* A File Series Tool for data selection within large file series.
* Histogram analysis for the columns of the Object Analyzer.
* Speed improvements in the interactivity of the Object Analyzer and
the Surface Renderer.
* Scale bars in the Surface Renderer and Fast Mip renderer.
* A button for the Surface Renderer to render in high quality mode before
saving the image.
* Enhanced contrast in the overlays in the Twin Slicer and Orthogonal
* Fixes in reading the metadata of Zeiss ZVI and Leica LIF files.
* Improvements on the Batch Processor: allowing saving multidirectory
single TIFF files and other fixes.
* Better handling of experimental PSFs in large spherical aberration
situations, that previously caused too many bricks.
* The plot command in Huygens Pro can now plot not only functions of one
variable in 2D, but also functions of two variables in 3D.
