3D microscopy imaging and deconvolution
The Huygens Suite is a package that includes most of the programs part of the Huygens Software.
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 restoration results.

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 images.
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.
