  • Deconvolution of widefield, confocal and multiphoton data
  • Object analysis
  • Colocalization analysis
  • Charged Software


From March 15th, access the FILM Huygens software package will be different. Huygens will be run on a dedicated Windows server, which is more powerful than the current system. This should increase the speed for deconvolution by a factor of up to three.

 Please contact film-service if you require access or training of the Huygens software
