Our mission statement

To provide reliable, high quality, easy to use imaging tools for scientists working in light microscopy. Our dedicated team stays in close contact with the international scientific microscopy community to continuously improve our Huygens software, keeping it at the forefront of technology.

Huygens developers are imaging experts in microscopy

Started in 1994 Scientific Volume Imaging ( is currently  the sole independent company in the world that offers high quality restoration (deconvolution) and analysis software for all types of fluorescent microscopy. Namely confocal, widefield & brightfield, spinning disc, multi-photon, STED and SPIM/light sheet microscopes.

The whole software suite is called ‘Huygens’ in honour of the famous Dutch physicist and mathematician Christiaan Huygens.  

We develop software for scientists who need solutions. We have no external shareholders, venture capital investors or the like who have their own agenda’s for maximizing profits instead of maximizing science.

Huygens deconvolution grew in the last 22 years into a generally used standard to find the truth behind microscopic images, resulting in far more details in scientific microscopic imaging then the acquired images can offer.

We’re on the look-out for talented developers and account-managers who want to contribute to the Huygens software in a young talented team.
