Gladstone Institutes

Member of San Francisco’s Holographic Imaging Cytometry Center of Excellence

Gladstone Institutes, University of California in San Francisco (UCSF) and PHI jointly operate San Francisco’s Holographic Imaging Cytometry Center of Excellence. The Center’s activities focus on bringing the benefits of holographic cytometry and machine learning to the San Francisco research community, by providing education and technical support.

Gladstone Institutes is an independent, non-profit life science research organization located in the epicenter of biomedical and technological innovation in the San Francisco Bay Area. Gladstone has created a research model that disrupts how science is done, funds big ideas, and attracts the brightest minds.

The Gladstone Histology and Light Microscopy Core provides expert technical assistance, training, consultation and collaboration with all aspects of experimental design, sample preparation, image processing, and data analysis to scientists from Gladstone, UCSF, and the Bay Area scientific community. The Core is always looking for new imaging technology that can push the limits of research. HoloMonitor is used by a variety of users to answer a broad range of research questions.

HoloMonitor M4 enables our researchers to explore morphological and patho-physiological properties of various cell types in a volumetric (fast), label-free (minimally invasive to cells) and user-friendly (easy to handle) manner. We are excited for the research development and discovery opportunities HoloMonitor brings to the Gladstone Institutes, UCSF and Bay area research community.
