In pursuit of making novel research tools available to National Institute on Aging (NIA) and the medical research community in general, NIA and PHI are collaborating to develop an add-on fluorescence module that can be attached to the current model of PHI’s imaging cytometer, HoloMonitor® M4 — essentially creating a new product with a unique combination of holographic and fluorescence imaging capabilities for kinetic single-cell analysis.
HoloMonitor allows cell biologists to monitor physiological transformations of laboratory-cultured cells. The fluorescent module will allow scientists to also study the genetic activity of individual cells and its relationship to observed physiological changes.
NIA is one of the 27 research institutes of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), leading a broad scientific effort to understand the nature of aging and thereby extend our healthy, active years of life. National Institutes of Health is an agency of the United States Department of Health & Human Services.
