Primary cell with varying morphology imaged with HoloMonitor.

National Institutes of Health purchase HoloMonitor

Using HoloMonitor’s unique capability to non-invasively image and quantify cellular behavior over long time periods, scientists at the National Institute of Aging aim to understand how the heart’s “brain cells” contribute to aging.

Redefining Aging With HoloMonitor

By studying a primitive form of bacteria researchers at Queensland University of Technology in Australia have developed a new drug that has the potential to dramatically slow the aging process. Using HoloMonitor the researchers could see how old and damaged cells became young again. The promising results were recently reported by Australian television.

The Scientific Role of Commercialization

To transform an invention to a product that can be purchased by any scientist is the often unappreciated but crucial role of commercializing enterprises. This was the underlying theme of my presentation at SPIE 2018, “The evolution of Phase Holographic Imaging from a research idea to publicly traded company”.

Leap of Understanding

The special issue and the increasing number of scientific publications by HoloMonitor customers, and others, leave no room for doubt. Label-free time-lapse cytometry has begun to fulfill its promise to medical science — a leap of understanding.

Scale Matters

Metastases are believed to originate from a rare type of tumor cells known as cancer stem cells. A combined tool for identifying and studying rare cells would provide cancer researchers with new information to better under­stand the nature of cancer stem cells, and hopefully allow them to develop treatments against these rare and deadly cells.

Life is a mess

In our daily lives, we all know how important it is to plan ahead to avoid a future mess. Ironically, we ourselves are such a future mess.

Fighting cancer with nanoparticles

Using HoloMonitor, scientists at Northeastern University have shown that paclitaxel-resistant ovarian cancer cells stopped multiplying by cell division when treated with nanoparticles. Ovarian cancer causes more deaths than any other cancer of the female reproductive system.

No Blood, No Tumor

Scientists at Boston Children’s Hospital have used HoloMonitor to study living bone cancer cells. By studying their dynamics, they have successfully for the first time distinguished aggressive bone cancer cells that promote blood vessel formation from the harmless counterparts that do not promote blood vessel formation.
