Live Cell Imaging for Your Incubator
The real-time HoloMonitor live cell imaging system operates in your CO2 cell incubator environment, hypoxia chamber or directly on the lab bench.
HoloMonitor is used by scientists all over the world to study the life cycle and behavior of living — or dying — cells, under physiologically optimal conditions. No stains needed. The non-invasive core technology, holographic microscopy, is cell-friendly, fast and simple to use, offering unique imaging capabilities for live cell kinetic investigations at single-cell and cell population level.
Developed by and for cell biologists, the HoloMonitor microscope system is designed to in vitro visualize and quantify adherent cells over time in an live cell incubator environment. The App Suite imaging and data analysis software allows researchers to create publication-ready images, videos and diagrams of cellular drug response and behavior, using a range of applications — all label-free.

Visualizes and Quantifies Cellular Events
HoloMonitor generates both visual elements and quantitative data. Visual elements, such as sequences of images and videos, illustrate cellular events taking place during the experiment, while quantitative data put numbers on what can be seen with the human eye.
From visual information in the holographic microscope images, the data is translated by sophisticated software algorithms into morphological parameters — optical cell volume, thickness, texture and many more — to provide kinetic cell analysis in your cell incubator.
