The main purpose of HoloMonitor is to monitor, record and analyze your cell cultures in the least invasive way possible.
The compact HoloMonitor microscope is built to work inside your standard incubator. Thus, it ensures stable and physiologically relevant conditions.
- Avoid known interference of cellular markers for biologically relevant results.
- Small footprint to bring imaging inside your incubator.
- Not all live cell imaging microscopes have to be expensive.
- Get immediate real-time data and image sequences.
- Intuitive software to guide you from imaging to analysis.
- Controlled conditions matter for your cell culture.
The HoloMonitor Hardware
The base unit is the actual microscope, placed in your incubator and responsible for continuous imaging of your cell cultures.
The motorized stage supports a variety of culture vessels. Further on, it enables automated and continuous imaging of multiple positions in your sample.
The HoloMonitor Software
The heart of HoloMonitor is the modular App Suite software, with tailor-made apps for different live cell assays. Each app offers a guided setup of your experiment, automatic image collection and real-time data analysis and presentation.
Moreover, HoloMonitor App Suite excels when it comes to data reanalysis. Every experiment contains all data necessary to reanalyze it as another type of experiment. For example, a proliferation assay can be reanalyzed as a motility assay at a later point. Hence, no need to spend time, money and cells on a new experiment!
HoloMonitor Live Cell Assays
Designed by cell biologists, the HoloMonitor App Suite software offers a simple and guided user interface. So, with a self-explanatory workflow, it guides you from experiment setup to data presentation in 5 simple steps:
- Assay selection
- Basic setup
- Image capture setup
- Start capturing images
- View the results in real-time
In addition, you can easily create colorful videos and images to present your results. Of course, all data can also be exported to Microsoft Excel for further analysis.
HoloMonitor’s motorized stage supports a variety of culture vessels, each secured with a vessel holder. This means easy attachment and exact positioning on the microscope.
HoloLids are specially designed lids for standard cell culture vessels. They are optically superior to normal vessel lids and ensure the best possible image quality every time.
