The vessel holder is developed specifically for the HoloMonitor M4 system and is used to fix the culture vessel to the motorized stage. This allows for high-precision imaging of multiple locations simultaneously.

You can easily secure the vessel onto the vessel holder and then attach it to the motorized stage, all without any tools in a matter of seconds. They are available in various formats to fit different vessels specifically:

HoloDry™

Avoiding internal condensation

Hand placing HoloDry on the back of HoloMonitor

The HoloDry canister keeps the optics and the interior of HoloMonitor free from condensation while HoloMonitor operates inside the cell incubator. Naturally, the canister is exclusively made of materials our cell biologists have verified to be non-cytotoxic, hence won’t damage your cells or your incubator.

Additionally, each canister comes with a Timestrip indicator. When placed on the incubator door, the strip will remind you by changing color when it once a month is time to replace the disposable canister.
