The HoloMonitor live cell imager facilitates long-term in vitro imaging of cell cultures within an incubator. Scientists across the world use HoloMonitor to non-invasively image and to automatically obtain cell morphology, proliferation and migration data on a single-cell level, in real-time.
The non-invasive core technology, holographic microscopy, is label-free, cell-friendly, fast and simple to use — offering unique imaging capabilities for long-term live cell kinetic investigations at single-cell and cell population level.
Developed by and for cell biologists, the HoloMonitor live cell imager is designed to in vitro visualize and quantify adherent cells in real-time in a CO2 cell incubator environment. The App Suite cell imaging and 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.
Without requiring labels or stains, HoloMonitor generates both visual elements and quantitative data. Visual elements — such as sequences of cell images and time-lapse videos — illustrate cellular events taking place during the experiment, while the quantitative data puts numbers on what can be seen with the eye.
The label-free quantitative phase images recorded by HoloMonitor allow the HoloMonitor software to automatically identify and quantify individual cells in standard cell culture samples. As the cell culture sample is being automatically imaged and analyzed, the individual cell measurements are processed to provide kinetic population data of cell morphology, proliferation and migration in real-time.
Additionally, the in-depth Cell Tracking Assay allows individual cells to be tracked over time to detect and quantify rare heterogeneous cellular events.
