Accelerate your research with
Quantitative Live Cell Imaging

The HoloMonitor live cell imager viewed from the front

Meet HoloMonitor®

A Cell-friendly Incubator Microscope

  • Measure at once 30+ different cellular features from cell population down to single-cell level
  • Quantitative cell imaging, directly in your incubator using standard cell culture vessels
  • Easy and comprehensive presentation of real-time data and high-quality time-lapse videos
  • Easy-to-use, guided software that lets you reanalyse your experiments for more results

A Proven Technology

QPI imaging with digital holography

The label-free live cell imaging ability of HoloMonitor is based on the principle of quantitative phase imaging (QPI). Right inside your standard incubator, HoloMonitor enables intuitively non-invasive, real-time visualization and precise quantification of living cells without compromising cell integrity.

Simpler live cell identification

Your imaged cells appear as well-separated peaks from the background in a quantitative phase image. This way, HoloMonitor’s sophisticated software can automatically and robustly segment individual cells — of various confluencies, shapes and sizes.

Additional insights with fluorescence

The latest HoloMonitor add-on fluorescence unit allows adding a green fluorescence dimension to the label-free holography data and studying your cells’ behavior in even more detail.

Multiple results from one experiment

Reanalyse your data with different HoloMonitor assays

Monica Hellesvik, University of Bergen

The labs were still closed, and no additional experiments could be performed. Thus, the solutions had to come from our respective home offices. And here, the HoloMonitor’s built-in software solution showed its strength with a variety of applications and gave me the opportunity to re-analyze previous image material from home. New discoveries were made that strengthened our previous results.

The HoloMonitor M4 is a beneficial device for live-cell imaging, providing a lot of data. The good thing is that you can analyze your experiment using one software assay, and later, you can rerun the recorded data in another assay, which allows you to get the maximum from your experiment. I like it and would recommend it to all people doing a cytotoxicity assessment based on cell proliferation and optical thickness of the adherent unstained cells.
