in-line process monitoring

using digital holographic microscopy

Holloid´s 24/7, real-time, image-based inline monitoring helps producers of food, pharma and energy to reduce costs, improve quality, and raise safety.


Our Innovative Technology

See what you have not seen yet

Holloid offers a novel type of in-line monitoring system and an associated label-free technique that provides image-based data on colloids. This technique does not require a priori assumptions while providing statistics on individual objects. 

Holloid provides real-time multi-dimensional data on physical characteristics. We can quantify the following physical properties in-real-time for all objects:

  • Static properties (require snapshots only):

    • number

    • size

    • shape

    • eccentricity

    • amount of scattered light (dry mass)

    • inner structure (of cells: centrosome, inclusion bodies, etc.)

  • Dynamic properties (require multi-image acquisition, “movies”):

    • translational diffusion (hydrodynamic size)

    • rotational diffusion (asymmetric objects)

    • sedimentation rate (density)

    • interaction potentials

including motion and interactions, of cells and other colloids, based on 3D imaging, with the throughput of cytometry.
