Holloid in a nutshell

Big data on small things

Holloid was started in October 2020 to commercialize the pioneering research on holographic imaging and cytometry at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna (BOKU Wien).


Our vision is to bring the benefits of high-speed 3D imaging and optical characterization to the market, using innovative hardware and patented software solutions to detect, identify and sort colloids, such as dispersed particles, cells and microorganisms.

We provide real-time multi-dimensional data on physical characteristics of cells and other colloids (including motion and interactions), based on 3D imaging, with the throughput of cytometry.

Image colloids in real-time and 3D

High-throughput, label-free, high contrast images in 3D of each object

We measure size, shape, density, velocity, and other physical properties of colloids


We correlate these properties for all colloids in a sample
