Holloid in a nutshell

Change how you view 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 in order to detect, identify and sort colloids, such as dispersed particles, cells and microorganisms, by innovative hardware and software solutions.

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