We are proud to report that our new Holodetect product line garnered much interest and received positive feedback from the representatives of the microalgae industry at the AlgaEurope Conference in December 2023, in Prague.
We look forward to meeting you at analytica 2024, April 9-12, in Munich, where we will showcase our newest solutions (Hall A3, Stand 233).
Holodetect Enables Rapid, AI-Enhanced, Fully Automated Cell Counting and Classification
Our Holodetect instruments feature measurement cuvettes with depths ranging from 100 to 10,000 microns to accommodate different magnification needs. Leveraging the power of digital holographic microscopy, Holodetect captures the entire sample depth in a single image, eliminating the need for refocusing. This technology allows for reconstructing all sample objects from the recorded hologram with minimal sample preparation. It also supports flow-through operations for analyzing large volumes of samples.
The analysis of reconstructed images is powered by advanced artificial intelligence. These AI models are highly adaptable and can be trained to identify various species and objects within the sample accurately. Additionally, our holographic microscope can be integrated with fluorescent microscopy to enhance classification precision and conduct a variety of fluorescence-based measurements. This synergy between technologies ensures comprehensive sample analysis with unparalleled accuracy.
Holodetect sensors and instruments utilize Digital Holographic Microscopy (DHM) and artificial intelligence to automatically analyze volumetric liquid samples to detect, classify, and count objects, cells, and microorganisms in the 3-400 micron range.
Holodetect DHMs are well suited for inline, automated cell count measurements by class. In monocultures, Holodetect can distinguish algae cells from other objects in the sample (debris, small objects, etc.). In multi-species cultures, it provides cell count by species. It also gives an accurate estimate of cell count in cell conglomerates. It measures detailed cell morphology (cell size, shape parameters). Using the built-in fluorescent microscope, a measure of autofluorescence and an estimate of chlorophyll (or other auto-fluorescent molecule) content can be obtained. With appropriate labeling, living and dead cells can be counted separately.
Holodetect Instruments Ltd. is a spin-off company of HUN-REN SZTAKI, a research institute with the fundamental task of performing basic and application-oriented research in an interdisciplinary setting in the fields of computer science, engineering, information technology, intelligent systems, process control, wide-area networking and multimedia.
Holodetect devices are developed in collaboration with the Computational Optical Sensing and Processing Laboratory of HUN-REN SZTAKI. Our team’s main R&D focus is the development of digital holographic and fluorescent microscopes with applications, among others, in water utilities, microalgae, and beer brewery industries.
