Cell Health and Quality Control
It is well known that when cells are cultured over longer or shorter time periods they may undergo morphological changes. Quick assessment of the quality of a cell culture prior to experiments may therefore be useful to avoid unexpected or inferior results.
Since no labels or stains are needed when running a HoloMonitor assay, experimental setup is quick and easy (left). A fast evaluation of cell number and confluence, as well as cell area and cell volume, is useful to ensure that cells are viable and cell confluence and cell number is accurate, prior to start of the experiments (right).
