Innovation Partner

Ovizio Imaging Systems, founded in 2009, is a Belgian company that provides the bioprocessing industry with a unique solution for gathering insight into their cell culture processes. The Ovizio platform utilizes labelfree, non-destructive, holographic microscopy to detect changes in cell morphology, which is recorded by the microscope and interpreted by AI into meaningful data. The bio-connect, a single-use disposable, allows for closed-loop travel of the cells between the bioreactor and the instrument for analysis. Some applications of interest include cell density and viability metrics, density and viability of cells on microcarriers, transduction or transfection efficiency, cell subtype differentiation, cell activation, and early stage bacterial or fungi contamination. Ovizio’s flagship instrument, the iLineF Pro, is GMP qualified and is commonly used in the cell & gene therapy industry where it is deployed in manufacturing, as well as process development.
