Holoxica won the Nexxus Scotland Collaboration Award sponsored by the Edinburgh Science Triangle. The award acknowledges collaboration to develop a technology, product or service involving life sciences and a company or organisation based in the East of Scotland/Edinburgh City Region.
We have an impressive portfolio of designs that we have made in close collaboration with a wide spectrum of organisations within the biochemical and medical industries. We work closely with our collaborators to understand their visualisation needs and see how these can be addressed using our holographic technology. This involves making custom algorithms to work with their mathematical models (e.g. PDB) and volumetric datasets (e.g. CT, MRI, ultrascans).
Many of our designs are “world firsts” because holographic technology has never really been extensively applied in the biochemical and medical industries. For example,we made the first hologram of a protein (GFP) and various molecular structures as well as nano-machines. We also created the first 3D hologram of a human internal organ, the liver, from patient data, including visual information about arteries, tissue and other material. We can highlight tumours so that surgeons can plan extraction operations more effectively.
Holoxica has recently collaborated very closely with many organisations within the life sciences and related industries: Plymouth Marine Laboratory, Manchester University, Edinburgh University, The Fraunhofer Insitiute (Germany), … the list goes on.
Holoxica specializes in fulfilling the visualization needs of those who require their work to be seen in more than just static two dimensional images on a computer screen. Holoxica provides a holographic visualization medium that enables objects to be viewed in a true three dimensional format, without the requirement of specialist glasses or electronic equipment. Or entry into the Life Science Award displays our collaboration with a wide scope of related projects stemming from the atomic level all the way to incorporating the entire human anatomy.
The award ceremony was held on 3rd Nov 2011 at the Old College, Edinburgh University.
