The company

We are an innovative dutch company active in the field of medical research and quality assurance. Our goal is to make optical imaging easy. We do so by not only focussing on the usability within the design process - but also by providing superior after-sales support. This is based upon our extensive knowledge of the field and on close co-operation with expert groups at various scientific institutions. We are an independent manufacturer and are therefore able to choose the best components available on the market for our products.
Coming from the research field ourselves, we have a lot of experience in optical oximetry, especially near infrared spectroscopy. Our highly portable and multichannel NIRS devices can be used to monitor oxygen supply non-invasively in both brain and muscle tissue. Besides NIRS, we create gold standard x-ray phantoms for quality control in mammography and radiology.
