We are a multi-award winning Biotech firm.

Our vision is to provide automated image analysis for anyone anywhere.
Our cloud-based image analysis software transforms ordinary mobile devices into powerful tools enabling anyone to take a microscopic image and receive accurate and reproducible results in seconds without specialized expertise needed.



We are an award winning startup. We want to simplify microscopy and make it accessible and easy for everyone to use. Our automated image recognition software and mobile microscope enable you to take a microscopic image and get results within seconds, wherever you are.

Our smartphone microscope consists of a removable optical module (~400X), a smartphone, an application and a connection to the server hosting the image recognition software. The optical module is attached onto a smartphone and the magnified picture is visible through the app on the screen. The device then sends the image using WI-FI or mobile data connection to the server that analyses the picture and returns the result within seconds.
