Case studies

Chris Hollis analysing brain pattern

Our clinical-academic collaborative partnership is the foundation of our success. From mature technologies already on the market and improving patient care, to a vibrant spinout company portfolio to our emerging technologies, we have an excellent track record of supporting the pathway to clinical adoption. 

We showcase a short selection of our exciting technologies here. For a bigger selection of over 40 of our projects, search by clinical or technical area below.

Cancer diagnosis during surgery

Cancer diagnosis during surgery

Description
Using optical microscopy in this surgical technique, called tissue-conserving surgery, we can now produce images of individual cells and tumours with micron-scale spatial resolutions in only 20 minutes, making it clinically relevant and increasingly employed in the treatment of cancer, such as skin or breast.
