Lumito specialises in medical technology for digital pathology and aims to improve tissue diagnostics with its patented technology. With technology based on up-converted nanoparticles (UCNP), high-quality images are generated with increased contrast and decreased irrelevant background noise. These images shorten turnaround time and provide higher-quality data for analysis. Lumito is a spin-off from a research team at Lund University’s Division of Atomic Physics and Laser Centre and is planning to initially launch its product SCIZYS for research laboratories.
Professor Stefan Andersson-Engels leads a research group in the Division of Atomic Physics and Laser Centre at Lund University, where they prove the advantages of a medical application of up-converted nanoparticles (UCNP). Their research launched what would later become Lumito AB.
