The company was formed in 2010 and is another spin-off from the research group at the Department of Nuclear Physics at Lund Laser Centre, which has been led by Professor Stefan Andersson-Engels for a long time. Lumito can thus turn to a range of companies that have sprouted and grown from this research environment; Gasoptics Sweden AB and SpectraCure AB to name just two. The company is based on many years of work by the research team’s world-leading research in the field. After trying at an early stage to commercialise the technique through a business model based on licensing technology, the Company decided to take the technology to the market by developing its own Digital Pathology products.
