WELCOME TO PHILOPHOS!
We are a startup company founded in March 2018 to manufacture and sell cutting-edge optical imaging devices. As noticed by the company title made by combining 'philos,' meaning love, and 'phos,' meaning light, we pursue commercialization of various innovative optical technologies.
We will move forward step by step to make more people benefit from innovative medical devices, to become relieved from suffering from diseases. Recently, we are aiming at retina imaging, by beginning to develop core optical coherence tomography (OCT) components, such as spectrometer and light source driver. They are cost-effective and ultra-compact, which allows our OCT device to be mobile so that it can be used for the patients in developing countries lacking medical resources.
