We're a spin-off company from the University of Aveiro whose main activity is the R&D of radiation detection and imaging systems.

We want more talented students and researchers to fully understand and use a molecular imaging technology that can detect early disease and accelerate drug development: Positron Emission Tomography.

Our intelligent PET system and scanning method achieves high performance while reducing complexity and costs by more than 80%, enabling a much wider use of this powerful technology.

Our mission is to WIDEN ACCESS TO PET TECHNOLOGY, making it much more affordable to:

- Biomedical research laboratories performing preclinical small animal molecular imaging research;

- Technical Universities and Health Technology Schools teaching and training nuclear medical imaging professionals.
