More about the company

Micropos Medical was founded within the Swedish business incubator Chalmers Innovation in 2003. It originated from an international team of four oncology professors with extensive knowledge of radiation therapy and a firm belief in real-time tumour tracking. The first patent applications were registered in 2004.

Since then, the company has purposefully and tirelessly developed, marketed, and certified Raypilot – a positioning system that continuously localizes the prostate during radiation therapy. All along, close cooperation with a few high performing radiation clinics has strengthened the product development. Theses reference clinics also perform scientific studies regarding the system and are keen to share their experiences of the system to other potential customers.

As a company we learn a lot through an ongoing dialogue with our users. Simplifying is always on the agenda. Our aim is to offer the users a safe and easy to use-equipment, even though the technology behind it is extremely complex. The introduction of the Raypilot Hypocath catheter in 2018 implied a smoother workflow as well as a new generation of the system and, with the approval of the CE marking in 2020, a commercial breakthrough.

The head office including the research and development department is, since the start, located in Gothenburg, Sweden. Internal personnel resources are scarce but very well qualified and completed by consultant experts within various fields. Subcontractors are mainly found in the Gothenburg region; one is in northern Germany.

Prostate cancer is a global challenge. Micropos Medical has had an international approach from the very beginning, starting with sales in Europe. Well-chosen distributors assist the company in sales as well as in advancing knowledge about organ movement and the importance of precision in radiation therapy. The FDA approval in 2021 regarding marketing and sales in the USA opened a new promising phase in the development of the company.
