Fluoptics, founded in 2009 to develop and commercialize a technology based on CEA-Leti patents, is the only European company active on the fluorescence-imaging-assisted surgery market. It does business in 20 countries.
In late April, Fluoptics announced that it would be bought out for €26 million in cash on closing by Getinge, one of the world’s leading operating table and lighting suppliers.
The two companies had previously—more than a decade ago—completed a one-off R&D project together. They will now develop synergies around Getinge’s new center for excellence in optics and vision in Orléans, France.
Fluoptics and its 30 employees will remain in Grenoble so that they can maintain ties with their innovation ecosystem, which includes pursuing a relationship with historic partner CEA.
