Our Mission

Improve the care of cancer patients and reduce healthcare costs through advances in label-free chemical imaging and fiber-laser technology.

Our Story

INVENIO IMAGING, Inc. was founded in 2012 based on research from the group of Prof. Sunney Xie of the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard University. With funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Program, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Bioengineering Research Partnership Program and the University of Michigan Translational Research and Commercialization (MTRAC) initiative we delivered the first fully integrated Stimulated Raman Scattering (SRS) research microscope to the group of Dr. Daniel Orringer at the University of Michigan  (Nature Biomedical Engineering  1, 27 (2017)). The system has been validated at Michigan Medicine on samples from over 400 patients. With funding from the NIH SBIR program we are proud to announce the first clinical Stimulated Raman Histology (SRH) imaging system.
