Ramona Optics was founded in 2016 by Dr. Mark Harfouche and Dr. Horstmeyer to solve a long-standing problem in microscopy - the inability to form high resolution images over an area larger than a few square centimeters. This fundamentally limits what we’re able to see and how quickly we’re able to see it. Ramona Optics is developing the first gigapixel microscope that can capture cellular-level detail over an entire square foot. By combining an array of cameras, structured lighting and machine learning software, we’ve created a computational microscope capable of large field-of-view, high resolution imaging. The company is located within the Duke BRiDGE Space in the Chesterfield Building in downtown Durham. For more information, please visit the company website.
SafineAI was started in 2019 by 5 members of the Computational Optics Lab to provide new diagnostic tools to improve the speed and quality of pathology-based diagnoses. The company is in its very early stages. Please contact Amey Chaware and Pratik Bokadia for more information.
