Profundus announced raising SEK 8.4 million from GU Ventures, GOBIA Enterprises and Paginera Invest
Profundus, a Gothenburg, Sweden-based producer of an innovative camera used for earlier diagnosis of retina-related diseases, announced securing a funding round of SEK 8.4 million ($1M).
Profundus, founded in 2019 by CEO Åsa Lindström, developed a new fundus camera which could be used to provide researchers and clinicians with a tool that can visualize currently subclinical changes of retinal disease. The camera is built on so-called Adaptive Optics, a technology that is normally used in terrestrial space telescopes and was developed due to a need for improved resolution in retinal imaging and offers 7-10 times higher resolution than conventional instruments over a considerably larger imaging area that competing concepts.
The camera is still in the prototype mode.
