Epipole was founded in 2011 by Dr Craig Robertson, an expert in vision systems, algorithm development and mathematical problem solving. He immediately brought on board Bob Henderson to lead the optics design.
Epipole's team of engineers, software developers and regulatory experts have delivered the epiCam and are working on further new products and services, each intended to revolutionise their market in cost and capability.
Epipole is based in Scotland, UK. We're backed by investors who share our long term view and moral imperative. We partner with excellent local suppliers, enabling us to establish strong relationships and develop products quickly.
We work with several NHS hospitals, research institutes and independent clinicians to gain regular feedback on our products, which we use to improve existing hardware and software, and to develop entirely new ideas.
Epipole are a UK-based retinal imaging company - a rare thing indeed.
In late 2015 Epipole won the Higgs EDGE Award, a special award aimed at engineering, science or technology based businesses who have a product, or product under development, which is scalable and capable of globalisation.
The award recognised the ambition and quality of development at Epipole.
