Connecting Leading Scientific Research to Customer-Centric Solutions

Optoceutics (from Optical & Pharmaceutics) was established in August 2018 as a university spin-out based on a world patent from collaborative research at Danish Technical University (DTU) and University of California Berkeley (UCB). We wish to be a part of, and advance the ever-increasing field of

Optoceutics' solutions are developed to meet these three goals:

1. Patient-centricity

Optoceutics is considering and engaging with patients, their families and practitioners early in the development to be aligned with their needs, wants, demands and preferences.

2. Non-invasiveness

Optoceutics is developing a solution that is comfortable, safe to use and completely non-invasive.

3. Home-based health care

The solution is to be used in the comfort of your own home. It is convenient and easily implementable in the everyday life.
