Gowerlabs is a new company focused on creating high-quality functional imaging devices for the research and healthcare communities.
Our non-invasive near-infrared imaging device, the NTS Optical Imaging System, was created by an expert team of engineers and physicists at UCL’s Biomedical Optics Research Laboratory (BORL), part of the Department of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering. BORL is the largest research group of its kind in Europe, and Gowerlabs is proud to be an integral part of it. We have been carrying out research in the field of diffuse optical imaging for over 25 years, and our systems are in use throughout the world.
The NTS Optical Imaging System is a robust, non-invasive, and portable device that can be used in challenging environments: Among many research initiatives, our system is currently used to perform brain imaging on infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) through the Evelyn Perinatal Imaging Centre at Cambridge University Hospital. Additionally, a miniature version of the NTS Optical Imaging System is being used to investigate cognitive development in malnourished children in rural Gambia through the Global fNIRS project, run by Professor Clare Elwell.
Gowerlabs is led by engineer Dr Nick Everdell, and receives cutting-edge theoretical input from biomedical optics experts including Professors Jem Hebden, Clare Elwell and Adam Gibson and Dr Rob Cooper. Our dedicated team ensures that our products are made to the highest standard and that the best possible service is provided to our customers.
